II - May 15-23, 2016

Nashville StandUp Announces Comedians Scheduled To Perform On World Record Breaking #BrokenRecordShow

Beginning at 5am on Sunday, May 15th, 2016, Nashville StandUp will attempt to top it’s own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” at The East Room in Nashville, TN.. by five minutes.

Nashville StandUp’s first “Broken Record Comedy Show” ran non-stop at The East Room in Nashville, Tennessee, beginning Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 12:04pm with DJ Buckley and ending Monday April 20 at 4:20am with Chad Riden, setting the new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title at 184 hours, 16 minutes. The show featured about 100 comedians, including surprise celebrity guest sets from Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre, Rory Scovel, Nate Bargatze, Luis J. Gomez, Keith Alberstadt, Jon Reep, Ahmed Ahmed and Killer Beaz.

The previous 80-hour record had been held by the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, CA, for a show which ran December 6-9, 2010. By more than doubling the previous record, #BrokenRecordShow’s non-stop stand up comedy marathon put Nashville into the record books of comedy history. A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title Adjudicator was on site to certify the attempt as an official world record on Wednesday April 15th at 8pm.. but the show continued until Monday, April 20th, at 4:20am. Hundreds of people attended the event and even more watched online. The successful attempt was covered by local and international media outlets, mentioned in countless social media posts and has already become a thing of legend.

#BrokenRecordShow vol. 2’s non-stop 8+ day schedule will feature showcases, feature-length, and headliner-length sets, and will include surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune AND infamy and misfortune. GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ rules say: “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.”

The comedians currently scheduled to perform May 15-23 at The East Room as part of #BrokenRecordShow vol. 2 are: Ian Abramson, Ahmed Ahmed, Sarah Albritton, Nick Alexander, Chuck Anderson, Sammy Anzer, Emma Arnold, Mo Arora, Jeffrey Baldinger, Nate Bargatze, Brian Bates, Lila Mae Bear, Mark Bentley, Mary Jay Berger, Keith Bergman, Dj Buckley, Jamie Carbone, Josh Carter, Jesse Case, Cliff Cash, Andre Churchwell, Katrina Coleman, Ashley Corby, Wes Corwin, Joe Coughlin, Brian Covington, Jonathan Craig, Chris Crofton, Patrick Cunningham, Bryce Damuth, Billy Wayne Davis, Joe Derosa, Patrick Devine, David Dial, Dwayne Duke, Scott Eason, Brad Edwards, Ku Egenti, Benny Elbows, Max Fine, Gary Fletcher, Fray Forde, Megan Gailey, John Gibson, Kyle Gillis, Doug Gillon, Andrew Ginsburg, Carter Glascock, Derek Graff, Ross Hamilton, Michael Hampton, Jordan Hargis, Rob Haynes, Jake Head, Brad Hinderliter, Hannah Hogan, Stewart Huff, Brandon Ijames, Josh Inocalla, Jordan Jensen, Katherine Jessup, Myq Kaplan, Joe Kelley, Ryan King, Ben Kronberg, Josh Lewis, Danny Limor, Kristen Lundberg, Todd Masterson, Josh Mclane, Monty Mitchell, Narado Moore, Leslie Nash, Tim Northern, Tommy Oler, Sean Parrott, Alex Poloskey, Zach Pugh, Curtis Rambo, Jc Ratliff, Jon Reep, Mark Reilly, Chris Rex, Topher Riddle, Chad Riden, Hunter Roberts, Rik Roberts, Dave Ross, Dick Satori, Brad Sativa, Ben Sawyer, Brent Schmidt, Rory Scovel, Kate Sedgwick, Jim Seward, Bo Shuster, Tom Simmons, Dusty Slay, Jen O’neil Smith, Kate Spellman, Eric Steele, Owen Straw, Daniel Swinney, Geoff Tate, Matthew Tate, Sara Tiana, Kent Tucker, Josh Wagner, Patrick Wallace, Aaron Weber, Dan Whitehurst, Danny Whitson, Joel Wilson, Mike Winfield, Will Wininger, Josh Wolf, Pete Wolynec, Dave Yates and many surprise celebrity drop-ins, which will be announced on Nashville StandUp & #BrokenRecordShow’s social media accounts.

