Originating in 2005, The NashvilleStandUp Podcast was one of the very first comedy podcasts around. We were doing this so early in the game that the domain “ComedyPodcast.com” was AVAILABLE for sale and purchased by NashvilleStandUp.com’s Chad Riden for $8.
The N’Sup Podcast was, at the time, the ONLY comedy podcast in iTunes where a panel of comics sat around being jackasses, ripping on each other, playing clips from live shows, doing phone interviews with comedians.. and originated the now famous (and often imitated) Iron Comic comedy competition. A highlight of these old shows was a phoner from Patton Oswalt.
Many of the early episodes originally aired live as “The NashvilleStandUp Radio Show” on X-Radio in Nashville, Tennessee. A later GarageBand produced revival of the show was short lived, but set the stage for the sketch-based Mangy Dog Radio Hour Whoop Dee Doo, which continued for 49 episodes and spawned one Greatest Hits cd.
Today, if you search for the NashvilleStandUp Podcast in iTunes or at NashvilleStandUp.ComedyPodcast.com/ you’ll find all of those old episodes PLUS new video clips of individual sets from the last few N’Sup Showcase @ Zanies shows.
NashvilleStandUp will be adding more clips over time. Also, we’ll add the audio tracks from all of the old N’Sup cd’s produced at the Truth, Beauty & Goodness shows in Ashland City & some other old recordings we’ve got sitting around in the archives. We’ve got unlimited server space and bandwidth, so we can leave these things in that spot forever.. so, comics, if there is anything of yours you find that you DO NOT want online just let us know and we’ll take it down.
This week’s guest is Nashville comedian Billy Wayne Davis! Billy tells us about his wedding, impending divorce and the DUI that happened in between. Then a round table discussion breaks out about writing scripts, children and the south. Finally, the show wraps with a creepily in depth discussion about lesbian sex scenes in movies. Enjoy!
The time is at hand.. the MangyDog Radio Hour Whoop-Dee-Doo sketch comedy podcast goes live this coming Saturday, February 28th, at the Improv Nashville Comedy Theater with songs, sketches, standup and surprises. Will there be pony rides? You won’t know unless you go!

And now, a news update from native Nashvillian (now New Yorker), the very funny.. Keith Alberstadt:
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings, Feliz Navidad, Happy Hanukkah…and any other special greeting that helps you forget about the jackhole who took the parking space that you were patiently waiting for at the mall. I hope this season is a great one for you! I wanted to keep you updated on the latest news in my world before things get too hectic in your world.

The Bob and Tom Show has been great to me over the years, and they’ve asked me to join them again in the studio.. this Tuesday, Dec. 16. Make sure to listen. Visit bobandtom.com for affiliate lists and how to listen online. They also broadcast morning shows later on WGN-TV.. so you can watch the highlights on TV too.
You should read my special holiday column that I just wrote titled “A Keith Christmas”.. especially if you’re still struggling with what kind of gifts to get this year and what to stay away from. Hint: Naming a star after someone is one of the worst gift ideas that doesn’t involve the word “Chia”. Read why here.
And there’s still plenty of news to joke about. Read my latest December topicals here and listen to my weekly podcast over at http://keithcomedy.comedypodcast.com/ (also on iTunes).
