The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics   7522 Sunset Blvd   Los Angeles, CA 90046

From Paul Provenza and Troy Conrad…  Set List: Stand-Up Without A Net is a TV series in the UK and Australia, as well as a sold-out hit at festivals worldwide, including Edinburgh, Melbourne, SXSW, New York, Montreal, Ireland, Austria, and more. Top comics are given outrageous, never-before-seen topics in the moment, and perform as if it was the material they meant to do. Both the comic and the audience see the topics for the first time on a projection screen and the fun begins.

A regular NerdMelt staple, Set List is also a 60-episode web series on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube.

In this interview-style, live talk show, host Lyssa Mandel (& co-host/boyfriend Phil Casale) 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.

Featuring the adolescent treasures and more from:
CHARLA LAURISTON (Unbreakable Kimmy SchmidtPeople of Earth)
(Conan, Comedy Central, Seeso)
(Adult Swim, MTV)
with a rap interlude from ZACH SHERWIN (America’s Got Talent, Totally Biased, The Pete Holmes Show)

Need some ‘feels’? Then get ready for a Kleenex box full of tissues and issues because FOLLOW THAT! is back to bring the pain – and then take it away – and then bring it back. Follow That! has been in residence at NerdMelt Theater since January and has been making a teary eyed splash by pitting LA’s best comics against the saddest videos on the web. The result is a one-of-a-kind standup set that fuses each comic’s best material with spontaneous, hilarious and ultimately uplifting revelations inspired by the “cry videos.”

LA’s top comics take the stage to watch the most emotionally challenging viral videos on the web – for the first time – in front of a live audience. These are the viral videos that make us cry, leave us speechless and sometimes even scare the hell out of us. They say tragedy + time = comedy. FOLLOW THAT! takes ‘time’ out of the equation.  After we watch the most heart-wrenchingly sappy & sometimes cringe-worthy vids on the web, each comic gets just 8 minutes to bring us from tears of sadness to tears of laughter. The twist is, that you decide which video each comic has to follow. Will you choose a softball, or will you go for the gut-punch?

Hosts: Matt Lieb (Star Wars Podcast, Vice, AJ+)  & Jason Webb(Bridgetown, Amazon Comedy)
