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.

A night of comedy benefiting Nashville’s independent community radio station WRFN 107.1 Radio Free Nashville! After 8 years on the LPFM dial, RFN is gearing up to sign on to a second frequency, 103.7 FM, a translator that will reach ALL of Nashville. This will give the station the opportunity to be heard citywide, but funds need to be raised to acquire the necessary equipment.
Comedians Ron Placone (host of MediaBytes) and Jessica Carter (host of Friday Night Drama) are both programmers at Radio Free Nashville, and have organized this comedy benefit to help the cause. 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. All proceeds raised from the event will go to Radio Free Nashville.
Come for a night of laughs and to support independent radio!

D.J. Dangler’s comedy is a high-energy blend of curiosity and commentary. He melds East-Coast cynicism with Midwestern politeness to create a unique and accessible take on the way things are or should be. D.J. tells stories that are hauntingly honest, but disarmingly sincere. Believing nothing is off limits, so long as it’s funny, D.J. pushes forward to prove his message that people everywhere, are pretty much the same, and that if you can make enough of those people laugh, you don’t have to get a real job.
The head writer for Comedy Circus, D.J. has performed at Caroline’s onBroadway, Gotham Comedy Club, and the New York Comedy Club. His debut album, “Where my sixes at?” is available on iTunes. He currently tells jokes all over America, except for Texas, and will make his European Debut this summer. His high energy style informs and entertains crowds of every demographic.