The brainchild of Nashville-based comic DJ Buckley, this record-breaking show is being co-produced by Nashville-based comedian Chad Riden, The East Room’s Ben Jones and comedian Mary Jay Berger.

“This show is the best thing I’ve ever done, and if it never stopped I’d be fine with it,” says D.J. Buckley. “Last year, I got to see a lot of funny comics and great people come together to work on something none of us could have accomplished by ourselves, and I think this year will be even better since we actually know what we’re doing this time.”

“It’s the greatest dumbest thing we’ve ever done twice,” Chad Riden smirks. “If you asked me that old guidance counselor question, ‘if you could do anything in the world, what would you rather be doing right now?’ the answer would always be ‘a stand-up comedy show.’ We figured out a way to be able to do comedy all day, every day and it was a dream come true. I’ve missed the first show ever since we ended it and I’m really excited to be doing it again. Maybe this time we just won’t ever stop. Nobody can ever beat our record if our show never ends.”

“Breaking our own record this year is an attempt to further show the legitimacy of the comics in Nashville,” says The East Room’s Ben Jones. “To break the record by a mere 5 minutes is to compete with the absurdity of last year’s successful attempt to more than double the previous record.”

Tickets are on sale now. One Day Passes are available for $10, All Access Passes, allowing comedy fans to come and go throughout the entire show all week long are available for $60. VIP Passes allowing fans access to reserved seating and include an official show t-shirt and letterpress show print are also available for $100.

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing stand up comedy scene by supporting the Nashville-based comedians that help make the Music City a great place to see live comedy.

She appeared on recent episodes of ABC’s “Manhattan Love Story,” Netflix’s hit “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” and the NBC Playground competition entry “Broker.” She will also be seen in Netflix’s new sketch series “The Characters.”

Mo Alexander with Brad Edwards, Brad Sativa & Joe Kelley at Spiffy Squirrel stand-up comedy show at The East Room 4/10/2016.

Standing in the face of conventional comedy for the last 20 years, Mo Alexander has pushed all boundaries of what it means to laugh at a Comedy Show. The days of a “Fun Night Out” have now been replaced with “Oh, god it hurts! I think I peed a little!”. To say that Mo is funny, is like saying that Michelangelo was a good painter. Taking all of life’s absurdities and creating a night of hysterical laughter is why Mo Alexander is one this industries unknown Greats. Aspiring to be a Comedian since a very young age, Mo takes a lifetime of experience and insight and transforms them into some of the most ingenious laugh riots you will ever experience in your life. Not for the faint of heart, or mind, intelligent and hard hitting are two terms that best describe what everyone that has ever been to a Mo Alexander Show will experience. In other words, if you don’t laugh your ass off at his show, you’re probably dead.

Derek Sheen at Spiffy Squirrel stand-up comedy show at The East Room 4/3/2016.

Derek Sheen is a cuddly mess of insecurities, a gifted, one of a kind, storyteller. He’s quickly becoming a favorite among comedy fans all over the globe! He’s toured with Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Janeane Garofolo and Rory Scovel! His debut album “Holy Drivel” was recorded by iconic metal producer Matt Bayles (Minus the Bear, Mastodon, Isis) and is available from Rooftopcomedy.com.

NEW ALBUM is coming soon from Stand Up! Records.

PASTE Magazine: “Derek Sheen has the uncanny ability to take mundane events and turn them into over-the-top comedy. His comedy shows have delighted audiences, and now he has finally recorded one of his shows for the world to hear.

“Dylan Gadino at Laughspin Magazine: “Equal parts-playful-and-absurd approach to self-deprecating comedy.”

Nate Rankin of America’s Comedy: “Derek Sheen not only recites a recipe for buttermilk biscuits within his stand-up routine…but he also constructs a comedy hour that’s a bigger guilty pleasure than arteries stuffed with butter and cookie dough.”

