Nashville Comedians To Attempt World Record Breaking 8 Day Long Comedy Show

NashvilleStandUp.com Launches crowd-funding campaign to cover costs of live show & filmed documentary

Guinness World Records' "Longest Stand-up Comedy Show - Multiple Comedians" record breaking show April 12-19, 2015 at The East Room

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Jan. 17, 2015 // — NashvilleStandUp.com announced today it’s intention to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” during the Wild West Comedy Festival in April.

Beginning 6:30pm April 12, 2015, at The East Room in Nashville, Tennessee, the Nashville StandUp comedy scene will begin it’s attempt to make comedy history while creating as many opportunities for stage time for as many comedians as possible during Nashville’s popular comedy festival. The current Guinness World Record for this category is 80 hours and was achieved by the Laugh Factory in Hollywood December 6-9, 2010. That show included 170 different acts by 150 comedians.

Nashville StandUp plans on breaking the 3.3 day / 80 hour record and continuing through the entire duration of the Wild West Comedy Festival until April 19th. That’s 8 days, 192 non-stop hours of stand-up comedy featuring as many talented comedians from as many places as possible to manage.

The brainchild of Nashville-based comic DJ Buckley, the Guinness World Records’ breaking attempt show will begin and end with The East Room’s weekly “Spiffy Squirrel comedy show” with Chad Riden on Sunday nights & also include Tuesday’s regular “ULTIMATE COMEDY” open mic and several other shows-within-the-show. The non-stop 192 hour schedule will feature showcases, feature length and headliner length sets and surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune AND infamy and misfortune.

NashvilleStandUp.com launched an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign to help pay for the cost of the event, including the Guinness World Records’ fees, and includes stretch goals such as live-streaming the entire event online and the production of a documentary. Perks available to donors include VIP passes to the show, special silk screened show t-shirts, limited edition Hatch Show Print show posters, even chances to perform on stage and be included in the Guinness World Records’ listing.

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing stand-up comedy scene and the Nashville-based comedians that help make it a success.
