Sick of Stupid Tour at Zanies 1/20/2016

“Sick of Stupid” is an intelligent, comedic look at all things southern. We believe that people are thirsty for an intelligent voice with a southern accent. “The South” is made up of Miami, Austin, Atlanta, The Research Triangle, New Orleans, Nashville and so many more wonderful, cultured, beautiful cities and those cities are full of intelligent, progressive young people who don’t want to grouped in with Duck Dynasty or Larry the Cable Guy. The south has somehow garnered a reputation that lumps us all into wearing camouflage and hating gay people. There exists a large portion of the population that doesn’t want to be lumped into those categories. Those folks are our demographic. We believe they will love what we have to say. We believe that the antithesis of the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” is something that hasn’t been done yet and the first people to do it successfully can expect a windfall. Intelligent southern comedy exists. We aren’t the first to do it. It is a genre but it is a genre and a concept without an owner. No one has claimed it. No one has mastered it successfully and no one has branded it or taken it to the mainstream and pop. We believe we can be the guys to do just that.

Here’s more info about the comics in the show:

Tom Simmons was born in New York and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He is married to the love of his life, Serena, for more than a decade. Together, they have a son named Owen. “We figured, that’s what we would be doing for the rest of our lives.” Before Owen’s birth in 2004, Tom and Serena toured the continent in their RV, devoted to perfecting Tom’s stage act and putting their relationship to the test. The Simmons now live in Greensboro, North Carolina, the “epicenter of comedy”, as Tom describes it with a huge grin. “We bought a house from the seventies, and there’s lots of work to do. All I need now is a husband.”

Stewart Huff was born in Campbellsville, Kentucky and grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He has been performing comedy for over 15 years, beginning when he decided to drop out of college to become a writer. Currently touring theatres, comedy clubs and special events across the country, Huff reaches past the norm for his genuine — and genuinely unexpected — comedy. His knack for embracing the foibles of humanity and his refreshing originality make him as likeable as he is hilarious. A storyteller at heart, Huff continues to amaze with his clever material and personal wit.

Huff has performed in comedy clubs nationally and internationally, including the Improv in Los Angeles and New York, the Punchline in Atlanta and the Funny Bone in Omaha, as well as countless others.

A finalist in the 2006 Boston Comedy Festival, Huff was also invited to perform in the HBO Las Vegas Festival, where his act can be viewed on pay-per-view. He’s been featured in/on the Wall Street Journal, NPR and Nuvo and invited to festivals and conventions all over the country.

He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with his girlfriend. There he drops off the various items he collects while on the road, including an antique barber chair, countless vintage photographs, and an extensive collection of LP’s. She likes this.

He is featured in the documentary Road Comics: Big Work on Small Stages, which was released in Fall 2009.

Sean Parrott’s “Summertime (Featuring Swagnum P.I.)” video is the greatest thing on the Internet

Sean Parrott, July 2014
Sean Parrott, July 2014

Nashville-based comedian & musician Sean Parrott is so incredibly funny and talented and wonderful, it’s just ridiculous. His new album “THE DTH OVE LOF” is a perfect example of that. Also, the video for “Summertime (Featuring Swagnum P.I.)” is (without question) the greatest thing on the internet. Stop everything and watch the video right now:

Sean Parrott: THE DTH OVE LOF album cover
Sean Parrott: THE DTH OVE LOF album cover

THE DTH OVE LOF” is a fun and funny indie pop concept album about love, loss, and a battle to save the Earth! The album is available now on BandCamp, Spotify, iTunes and all of the other places, too. Buy it now OR, register to win a FREE copy of it right here! (Well, at the bottom of this post, actually.)

Parrott has previously released “Songs About Sad Stuff And Snacks” in December 2012, and several tracks throughout 2013, but this new album is more of a follow-up to his 2010 “Infinite Superdoom” release as “The Dead Dead.”

Parrot’s 2010 release – “The Dead Dead: Infinite Superdoom”

THE DTH OVE LOF” cover art (by Nashville-based comedian / artist Bryce Damuth) shares the same color scheme as The Dead Dead album and the same sword. Sean says he conceived the new album, “..as part of a continuing story. Infinite Superdoom is about two dudes kinda wandering and battling and THE DTH OVE LOF happens after (or before) that (they have a time machine.) I’m not really sure what happened in between…or what the next album will be about (maybe more time travel stuff?).”

Watching the video for “Summertime” feels like traveling back in time to the glory days of super fun music videos. Sean says Director David Shamban “was really into the doll idea and said it was going to be awesome so I let him go buckwild. And, based on the reactions, it seems to have turned out well.”

Shamban says, “Sean’s song pretty much takes the objectification of women to a new level and what better way to express that than with actual objects. It was a tough task envisioning a video for Sean’s heartfelt ballad of breast awareness. I didn’t want to be heavy handed with the message. I came up with the concept to show characters behaving very badly in a spring break type scenario through the medium of Barbie scale dolls. I think that was good choice considering Barbie dolls anatomy are totally fucked. My motto for the video was ‘Make sure your attention deficited inner 14 year old is happy with this.’ I wanted to make a video that a modern feminist could watch and say “Hey, that’s pretty disgusting, good job!” Seeing as my girlfriend doesn’t hate me after making this video, I must have done something right.”

Within one week of being posted on Sean Parrott’s YouTube channel, the video had over 5000 views. “I’m trying to figure out which song to make a video of next,” Sean says. “But most of the others aren’t as specifically jokey. The problem is trying to scrape money together to pay someone to make another video that looks good.”

Help fund more creativity from Mr. Parrott by buying “THE DTH OVE LOF” on BandCamp or iTunes. Broke? You can register to win a FREE cd from Sean right here. Before you do that, don’t forget to follow Sean Parrott on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube.