Comedy-Reviews.com:”With Sheen, you never quite know what’s around the corner and that’s a good thing. He has a passion that is reminiscent of Lewis Black and his references will keep you on your toes.”

Daniel Berkowitz of TheSpitTake-Comedynews.org: “When Sheen’s at his best, he’s firing everything off with nuanced diction and rhythmical precision. He develops a Carlin-esque pace to his speech that only serves to amplify the already-high level of laughs.”

Help document the greatest dumbest thing we’ve ever done twice on film https://nashvillestandup.com/help-document-the-greatest-dumbest-thing-weve-ever-done-twice-on-film/ https://nashvillestandup.com/help-document-the-greatest-dumbest-thing-weve-ever-done-twice-on-film/#respond Fri, 25 Mar 2016 16:11:51 +0000 http://nashvillestandup.com/?p=4126 ]]> help produce a #BrokenRecordShow documentary film

The only thing more pointless and silly than more than DOUBLING the world record for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS,” would be breaking your own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title (184 hours, 16 minutes) by just five minutes. Guess what we’re doing?

Last year’s #BrokenRecordShow was SO FUN. We shot video of the entire show to meet GUINNESS’ evidence requirements but we really wish we could have filmed a documentary about what we were doing. We have all the resources we need to successfully run this 8-day long show and beat our own world record, but we don’t have the equipment we need to film a behind the scenes documentary about doing this very dumb thing (again). That’s where you come in.

We’ve launched an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign to pay for the minimum equipment we need to film a documentary.

What We Need

  • Three GoPro Hero4 cameras (3 x $329 = $987)
  • Six 64GB SD cards (6 x $24 = $144)
  • One USB hard drive ($125)
  • If we raise more money than the bare minimum we need ($1256 + 10% to cover the fees IndieGoGo will take out), maybe we’ll be able to buy a MacBook Pro to edit this thing on and be able to compensate people who help us out.

What You’ll Get
We appreciate your help. Here’s some ways we’ll thank you:

  • VIP all-access passes to the show May 15-23 at The East Room in Nashville, TN – watch hundreds of comics driven to madness by a relentless amount of comedy as many times as you want.
  • Tickets to an Exclusive Advance Screening of the finished film
  • Digital download of the finished film
  • YOUR NAME in the credits of the film / on IMDB
  • Weird other stuff?

Risks & Challenges
We HAVE done this before. That said, God is cruel and there are several ways he could possibly smote us:

  • The East Room is destroyed by terrorists who hate freedom and comedy.
  • What if we DON’T break our own world record? We’ll look pretty dumb, won’t we? The big difference is we first broke the world record after 80 hours and this time it’s going to take us 184 hours and 16 minutes to do it. That’s many more opportunities to screw this up.

Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:

  • Please tell your friends on social media!
  • Volunteer to help! Last year we had over 60 volunteers and we couldn’t have done the show without them.
  • SHOW UP at the show! We need butts in the seats. Everybody will be much more comfortable with a full audience.
  • Join the NashvilleStandUp.com mailing list & follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube.
  • Steal money from some richie rich person who doesn’t deserve what they have and THEN contribute with THAT money.
  • Wherever you live, go find the local comedy shows and comedians and support them. The super famous incredible “breakout” comics of 10-15 years from now are trying standup comedy for the first time ever this week and you could be there to see them.

Thank you very much for donating and we hope to see you at the show!

NashvilleStandUp.com's #BrokenRecordShow vol. 2 - May 15-23, 2016 at The East Room in Nashville, Tennessee. 8+ days of 24-hours-a-day non-stop stand-up comedy.

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album THE MAN UPSTAIRS is a bittersweet love letter to a vanishing world. Produced by legendary folk-rock svengali Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake) the album was critically acclaimed by MOJO, UNCUT and THE QUIETUS.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone

“As a performer, he’s as much a wandering bard as a rock star.” – The Believer

Sean Rouse

Sean Rouse was one of the breakout stars with Dave Attell, Greg Giraldo, and Dane Cook on Comedy Central’s Insomniac Tour. He was in Men in Black II and also on HBO’s critically acclaimed Down & Dirty with Jim Norton. He’s irreverent, even though he looks innocent. He’s likeable even though he’s highly obscene. But most of all, he’s extremely entertaining.

