Alex Edelman at Meltdown Comics
Alex Edelman is a quintessential Millennial: born between the mid-80s and early 00s, an active Twitter account, a job his parents disapprove of – seriously can’t get more Millennial than that. And it is with this knowledge of himself and his generation he is able to grace us with the trials and tribulations of an everyday Millennial in his “Millennial” stand-up show at Meltdown Comics on May 28 at 7 p.m.
This show is no slouch. It won him the “Best Newcomer” Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe Festival – really saying something considering an American (he’s from Boston and is based in NYC) hasn’t done that since 1997. Since topping the Fringe Fest, Edelman has found himself performing “Millennial” all around the world and on the BBC 4 radio station. Well worth the $8 pre-sale, $10 door-charge of his show.
For those of you who are not yet acquainted with Meltdown Comics, more specifically the Nerdist Showroom where Edelman’s show is held, it’s something of an L.A. landmark. The store is one of the biggest remaining comic stores in the country and hosts tons of shows year-round. Meltdown Comics is located off Sunset Boulevard about 2 miles north of Farmer’s Daughter Hotel, and on the way to Hollywood. If you don’t find yourself at Meltdown for Edelman’s show, it’s well worth a visit if you are at all interested in comics, movies, collectible and more.
