Me and my sibs used to be way into alternative comedy, frequenting Luna Park (before it was turned into nightclub Pearl) and Largo. And that’s when we first came across up-and-comers at the time, Tenacious D, Sarah Silverman and David Cross…and then there was Patton Oswalt, a funny, harmless-looking guy with a dark side. So on top of the fact that the Nerd Show is three nerdy guys screening and narrating clips from their fave sci-fi movies, the fact that Patton is involved and this takes place at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre makes it a good bet for a night of hilarity and fun. Advanced reservations are sold out but a limited amount of tickets ($5) are still available at the door so get there early early Monday night to grab a seat.
If you miss out this time, you can always try getting tickets the next night for Patton’s Comedy Death-Ray which he’ll be hosting with Sarah Silverman, plus 20 other comedians doing short sets.