“Rouse is one of the best comics working on this planet. Dark, evil, extraordinarily smart, relevant and adorable” – Doug Stanhope.

Junior Stopka

There’s nothing more embarrassing than writing your own biography for your website. Should I try to make it funny? Just list my credits? Tell a coming of age story of how I dreamed to be a comedian as a kid, then I got hit by a car, my dad died, and I started telling poop jokes and it all changed? I don’t know. I’m no storyteller, so I’ll just get straight to the point. I’m from Chicago and I started comedy in 2005. I bombed. Boy, did I bomb a lot, and still do. After endless times going to open-mics and local stand-ups shows, I caught a break when I was a regular at the defunct Lakeshore Theater opening for amazing comedians such as Doug Stanhope, Jim Jeffries, and Al Madrigal. Stanhope decided to take me on tour with him, and he bragged about how much little he paid me, but I thought I was rich at the end of it. I’ve never even been in a hotel room before and had to learn how to pack a suitcase. Yeah, I’m that out of touch. After I got off tour with Stanhope, I got a huge break when Dave Attell and Comedy Central invited me to perform on Comedy Central’s Underground with Dave Attell. Since then, I was invited to perform on Last Comic Standing Season 2015, and Norm MacDonald even gave me some of the best praise I’ve ever had during my career.

Andy Andrist

When he’s not on the road, his free time is spent marathon running, streamlining vigilante justice, and enriching the lives of farm animals. He also comes from a long and triumphant line of Freemasons, who founded the fair city of Eugene, Oregon. Although he is 1/32 African American, he made the choice long ago to forgo racial material in his repertoire. This triple threat will soon be a licensed real estate salesman, in the hopes of parlaying his selling adventures into comedic gold. Favorite color is yellow.

The March Of The Gibby Tour: Darik Santos (America’s Got Talent) w/ Brian Barganier (Comedy Central, adult swim, Mtv) & Colin Cook at Spiffy Squirrel comedy show at The East Room 3/6/2016.

Darik Santos, a native of Providence, lives in Windsor Locks, Connecticut with his girlfriend’s family. Until recently, he has been doing stand-up comedy on the side from his job, until he was laid off from that job. “I was a security guard. I patrolled an empty parking lot. They gave me a flashlight and it didn’t even work,” he said.

Now he’s doing just stand-up. He’s performed at Strange Brew in Norwich, Brew Ha Ha in Hartford, Comics at Foxwoods, the Joker’s Wild in New Haven and other area bars and nightclubs. Santos got his start in stand-up doing goofy things on stage. “I would do karaoke or sleep on stage. … I would go up and take my shoe off and then take my sock off and then blow my nose in my sock and then put the sock back on,” he said. “They thought I was just this crazy person.”

When he moved into more verbal stand-up, he favored puns. “Fozzy Bear [from ‘The Muppet Show’] was the first comedian I ever saw and is still my favorite comedian ever,” he said. “I wanted to write jokes like that … really short, quick one liners that keep people interested.” He calls himself a “commodian,” because he tells a lot of toilet jokes. “I’m feeling very flushed right now,” he said.

“America’s Got Talent” producers didn’t seek Darik out, he sought them out. “My mother called me and said ‘they’re doing auditions in Providence, you should go.’ So I called out of work and went. I waited in line for six hours,” he said. “I was delirious. I had the flu. I went anyway. I don’t know what they saw in me but somehow they liked me.

