Grab your hover boards and self-tying shoes and prepare to hit 88 miles per hour as we get struck with 1.21 jigawatts and travel back in time on Tuesday, May 16 at 9pm at The Nerdist Showroom at Meltdown Comics, as we roast the guys who dared mess with the space-time continuum at Back To The Future: Fictional Roast.

May 16th, 2017 marks the newest edition of Fictional Roast at NerdMelt Showroom located in the back of Meltdown Comics at 7522 Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California.

Fictional Roast has the format of a roast show: there is a “guest of honor” and a cast of comedians each taking turns roasting the special guest of the night, and the show ends with the guest of honor taking the stage to roast back. The Fictional Roast  twist, is that we invite our favorite comedians to play and roast characters from specific fictional universes. This month, we’ve invited Matt McCarthy, Scout Durwood, Willie Hunter, Darien Sills-Evans, Andrew Michaan, Caitlin Durante, Erik Barnes, and Brad Gage to join us as beloved characters from the Back To The Future franchise for an evening of roast jokes that don’t hurt anyone’s real feelings!
Cast of Characters:
Marty McFly
Doc Brown
Jennifer Parker
George McFly
Lorraine Baines McFly
Mayor Goldie Wilson
Marvin Berry
Fictional Roast…it’s about to get real. Hosted by Eddie Furth and Ryan Pigg
Produced By Samee Junio, Eddie Furth, Ryan Pigg

Calling all Anime fans! IN THE YEAR 199X is a celebration of Japanese animation in the 1990’s, curated by your favorite senpais Zoë Moss & Jacob Strick. Join us as we unveil the works of over 90 artists in celebration of their all-time favorite anime influences.

Kids who grew up in the 90’s know it as the decade where anime found its crossover appeal in the West. It might have been on Toonami or on a bootleg VHS, but you were watching shows like Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon and Cowboy Bebop — not to mention some classic cinema like Ghost in the Shell, Perfect Blue and Princess Mononoke. Whether you prefer dubs or subs – or Digimon to Pokémon – prepare yourself for the most animetastic tribute to 90’s Japanese cartoons!

What: Opening party featuring food, music, 90’s anime nostalgia & fun!
When: July 3rd, 2015 from 7 to 11 PM
Where: Meltdown Comics inside Nerdist Showroom
7522 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90046 (map)
