Comedy Showcase Fights Racism Through Laughter

The Most RACES Show on Earth! Comes to Nashville, TN for One Night Only!
Friday, Oct.5, 2012 – Tickets on Sale Now!

Racial stereotypes, ethnic clichés and culture differences
will be at the forefront on October 5 as the Bongo After Hours Theatre hosts one of North
America’s most entertaining multicultural comedic showcases, The Most RACES Show on
Earth! (MRSOE!).

MRSOE! is a stand-up comedy show that examines racial and ethnic differences through the
lens of laughter. After selling out numerous venues in Canada and the United States since 2005,
MRSOE! is embarking on its first tour across the southeastern U.S. The show in Nashville is one
of 16 stops.

“The Most RACES Show on Earth! helps us to better understand one another. The barriers
between cultures cannot be easily dissolved; sometimes it’s actually the shock value of a lot of
the jokes that inspires people to start thinking. The more we realize our differences, the more we
are the same because we all laugh at the same things,” says Neil Bansil, creator and producer of
MRSOE!.

This show features a rotating cast of seven funny and edgy comedians from various ethnicities
including: Noah Gardenswartz (Jewish-American – 2012 Bay Area Comedy Competition Semi-
finalist); Mia Jackson (African-American – Writer for 2011 BET Soul Train Awards); Viet Huynh
(Vietnamese-American – 2009 Southeastern Funny People Search Winner); Daniel Tirado
(Polish-Peruvian – Montreal’s Just for Laughs), Rob Haze (African-American – Laughing Skull
Lounge); Trixx (Ghanaian-Canadian – NY Comedy Festival); and Neil Bansil (Filipino-Canadian-
American – Creator MRSOE!).

The Most RACES Show on Earth! takes place on Friday, October 5, at 8:30 p.m., at the Bongo
After Hours Theatre. Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. A portion of the proceeds
from each show will go towards the YWCA Stand Against Racism initiative. For tickets, visit
www.mrsoe.com or visit the Bongo After Hours Theatre at 2007 Belmont Ave.

Cody Marley’s “Comedy Night In America” videos survey Nashville’s comedy scene

Cody Marley

Cody Marley
Cody Marley
Comedian and writer Cody Marley has been making people laugh — and occasionally, back away slowly — for two decades. A joke-writer for, among others, Jay Leno, Cody’s comedy has been featured in The New York Times, Time magazine and USA Today, prime-time and late night TV and has been broadcast in every major radio market in America.

As a stand-up, Cody is a favorite on the underground and alternative scene, mixing topical takes with bizarre observations that combine the pose of a hipster with the work ethic of a ranch hand — because Cody has been both. Long a “comic’s comic”, Cody has performed at the Bonnaroo Music Festival (or “that hippie thing,” as your grandmother calls it), and has worked with Mitch Hedberg, Brian Regan and Larry the Cable Guy, among many others.

If you caught a local comedy show in Nashville the week of March 4-10, 2012, you may have seen Cody on stage telling jokes and in the back of the room laughing and filming some video. Over the course of that week, he attempted to go to every comedy night in Nashville. He produced a series of corresponding shorts documenting the shows he visited and posted them online. NashvilleStandUp asked Mr. Marley why and this is what he said:

“I’m doing this because it’s fun. I started doing comedy in Nashville years ago and its growth interests me. I think it mirrors the city’s expansion and what’s going on in most other towns. Nashville has 10-12 comedy nights a week and, I’m guessing, a few hundred comics. I enjoy checking out the talent and the scene and staying connected. I travel a lot so I’ll probably do this in other towns. It’s not just in LA, Chicago or NYC anymore. With the Internet, like it has in music, I think you’re going to see a lot of garage band-like comics emerge, develop a following and make a solid living. Nashville? I expect somebody to bust out big here in the next 2 years. Who will it be? Let’s watch.”

Here are Cody’s videos:

March 4th: SmartyPants NerdCore Stand-Up Comedy Show at Steve’s (every Sunday)
“The first stop was tonight at Steve’s in East Nashville. Funny cats. Big fun.”

March 6th: Spanky’s & Bongo Java
“Tonight I hit Spanky’s (Antioch) and Bongo Java (Belmont). I went up
first at Spanky’s (8:30) and last at Bonjo Java (10:15). Both, a lot
of fun and both had about 15 comics apiece. Oh, except for me, all
different comics. They didn’t shuttle back and forth.”

March 7th: La Hacienda & Springwater
“Tonight I hit La Hacienda (Old Hickory) and the venerable Springwater
(Centennial Park). I went up first at La Hacienda (8:30) and at 10:40
at The Springwater. La Hacienda had about 8 comics and The
Springwater, a ton. Quite a hoot.”

March 8th: The Basement
“Tonight I hit The Basement and saw 2 music/comedy acts The Wolf
Sisters, The Gay Republicans and the comics of Corporate Juggernaut
(3).”

https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=297670043633472

March 9th: Kimbros
“Tonight I hit Kimbros in Franklin. 8-10 comics bringing the jest.”
https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=298322100234933

March 10th: The Pond
“Tonight, I hit The Pond in Franklin. Watch and enjoy the magic.”
