Cuff'em and Stuff'em: Nerdist Podcast Vs Reno 911 LIVE
Reno's top cops, plus apocalyptic puppets, comic creations and watery graves.
#1. Policing The State - Reno 911's Ben Garant and Tom Lennon join Chris Hardwick at Meltdown on Sunset for a live taping of the Nerdist Podcast. The guys will discuss their new book, Writing Movies for Fun and Profit: How We Made a Billion Dollars at the Box Office and You Can, Too! Those who attend are guaranteed to get rich. Rich with laughter, that is. (June 30, 9:30 p.m.)
#2. Vintage Visions - Kitsch meets calamity when a perfectly perky '50s family is visited by a pair of ghoulish puppets in the play D is for Dog at Studio/Stage in Hollywood. You'll laugh, you'll gasp, you'll drink to the end of the world with the cast and crew at the special opening night reception. (July 1, 7 p.m.)
#3. Marvel-ous Montage - Artist Mark Todd is sure to infuriate and fascinate fanboys with his Force Field show at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Hollywood. Is it sacrilege to carve up old comics in the name of modern art? Go to the show and see. (July 1, 8 p.m.)
#4. Fishy Frights - Learn to fear both the ocean and the lake with a creature-feature double bill of Jaws and Piranha at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Director Joe Dante will be on hand to introduce his aquatic classic and talk pesky pisces with the crowd. (July 2, 7:30 p.m.)