For years now Brian Barganier has been tearing up the comedy scenes in New York City and now is headlining around the country. The Connecticut native’s style runs comfortably on the edge of conventional and alternative comedy. He is described mostly as what can only be called “planned carelessness,” Although he is seen as being morbid or crude sometimes, Brian always manages to pull a 180 and find the funny in topics that sometimes seem untouchable. He has a full length CD and DVD entitled “Jokes Intended for Crickets”

Perfect Timing comedy game show at Zanies 2/24 https://nashvillestandup.com/perfect-timing-comedy-game-show-at-zanies-224/ https://nashvillestandup.com/perfect-timing-comedy-game-show-at-zanies-224/#respond Mon, 22 Feb 2016 01:39:13 +0000 http://nashvillestandup.com/?p=4037 ]]> Perfect Timing at Zanies 2/24/2016

Perfect Timing is a monthly comedy game show that takes place on the last Wednesday of the month at Zanies Comedy Club in Nashville. The show is anchored by host Ben Sawyer (@SawyerComedy), with co-hosting/music by Sean Parrott (@SeanParrott) and Gary Fletcher (@GaryisYou) of the Grey Grays. Combining elements of classic game shows with comedic and local content, the show pits three teams of two against each other to win prizes and glory in front of a live audience. Unlike most game shows, however, PT makes the audience members part of the show by offering them the chance to vote on round winners and answer questions on stage!

For February, we have comics Brian Covington & Monty Mitchell going up against two of Nashville’s mightiest fitness outfits- Krank Nashville and Crave: The Fitness Factory!

Doors Open at 6:30; show starts at 7:30. Advanced tickets can be purchased at zanies.com or by calling Zanies’ Box Office at 615-269-0221. Tickets are $10.

More Information go to SawyerComedy.com/PerfectTiming. To keep up with us, follow Perfect timing on Twitter (@PTGameShow), or contact us at PerfectTimingShow@gmail.com.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last month, Perfect Timing: A Live Comedy Game Show at Zanies Nashville was a blast. The comics (Joshua Wagner & Dusty Slay) were hilarious and Ben Sawyer did a great job hosting the thing, as always. The Grey Grays were fantastic — Sean Parrott & Gary Fletcher absolutely made the show, as far as I’m concerned. Their comments just killed me. SO FUN. Next one is tomorrow w/ Brian B Cov Covington & Monty Mitchell vs. some meat-heads from a gym somewhere. Don’t miss it.

‘Third Coast Comedy Club’ to open in Marathon Village https://nashvillestandup.com/third-coast-comedy-club-to-open-in-marathon-village/ https://nashvillestandup.com/third-coast-comedy-club-to-open-in-marathon-village/#respond Fri, 12 Feb 2016 19:55:29 +0000 http://nashvillestandup.com/?p=3977 ]]> Third Coast Comedy Club announcement

Last night 30-40 Nashville comedy show runners were invited to meet up at Edley’s BBQ for a 15 minute meeting about “a huge and exciting comedy project.” Improvisers Luke Watson (Founder/Artistic Director of LOL Nashville) and Scott Field (Co-founder of Improv Nashville/Artistic Director of Music City Improv) kept it short and sweet. Noting how difficult it is to book a venue to do local comedy shows on Fridays and Saturdays, they announced that they’re opening their own venue. Having concluded their year-long search last week for a permanent space, they have partnered to open a comedy club that will serve all comedic art forms: sketch, improv, stand-up, comedic plays, etc.

The Third Coast Comedy Club is taking over the former Imogene and Willie production space at 1310 Clinton Street in Marathon Village, a breeding ground for creatives of all media. The theater will serve as an outlet for the wealth of comedic talent in Nashville. The bar will serve as a community meeting place for locals and comics throughout the week.

Alongside the nightly programming and weekend Main Stage shows, the club will offer courses ranging from improvisation to sketch to stand-up for locals and tourists alike. Weekend Main Stage shows will be directed by Erica Elam, instructor & player with both The Second City (CHI/LA), iO (CHI/LA), The School at Steppenwolf (CHI), and the critically-acclaimed musical improv group, Baby Wants Candy.

