Courting Sketchfest: The Meltdown. 

On January 30, 2010 Cobb’s Comedy Club will be hosting a showcase entitled: The Meltdown. The main features of this showcases are comedians Jonah Ray and Kumail Nanjiani who curate the show in the back of a Los Angeles comic book store. Recently on Jonah’s podcast, the Nerdist (also featuring Chris Hardwick and Matt Mira), the Meltdown was recorded with performances by Kumail, Jonah, Chris, Kyle Kinane, Matt Braunger, Chris Fairbanks and others. Most of these performers will not be at the 1/30 Cobb’s show but will be featured in Sketchfest in other capacities. None the less, the Meltdown made for a good podcast and is one of the more anticipated shows at this year’s Sketchfest. The line up for Sketchfest includes Doug Benson, Greg Proops, Thomas Lennon and more. The Nerdist will also be recording/performing a show at Sketchfest on 1/28, also at Cobb’s. Check it out.
