It’s sort of odd to us that Set List: The Improvised Stand Up Show was born in LA and then toured the world to become a TV show in the UK and Australia and is only now distributed to the US, but we’re glad that it finally happened thanks to the Nerdist YouTube Channel.
Set List comes to Nerdmelt Showroom this Saturday night with a tip-top lineup!
Bob Odenkirk in the third episode for the Nerdist Channel!
Glenn Wool Drowns Clowns in the second episode of the Nerdist series!
TJ Miller kicks off Set List on the Nerdist Channel for YouTube’s Comedy Week!
Special thanks to Gilbert Gottfried and Big Jay Oakerson who dropped into Set List at The Stand in NYC. And Robert Kelly - you were brilliant!
Upcoming tour dates for the US and UK. Lineups include: Reggie Watts, Moshe Kasher, Eddie Pepitone, Greg Proops, Andrew Maxwell, Tony Law, Jen Kirkman, Paul Foot, Wil Anderson, Mike McShane, Jon Daly, Jerry Minor, Neal Brennan, and more.
And our WORLDWIDE SPECIAL LIVE STREAM ON THE FRONT PAGE OF YOUTUBE HAPPENS ON FRIDAY MAY 24 AT 6PM PACIFIC TIME - SPECIAL THANKS TO NERDIST AND THE JASH NETWORK!
From the upcoming UK TV series on Sky Atlantic.

Jonathan Winters. Today we lost a guy who lived the life of a true comic. A few years back, there was an article in a Santa Barbara paper that local business owners were getting annoyed, because to occupy his time in his eighties, Jonathan was making prank calls to their businesses. He didn’t record them; he didn’t call back and tell them it was him. He did it JUST FOR THE JOY OF DOING IT; nothing else. The only reason we even know about this is that when enough business owners recognized his voice (and prank skills?) they complained, and the story was published in the paper of them asking him to stop because they were getting tired of it. But he wasn’t getting tired of it. He lived for moment right to the end. Their annoyance made this sweet man’s pranks all the more sweet.
Attached is his final interview, conducted a few months back by his friend and fellow genius improviser Rick Overton.
Jonathan was scheduled to join us on Set List in Santa Barbara in February. He was up for it until about a week before the show, when he hurt his ankle and wasn’t able to join us. We missed him that night but that is nothing compared to now. We look forward to his prank calls from the afterlife.
