Just like kids who have both Jewish and Christian parents, now you too can spend time with two different cultures with Meltdown Comics' Cinco De Melt-O. The interns of The Nerdist Showroom -- Jake Baumgart and Adam Murray -- have cobbled together a cornucopia of comedy with stand-up and performances by sketcheteers Kyle Clark, Celeste Reno, Matthew Burnside and many others. The organizers boast that you'll meet the founder of Cinco de Mayo itself, preview the latest buddy sitcom about two serial killers and witness the public shaming of a wizard (as opposed to private shame, which is what most modern wizards experience) -- or, at minimum, enjoy the special guest appearances of DC Pierson (of NYU Internet sensation Derrick Comedy), Dan Telfer (of The Onion), Ed Salazar (The Meltdown) and Ricky Carmona (Mash-Up). In case these chortlesome masterminds aren't tickling your funny bone quite the way you thought they would, there's also free beer and tequila -- for which there is an equal and opposite fall down for every stand-up. Meltdown Comics, NerdMelt Showroom, 7522 Sunset Blvd., Hlywd.; Sat., May 4, 7 p.m.; free. (323) 851-7223, meltcomics.com.
