BROKEN RECORD COMEDY SHOW -NashvilleStandUp.com's World Record Attempt: "LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” April 12-19, 2015 at The East Room.

You guys, WE’RE DOING IT.

Beginning noon April 12th, Nashville StandUp began our attempt to take the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” at The East Room in Nashville, TN.

NewsChannel5 talking to Monty MitchellAs I type this it’s early afternoon Tuesday April 14th. That means the BROKEN RECORD COMEDY SHOW has been going for over 48 hours so far. Unbelievable. We’re having such a great time.
NewsChannel5 talking to Chad Riden
NewsChannel 5 did interviews and shot show footage around noon and a live shot during their 5pm show, helping spread the word.

Jessica WatkinsLast night was incredible. Jessica Watkins is an East Nashville native, now living in NYC and she did an hour telling stories from her walk across the country when she did comedy and avoided being murdered while filming her documentary “Burning Daylight.” Nate BargatzeLouis J Gomez was absolutely hilarious and delightful as he explained how his baby is fifteen times cuter than yours. The house was PACKED for home town boy who done good, Nate Bargatze. A lot of Wild West Comedy Festival people and Zanies staffers supplemented the huge, huge crowd who squeezed in to see Nate. It was pretty awesome.

Ahmed AhmedOur good friend KILLER BEAZ dropped in and did a 30-minute surprise set, followed by Nashville favorite Mike James. Ahmed Ahmed (TBS’ Sullivan & Son, The Axis of Evil Comedy Tour) dropped in to do a fun set where he hilariously woke up a sleepy audience member in the front row. Ahmed is an absolute beast on stage and any comic would hate to have to follow him, but that didn’t stop Zanies co-owner Andrew Dorfman who jumped up to do a very funny set.

Andrew DorfmanThis show is the greatest, dumbest thing we’ve ever done, but it’s also been a lot of fun and cathartic. Nashville comedy has really pulled together to make this a reality. The comics deemed as being ‘professional’ according to GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™’ guidelines (20 paid credits in a comedy club, theatre or bar and at least one year’s experience since their first paid gig), have done shows at all hours of the day and night.

DJ Buckley has not left the building since Sunday morning at 8:30 am. Chad Riden has only left for 2-3 hours each day to sleep and shower at home and run his daughter to and from school. Several comics have slept in The East Room’s fancy new comics’ lounge in the balcony. Many have been here all night. Several Zanies servers spent the entire night helping us make sure we had over 10 people in the audience at all times, saying, “we’re all in this together.” We truly are. The East Room staff, the fans, the volunteers, the comics. It’s really been touching watching everybody work to make this stupid thing happen. THANK YOU.

If you’re in town, STOP IN! ANY TIME. We’re here. If you can’t come by, photographer Jamie Hernendez is documenting the show on her Instagram account. She does incredible work and is here at all hours doing a fantastic job taking photos and posting updates on twitter. We’re also streaming video of the event on YouTube and on our special #BrokenRecordShow site. Go now to see the lineup for the rest of our schedule this week.

ALSO: the BROKEN RECORD Comedy Show is honoring ANY Wild West Comedy Festival tickets as valid tickets for our world record breaking show at The East Room. Any and all WWCF ticket holders need only flash their WWCF2015 ticket stub or laminate to be granted free admission to The East Room with no additional purchase necessary. Hope to see you at the show!

Rocky Dale Davis was born in a one red light town in Brookwood, AL. He started comedy at 19 in front of 3 people at 1am in the morning. Although it was a terrible situation he did well and knew this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Bruce Ayers made him a regular at the Comedy Club Stardome.

He loved comedy in Alabama but later moved to Atlanta to get more stage time. He flourished being on stage every night and began working every room in the city. From the Uptown Comedy Corner to the Atlanta Punchline. He has opened for Tommy Davidson, Bret Ernst, Roy Wood Jr, Dominique, Craig Shoemaker, and John Morgan.

After only 6 months in Atlanta Rocky landed a spot on the hit Reality TV Series Redneck Island on CMT. Rocky has since auditioned for Wild N Out, Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam, and Showcased twice for CMT. Rocky will be moving to New York in April to pursue comedy in the big apple.

Rockys comedy does not have a style or appeal to a particular group. Country, urban, or mainstream his jokes still impress because as he says “funny is funny”. His southern accent and truthful comedy have become a huge hit at any mic he touches.

Monty Mitchell @ SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show (The East Room) 3/2/2014

Monty Mitchell at SPiFFY SQUiRREL Comedy Show at The East Room 3/2/2014

When Monty Mitchell takes those long lanky steps toward the stage, you soon discover that story-teller is very different. He takes your audience through a varied routine pushing them toward disbelief, shock, and appreciation for his comedic talents….all the while they are laughing hysterically at his stories. Monty can take stories ranging from a funeral visit, to a fast food drive-through experience, to a police officer’s traffic stop and make them stories you will never ever forget. By the time you get to the end of his show, you’ve heard (maybe more than you planned to) about his marriage, his son, his cat, and his latest trip to the low-rent strip bar.

Monty has been held hostage in the corporate world for years, and the comedy stage has been calling for him to perform. So perform he has across the nation, in bars, colleges, and on-stage. Monty’s unabashed enthusiasm and comedic style turns any event (and open-minded crowd) into a great night of comedy.

Monty Mitchell can be found online at FunnyMonty.com, Twitter.com/montymitchell, Facebook.com/pages/Monty-Mitchell/.

Here’s video of Monty’s standup:

They’ve assembled a line-up of some of the finest comedians in Nashville including Christy Eidson, Chad Riden, Mary Jay Berger and Monty Mitchell.
