a couple videos from the archives now on Funny or Die

Over the weekend we’ve been digging through the archives and found a couple better quality copies of sketch videos from Nashville comedians that were previously posted on MangyDog.com and YouTube at lower resolution. We’ve uploaded the cleaner versions to Funny Or Die for your enjoyment:

Snow in Nashville!

It’s snowing, Nashville! HOLY CRAP! Someone call off school and rush out to Kroger! While we await our inevitable, icy deaths.. let’s look back at a couple videos produced the last time it snowed in town.

First, Tom Green got into a snowball fight outside of Zanies (we can’t embed that one).

Recap: Jan. 7, 2009 “Dive Laughing” Open Mic @ Springwater

There’s always an element of danger with comedy shows at the Springwater Supper Club. Several things can be rough: the crowds, the language, and finding a seat in the packed house. You never know what’s going to happen, but you can bet it’ll be funny and exciting.
Brad Edwards hosted this month’s edition of the “Dive Laughing” open mic comedy night on Wednesday. The place was smoky as always.. there was a dog named Zeus wandering around.. and the crowd was ready to laugh. Corey Reppond has put together a video sampler of jokes from the night which is now available on YouTube and embedded below.

The “Dive Laughing” open mic happens the first Wednesday of every month, with the next show falling on February 4th at 9pm. All are welcome.