Third Coast Comedy Club logoThe tag line on www.ThirdCoastComedy.club says, “NASHVILLE’S HOME FOR ALL THINGS COMEDY.” The first post on their new Facebook page says, “For too long local Nashville comics have been homeless. Today that all changes. Next month the Third Coast Comedy Club opens its doors, providing a home for all forms of comedy (sketch, improv, and stand-up). Our soft opening line-up in March will be followed by a grand opening in April, including the first season of the Third Coast Comedy Main Stage show. Nashville is no longer just the Music City anymore!”

Jim Seward & Friends at Spiffy Squirrel stand-up comedy show at The East Room 2/14/2016.

Jim Seward didn’t follow the normal route to the entertainment business, having served 22 years in the US military. But after spending time in Iraq and using humor to get through stressful situations and to relax his troops, Jim decided to try his hand at stand-up comedy. Walking into his first open mic, he was told by the host he had two and a half minutes to make people laugh. Much to his surprise, they laughed and he never looked back. The truth is, though, Jim shouldn’t be a comic. His parents never divorced. His wife loves him (we don’t know why either, but we know it isn’t for money), his kids are relatively well adjusted. He wasn’t bullied in school. He doesn’t need a therapist. He’s never even been to jail for Pete’s sake. But despite all these major disadvantages, Jim has overcome his doubts and fears of being normal and managed to make people laugh at the reality of everyday living. His quick wit, take on kids, marriage, military experiences, travel and his memories of dating in the 80s takes the audience on a non-stop ride of laughter . Jim has a versatile range of topics that make him ideal from anything to a comedy club to corporate work to a private show. He’s even performed in churches and not been struck by lightning.

Jim has appeared in several episodes of Wicked Attractions and on FBI Takedowns. He also can be seen as the cop in the country music video by Love and Theft, “Night That You’ll Never Forget.” He has performed with Tommy Davidson, Rich Vos, John Heffron, Jon Reep, Bobby Collins and many more.

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.

Cliff Cash comes from the religious and conservative south and adds a new twist to stand-up that you won’t soon forget. Finding absurdities in everyday culture, media, politics and dogma; Cash draws comparisons that others miss. Whether it’s through one of his characters or voices, an angry rant or a satirical rap song, Cliff will make you question what you accept as normal.

A rising star on the comedy circuit, Cash is quickly climbing the ranks. He is featuring all over the country with multiple sets and hours of material, being accepted to the Cape Fear Comedy Festival three years in a row, the Norfolk Comedy Festival and winning Port City’s Top Comic 2013, Comedy Zone’s Almost Famous competition 2013 and chosen as one of 30 semifinalists nationwide in Comedy Central’s UpNext competition/talent search.

Ashley Corby & Friends at Spiffy Squirrel stand-up comedy show at The East Room 1/24/2016.

Ashley Corby was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee where she developed her southern charm. She grew up in private schools and spent her childhood entertaining her friends at the expense of her teachers. When she wasn’t in detention or suspended from school, Ashley was failing miserably at every sport. Eventually she went to college and somewhere in between blackouts, earned a degree she has never used. After college, she continued to live one of her childhood dreams as a Hooters waitress where she entertained her friends with stories of her unsuccessful attempts at relationships. At the urging of her friends, Ashley began doing stand-up comedy. To this day, comedy is the longest relationship she has ever had and her parents are somewhat proud.

When Monty Mitchell takes those long lanky steps toward the stage, you soon discover that story-teller is very different. He takes your audience through a varied routine pushing them toward disbelief, shock, and appreciation for his comedic talents….all the while they are laughing hysterically at his stories. Monty can take stories ranging from a funeral visit, to a fast food drive-through experience, to a police officer’s traffic stop and make them stories you will never ever forget. By the time you get to the end of his show, you’ve heard (maybe more than you planned to) about his marriage, his son, his cat, and his latest trip to the low-rent strip bar.

Monty has been held hostage in the corporate world for years, and the comedy stage has been calling for him to perform. So perform he has across the nation, in bars, colleges, and on-stage. Monty’s unabashed enthusiasm and comedic style turns any event (and open-minded crowd) into a great night of comedy.
