Guinness World Record attempt update #3

We have a few big updates about NashvilleStandUp’s attempt to break the Guinness World Records’ for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” during the Wild West Comedy Festival, beginning April 12th.

First, so far we have raised over $3,500! That is wonderful and unbelievable and just fantastic. THANK YOU. There are 14 days left on our IndieGoGo campaign. Please help us spread the word by sharing our crowd-funding page with your friends:

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

This is great: Our good friends at Zanies have been kind enough to set up a benefit showcase fundraiser to help supplement the costs of this historic undertaking. The sucka-free lineup features Chad Riden, Michael Hampton, Mary Jay Berger, Gary Fletcher, Brett Cantrell, Jordan Jensen, Josh Wagner, Josh Lewis and DJ Buckley. ALL proceeds go to cover the costs of the Guinness World Record attempt! Get tickets now!

Also, Guinness has given us their blessing and approval for this world record attempt! With that notice came a LOT of rules we were not previously aware of. There are three that relate directly to the comics in the lineup of the world record attempt show:

“Each performance by each individual comedian must last for at least fifteen minutes.”

“Each comedians may perform for longer if they wish, but they may not return to the stage for four hours after they finish their set.”

“All performers must be of a proficient standard. We define this as the comedians having at least 20 professional (paid) credits in a comedy club, theatre or bar and at least one year’s experience since their first paid gig. Evidence to prove this must be presented to the independent witnesses prior to the event and the witnesses must attest to this in their written statements.”

Previously we had offered 5 and 10 minute spots as IndieGoGo perks for $25 and $50 respectively. We have now removed those options.

Donors who DO NOT qualify will be able to (A) get a full refund; or (B) choose another perk at the same price break (t-shirt or hatch show print).

Donors who DO qualify who have already donated $50 for a 10 minute spot perk have automatically been upgraded to a new 15-minute spot perk for free.

Donors who DO qualify who have already donated $25 for a 5 minute spot perk have three options: (A) full refund; or (B) choose another perk at the same price break (t-shirt or hatch show print); or (C) donate an additional $25 and upgrade to the 15-minute spot perk.

We will be contacting each affected donor individually to make sure this is handled the way they would prefer. Thank you so much for all of your support! We really appreciate it.

Please share our IndieGoGo campaign with your friends! Comics who carpool together in groups will get first choice at time slots when we start scheduling sets.

Jarrod harris @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 3/8/2015

3/8/2015 6:30pm: Jarrod Harris w/ Wix Wichmann & more at Spiffy Squirrel Comedy Show at The East Room

Jarrod Harris is an oddly comfortable mix of trailer–park filth, comic angst and hipster irony. While his style may fit into several categories along the comedy spectrum, his clever writing only fits into one. Jarrod Harris has performed at premier comedy clubs across the US including the World Famous Improv Comedy Clubs, Punchline, Side Splitters and he has been featured on TBS’ “Lopez Tonight”, Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and has received recognition for his comedy work with San Francisco Comedy Competition Top 4 Finalist, 2010 Detroit Comedy Festival “Best of Fest” Selection, Host of the 2010/2011 Laughing Skull Festival and Campus Activities Magazine Top Comics to Watch for 2010. Jarrod was also the former voice and writer for the Jungle character on “Action Figure Therapy” series receiving over 30 million views. He was featured on the “Holy Fuck” album in 2013, and the LOL Comedy Festival 2014 held in Santa Barbara, CA which was filmed and released on Hulu. Late 2014, he will finally be releasing his first album after 12 years of stand-up comedy with Rooftop Records entitled, “Present And Talkative.”

Jarrod Harris is currently hard at work as the creator and voice of his latest brainchild. He has introduced a new type of American Action Figure Hero to web series viewers with Ricky Erlando, title character of “The Ricky Erlando Show”. Launched in September 2014, “The Ricky Erlando Show” follows the adventures of Ricky along with his sidekick pet Croc-A-Doodle (yes, a combination crocodile and poodle) as they travel the globe battling world injustice, villains, tackling socially conscious issues and picking up hot babes along the way. Ricky Erlando is the most American- American in America, one man fighting the new world order. Viewers follow Ricky’s personal sexcapades and general hell raising as he pokes fun at recent news stories, political figures and media organizations from his libertarian leaning perspective. If Bo and Luke Duke had a cousin who was placed in a corrupt foster care system at two years old and came out a bad ass with a van, endless supply of moon pies and a sex addiction, it would be Ricky Erlando. The weekly web series features episodes such as “Ricky Erlando vs the Prius Owner”, “Ricky Erlando Explains The Iraq War” and “World Cup Soccer” in which Ricky takes an actual skype viewer question and answers in only a way that Ricky can. Follow Ricky Erlando and his adventures at

SPiFFY SQUiRREL is Nashville’s only truly independent, underground professional weekly alt comedy show. Featuring touring comedians from all corners of the earth, plus outstanding local regulars who are worth paying attention to. Sundays at 6:30pm at The East Room for just $5 cover. Produced and hosted by Nashville’s Chad Riden.
