Manchester’s four day festival of music, comedy, filthy stinky crowds and incredibly bad traffic runs June 7-10, and as always the published Comedy Tent line-up is amazing: Aziz Ansari, Steven Wright, Marc Maron, Brian Posehn, Reggie Watts, World Champion Judah Friedlander, Childish Gambino, Rhys Darby, Colin Hay, Garfunkel & Oates, Amy Schumer, Mike O’Connell, Matt Besser, Doug Benson, The Chris Gethard Show, Pete Holmes, Rory Scovel, Ali Wong, Kyle Kinane, Nick Thune, Andy Daly, Key & Peele, Jon Dore, Natasha Leggero.
For specific times and line-ups and the latest info, you should probably just check the schedule at Bonnaroo.com, but we’d recommend just sitting in the Comedy Tent for the whole damn weekend. See ya there, hippies!
Rory Scovel returns to Nashville June 5th at The High Watt for what is sure to be another fantastic Corporate Juggernaut show. Even if you’ve seen Rory every time he has played here, you still have no idea what to expect, unless you expect to see a brilliantly funny improvisational genius who uses his already excellent prepared material as a loose framework on which he builds a unique one of a kind experience that leaves the audience feeling like they’ve just started to peak on their magic mushroom fueled comedy trip. He’s one of the most innovative live performers of this generation and if you miss this show for any reason, then you are a fool.
Rory made his television debut on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham” and appeared on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Rory was featured on “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” for Comedy Central as well as “CONAN.” His second half-hour Comedy Central special premiers May 11th at 11pm.
This video is six years old. Watch it and laugh and just imagine how much funnier he has gotten since then:
Here’s a ridiculous promo video Rory made with Todd Glass to promote his new Comedy Central special:

The Southern Comedy Quartet Tour features Southern born nationally touring comedians Sean Patton, Nate Bargatze, Jarrod Harris and Rory Scovel traveling from Nashville to New York City, stopping in New Orleans, Washington DC, Georgia, and the Carolinas. The tour is being filmed for a documentary about the journey. Here’s a funny promo video featuring Sean Patton:
From our good friend Nate Bargatze: “Hey Nashville, This is our first stop on this tour. We will be filming it so come out and let’s make it look great with a great crowd. Tickets are $10 bucks at the door. Come on down and watch a great show and hang out afterwards! Here is a description of what we are doing.”
Here we find Sean Patton, Nate Bargatze, Jarrod Harris and Rory Scovel at the point of no return in the stand-up comedy business. They’ve been performing long enough, they all have television credits and are making just enough money to get by but are still living hand to mouth. The time to turn it off and pursue something else with their lives and careers has passed. The more they push, the more they sacrifice, the more attention they get, the better their odds are of achieving ultimate success in such a cutthroat industry. The heartbreak and stress that exists in such a fun job has never been seen in such an honest light.
This is comedy from the trenches. The realistic portrayal of what it actually takes to survive as a stand-up comedian that no one has ever heard of. Although each has their own distinctive voice, their ability to rock everything from a hipster room in Brooklyn to a casino in the Midwest is what sets them apart from all the rest.
This tour will spotlight personal anecdotes ranging from romantic to tragic. The connections they share as comedians, as southern gentlemen, as artists, as people pursuing a dream that can’t be defined by words.
