Chad Riden has appeared on “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show”, ABC’s “Nashville,” and is featured on an episode of CMT-Canada’s “Mississippi Snake Grabbers.”
Riden’s comedy is about his chaotic reality. He has weathered bankruptcy, divorce and foreclosure, launched a poultry farm, co-produced and headlined the Guinness World Records breaking #BrokenRecordShow, and made an unsuccessful run for mayor of Nashville. Riden tells self-incriminating stories that embarrass his daughter and make everybody else think he’s a weirdo. He lives in East Nashville with two flying squirrels and a turtle.
“Chad’s a good guy. He’s been through a rough divorce and his heart is heavy; he’s got a burden. That burden makes him funny.” – Marc Maron, WTF episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal,” on page 175.
“His observations on the domestic sphere teeter amiably on the edge.” – The Nashville Scene
Over the course of a weekend in February 2011, Doug Stanhope called Chad Riden “wicked funny” once, “fucking brilliant” twice, and “stupid” only one time.
