Comedian/cartoonist Michael Kupperman and geek/indie rapper Adam WarRock are bringing their mix of comedy and music back to Littlefield in Brooklyn, whether you wanted it or not. Kupperman, whose work has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Adult Swim, and Comedy Central's TV Funhouse, and WarRock, who recently showcased at SXSW and has gained widespread Internet acclaim for his brand of pop-cultural indie hip hop, are here to force you to enjoy a night of comedy and music. Joined by some of the brightest comedy stars in the city, it's a night out on the town that you'll enjoy, mostly against your will.
Adam WarRock is a nerd and geek emcee who raps about popular culture, comic books, and other geek topics. He’s bringing his brand of Silver Age Hip Hop to Meltdown Comics, where he’ll rap about Marvel and DC comics, Doctor Who, and other geek touchstones on the heels of his best-selling album, The War For Infinity and the acclaimed Oni Press Mixtape.

Julia Wertz was born in the San Francisco bay area in 1982. She is the author/illustrator of the unfortunately titled autobiographical graphic novels The Fart Party vol 1 and vol 2 (Atomic Books) and Drinking at the Movies (Three Rivers Press). Her next book will debut in September 2012 from Koyama Press. She currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, with a cat who’s a total asshole. Her work appears in absolutely no other publications and she’s an irregular contributor to twitter. She is also part of PizzaIsland.wordpress.com.
James Adomian is a daredevil dancing queen renowned for the many masks he wears and his fiery populist satire -- but don't you know deep down he's just a kitten? James was a top-10 finalist on the most recent season of "Last Comic Standing" (NBC) and is a frequent contributor to Comedy Death-Ray Radio and other wild podcasts. He performs standup and characters live at Upright Citizens Brigade and at festivals, theatres, dive bars, party schools and radical political events across North America. Other credits include Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, The Late Late Show (CBS), FAce to Bush (Comedy Central), WordGirl (PBS) and The Onion Radio News, along with several underground cartoons and failed t.v. pilots. Check out his hit videos on Funny or Die, Atom, and YouTube -- and keep your chins up, you gorgeous nerdsluts: it's High Noon in the Garden of Good & Evil!
