The Tennessean wrote about our Guinness World Record attempt

Thanks to Dave Paulson and The Tennessean for writing up our 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. In todays paper, look for the Vandy-rape “GUILTY” headline, then flip to page 11A.

Thanks to everybody who has already donated to our IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign to help pay for the cost of the event! If you haven’t yet, there are a bunch of rewards including passes to the show, t-shirts, a limited edition Hatch Show Print & other wacky stuff. Buy up that stuff before it’s all gone, otherwise you’ll regret it forever and ever.

1/28/2015 Tennessean write-up of NashvilleStandUp's Guinness World Record attempt.

Mat Alano-Martin @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 2/1/2015

2/1/2015 6:30pm: Mat Alano-Martin w/ Kite Hale & more at Spiffy Squirrel Comedy Show at The East Room

Mat Alano-Martin comes to comedy from the world of rock and roll, where he spent 10 years touring North America as an Americana singer-songwriter, opening for a who’s who of indie rockers and roots revivalists and occasionally headlining his own smaller, less well attended shows. With a comedic style that bridges the alternative sensibilities of his indie-rock background with the more mainstream views of his rural and blue collar youth, Alano-Martin has appeared at comedy clubs, theaters, punk rock dives, redneck roadhouses, casinos, colleges, living rooms and everywhere in between.

Alano-Martin has appeared on the nationally syndicated The Bob & Tom Show, Laughs on Fox TV and at several festivals.
