Billy Wayne Davis: Live at Third Man Records (12″ VINYL) was recorded 5/17/2016 during the Wild West Comedy Festival and is available for pre-order NOW at ThirdManStore.com. From Third Man Records:
“You don’t need to be from the South to understand Billy Wayne Davis’ particular brand of cutting humor, but being the Nashvillians we are (both transplanted and native), this up-and-comer is one of our favorite used-to-be local (and soon-to-go-global) stand-up comedians. Davis has gone from surprising crowds at the comedy club down the road with his “sharp-tongued-twang,” to conquering the alt comedy scene of Seattle, to hangin’ with Marc Maron, opening for Sturgill Simpson, winning over millions on Last Comic Standing, starring in a Morgan Spurlock produced documentary about Freedom, and working with the likes of Greg Giraldo, Louis CK, and Mitch Hedberg along the way.
Davis, now living in Los Angeles, headed back to Nashville while on tour last Spring and left the Blue Room audience in stitches. Third Man Records is thrilled to relive the night and share the comedic stylings Tennessee’s much-missed “small-town-smart-mouth” with the masses, adding another catalog number to what is becoming a pretty formidable collection of comedy records, including offerings from Reggie Watts, Rory Scovel, Aziz Ansari, Bill Burr, Conan O’Brien, Neil Hamburger, and more.
The Billy Wayne Davis Live at Third Man Records 12″ LP comes with a download code for a video of Davis’ complete set.”

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.
