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

Nashville StandUp’s “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” world record attempt is coming up SOON: April 12-19, 2015 during the Wild West Comedy Festival at The East Room in Nashville, TN. Right now there are less than 40 hours left to get early bird prices on tickets & stuff from our IndieGoGo campaign.

First: THANK YOU to everybody who has already donated here or at our fundraiser show at Zanies or in person or online at NashvilleStandUp.com! The money that has already been delivered by IndieGoGo is being put to good use. If you haven’t donated yet, go right ahead with confidence. We have signed a contract with Guinness and this IS happening!

Also, THIS IS GREAT: a group of donors (we’re not at liberty to announce who yet) have pledged to pay whatever expenses we have that are not paid for by this crowd-funding campaign. Even if somehow THAT fell through (extremely unlikely), NASHVILLE STANDUP will pick up the rest of the bills itself out of pocket & hope to make the money back later in merch & ticket sales.

Comics: we’re currently booking time slots on the big show. Our list of comedians already scheduled to appear includes Nate Bargatze, Ralphie May, Billy Wayne Davis and many, many more. If you haven’t yet reserved your spot, GET ON IT. Time is running out. Before you pledge, MAKE SURE YOU QUALIFY! In case you missed our previous update, 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.”

This means that before we can allow you to perform, you must give us a list of qualifying professional dates / shows. Sorry, slackers. Maybe next year.

We’re all very excited about this show & we’re glad you are too. Oh yeah, we’re calling it: BROKEN RECORD Comedy Show. Don’t skip it.

Nashville StandUp is a 509(a)(2) Public Charity with a mission to cultivate and promote middle Tennessee’s growing stand-up comedy scene and the Nashville-based comedians that help make it a success. Check your qualified income tax professional about the tax deductible status of your charitable donation.

Billy Wayne was featured as one of “10 COMEDIANS EVERY FAN OF COMEDY SHOULD KNOW” on Playboy.com today! (it’s safe for work). They say, “Don’t let the name or thick southern accent fool you, Billy Wayne Davis ain’t your run-of-the-mill good ole boy. Having toured the country for the better part of the last decade, Davis has become one of the funniest observers of humankind in the country and has perfected his entertaining blend of the clever, the cutting and the absurd.”

Come see him live tonight.

Billy Wayne Davis is the thinking man’s hillbilly. With a combination of subtle, disarming intelligence and an unmistakable comfort on stage, he has the rare ability to win over every kind of comedy audience imaginable. After making a name for himself in his homeland of Nashville, TN, he has gone on to perform in virtually every corner of the United States, from the deep south to the “alternative comedy” hotbed of Seatte, WA, which he now calls home. Billy Wayne’s comedy really has no discernible category. He can be personal, shocking, political and absurd, but his ability to form an instant connection with audiences allows him to get away with anything and everything. For Billy Wayne Davis, no subject matter is off limits because there is nothing he can’t make funny with his trademark drawl and easy charm.
