Need some ‘feels’? Then get ready for a Kleenex box full of tissues and issues because FOLLOW THAT! is back to bring the pain - and then take it away - and then bring it back. Follow That! has been in residence at NerdMelt Theater since January and has been making a teary eyed splash by pitting LA’s best comics against the saddest videos on the web. The result is a one-of-a-kind standup set that fuses each comic’s best material with spontaneous, hilarious and ultimately uplifting revelations inspired by the "cry videos.”

LA’s top comics take the stage to watch the most emotionally challenging viral videos on the web - for the first time - in front of a live audience. These are the viral videos that make us cry, leave us speechless and sometimes even scare the hell out of us. They say tragedy + time = comedy. FOLLOW THAT! takes ‘time’ out of the equation.  After we watch the most heart-wrenchingly sappy & sometimes cringe-worthy vids on the web, each comic gets just 8 minutes to bring us from tears of sadness to tears of laughter. The twist is, that you decide which video each comic has to follow. Will you choose a softball, or will you go for the gut-punch?
