A few words from Chad Riden

NashvilleStandUp.com was launched in the late 1990s by Andrew Sullivan and then was passed along to me in 2001. NSUP became a 501c3 non-profit on 12/16/2014.

I have enjoyed the last 22 years in Nashville .. or at least most of them.. well some of them.. okay maybe just a few.. but my time here is done.  some would say my time here was done in 2007 and to them, I say: zingaroo! Ya got me.

Anyway, I am out of here. I’m off to build an Earthship – inspired weird comedy commune on the high desert Mesa near Taos, New Mexico. Want to help? Start driving West on I-40 and when you smell my musk, pull over. you found me.

Me and a bunch of volunteers and friends and family will be building all kinds of eco-friendly off-the-grid structures using negative carbon footprint alternative building techniques out there including a comedy club so come hang out whenever you want. We would love to see you. (New Mexico has a progressive female Democrat Governor; legal cannabis; the strongest LGBT+ protections in the nation; access to legal abortion; and isn’t sweat dripping from your balls humid. For real, come hang.)

Here’s a video about what I’m doing:

As far as “Nashville StandUp” is concerned, I will maintain the non-profit, taking a passive role as I work on my new endeavors. I have handed the keys over to some very competent women who I know will take what I have done here and run with it, making something far better than I ever could.

Please join me in supporting them as they take Nashville Comedy to the next level. If you’d like to volunteer I am sure they would appreciate your help.

My philosophy has always been: promote everybody and everything and all boats will rise. Now, some of the boats did sink.. But that’s not on me. I did my part. It’s now somebody else’s turn.

Thank you for all of your support over the years. Even if I don’t ever remember your name and am sometimes mean to you just know that I love you and I will miss you and I hope to see you in the future. I will be back often. probably far more often than you would like.. But until then, goodbye forever, I will see you never.

your frenemy,
Chad Riden

NashvilleStandUp presents..
a super random house show

Ben combines clever one-liners and witty observations with catchy songs that he performs while playing instruments like the guitar, casio-keyboard and iPhone! Much of his material has been inspired by girlfriends, who are now incidentally ex-girlfriends. Since his breakout performance at the 2007 HBO Aspen Comedy Festival, Ben has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and most recently his own Half Hour Special on Comedy Central. Comedy Central recently named Ben as one of the “Comics to Watch.” Ben is also the star of the popular web series: “Ted & Gracie,” about a woman who is engaged to a serial killer and has no idea…
