The NerdMelt Showroom proudly presents a night of stand-up comedy with one of our favorites, Joe DeRosa! Come join him as he performs a longer set and has some of his friends open including Jake Weisman and Beth Stelling!
DeRosa can currently be seen on History Channel’s I Love the 1880′s, and has appeared on HBO’s Bored To Death, FX’s Louie, IFC’s Z-Rock, E’s Chelsea Lately, and DirecTV’s The Artie Lange Show. He is a regular on Sirius XM’s The Opie and Anthony Show and Fox News’ Redeye with Greg Gutfeld. He headlines comedy clubs and colleges across the country and has been featured at South By Southwest, JFL Montreal Comedy Festival, The Moontower Comedy Festival, The New York Comedy Festival, Bonnaroo, and The Great American Comedy Festival.
In this interview-style, live talk show, host Lyssa Mandel invites guests to present poignant/painful creations from their adolescence on stage (poetry, drawings, songs, sketches, videos…Wicca boxes…) and follows with engaging questions that cut to the heart of how all our teenage pain is the same. And it’s funny. Think of it as Judy Blume meets Dr. Phil. Raucous laughter and redemption ensue. It’s grown-up show-and-tell for the child-at-heart in us all.
With special guests…

Rachel Surnow‘s solo show titled “Attachments” opens January 24, 2015. There will be a series of new illustrations, drawings, and prints.
“Attachments” is about the pains, the pleasures, the sins and the sinners. It’s about what you told me 2 years ago… 2 hours ago… Or maybe it’s about what you never said. The memories I’ll keep, and the ones that I’ll let go of. It’s about you. About me. Our secrets.
Rachel Surnow is an LA based illustrator and designer. She received her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2013. For the past several years she has been exploring her style and pushing the concepts of distortion, femininity, and the unconventional audience.

Greg Behrendt is the patron saint of comedy comebacks. He specializes in blazes of success, unfortunate sputters, and then triumphant self-discoveries that leave him older, wiser, and sporting great knitwear. The stand-up comic and author of He’s Just Not That Into You, Behrendt was lord of the dating advice racket for part of the ’90s. He was an official consultant on Sex and the City and even host of his own TV show. Then it all went away. It’s a pattern: In the mid ’80s he was garlanded as a rockabilly star in Japan, made a record, and…yes, it all went away. This show is an ode to that phase in Behrendt’s life.
I Am The King Sweater is standup comedy show with guitars. It has the vibe of Elvis’s 68 comeback w/o the fame, the looks or songs but to be certain it has many more jokes. It is in fact the mostly true story about Greg’s failed mid 80’s Rockabilly career in Japan, dead kangaroos, children, and my subsequent return to music having finally been given back the rights to his 1980s single “Cakebox”…which, as luck would have it, has just fallen out of rights protection in.
All of this brought to you by: The King Sweater Cosmetics Co of Japan makers of fine products of men like Glitter Cake pomade, Pink Tiki Pineapple back and ass scrubings, Mosheen Face tantalizer and many 5 more to you! (Taken word for word from website)

It’s just Greg Proops and you. There’s no fan fare. Proops takes center stage at small table and chair setup with a single microphone. Then he’s off. An hour of great conversation that flies by at a breakneck clip. He crams the feeling of a great two-way conversation into the lecture-style format of a one-way conversation.
Part professorial, part crazed comedian, Proops forms the show around his talent and passions. The show flows like a love letter to tangents. The Proopcast has been to Australia, New Zealand, Montreal, London, Edinburgh, Austin, Cleveland, San Francisco and off the coast of St. Martin in the Caribbean all in one year. Now you must fall.
Be there and experience joy for once in your life.
