COMEDY*
Tonight at 9 pm, NerdMelt at Meltdown Comics presents Harmontown. It’s an evening where they’ve given Dan Harmon, creator of NBC’s Community, the opportunity to do whatever he wanted. “Attend a town meeting in a land free of brevity, where Mayor Dan Harmon and Comptroller Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway) take another small, vodka-soaked step toward colonizing the moon. Evening may include ineffectual rants, songs, shameful stories, special guests....” In other words, who knows what’s going to happen. $10.
