Beginning at 5am on Sunday, April 16th, 2017, Nashville StandUp will attempt to set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST COMEDY VARIETY SHOW” at Third Coast Comedy Club in Nashville, TN as part of the Wild West Comedy Festival. Nashville Standup is the current record holder for “LONGEST STANDUP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” – a record it has topped twice.

The non-stop, 24-hours-a-day, 8+ day schedule will feature showcases, feature-length, and headliner-length sets, and will include surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune (and infamy and misfortune) PLUS sketch and improv comedy group performances! The show is co-produced by Nashville-based comedians DJ Buckley, Chad Riden and Mary Jay Berger.

From April 12-20, 2015, NashvilleStandUp.com produced the first World Record setting #BrokenRecordShow in Nashville, Tennessee – a non-stop 184 hour, 16 minute long standup comedy show that more than doubled the previous GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title of “Longest Stand-Up Comedy Show – Multiple Comedians.” The show featured about 100 comedians, including surprise celebrity guest sets from Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre, Rory Scovel, Nate Bargatze, Luis J. Gomez, Keith Alberstadt, Jon Reep, Ahmed Ahmed and Killer Beaz.

The only thing more pointless and silly than more than DOUBLING a world record would be topping your own title by just five minutes. Guess what we did? #BrokenRecordShow vol. 2 started at 5am May 15, 2016 and ran non-stop through 4:01pm May 24th as an official part of the Wild West Comedy Festival. That’s 227 hours and 1 minute. Due to a snafu which broke the show, the clock was restarted and the official record-breaking showtime was 184 hours and 21 minutes according to GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS rules. Over 120 comedians performed, including: Rory Scovel, Nate Bargatze, Jay Larson, Nick Thune, Geoff Tate, Ben Kronberg, Sara Tiana, Joe Derosa, Josh Wolf, Tom Simmons, Stewart Huff, Megan Gailey, Ahmed Ahmed, Dave Ross, and Myq Kaplan. Ben Kronberg said, “It was the most unique legit special comedy experience I’ve probably ever had.”

While conquering the “Longest Stand-Up Comedy Show – Multiple Comedians” record twice, the producers were constrained by very specific rules about what could be allowed on stage during the show. For #BrokenRecordShow vol.3, in order to compliment Third Coast Comedy Club’s mission to empower local artists to produce every form of comedy (stand-up, sketch, improv, comedic plays, variety shows, live podcasts, and talk shows), #BrokenRecordShow producers decided to try something new – setting a record for “LONGEST COMEDY VARIETY SHOW” including stand-up, sketch and improv acts.

It’s The Greatest Dumbest Thing We’ve Ever Done Again.. And Again.

#BrokenRecordShow vol.3 begins at 5am on Easter Sunday, April 16th, 2017 and continues through 9:26pm Sunday, April 23rd (senselessly beating #BrokenRecordShow’s “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” record’s run time by five minutes) for a total of 184 hours and 26 minutes.

GUINNESS rules dictate that there must be at least 10 audience members at all times. No matter what time of day or night, somebody will be on stage telling jokes, so go hang out. “DAY DRINKER” passes are available for just $5 from 5am – 5pm every day. 24-HOUR PASSES are $10 and ALL ACCESS and VIP options are also available which allow patrons to come and go as they please throughout the entire festival. Tickets are available at Third Coast Comedy Club and online.

Announcing #BrokenRecordShow vol. 3: April 16-23, 2017

#BrokenRecordShow vol.3 April 16-23, 2017 at Third Coast Comedy Club

#BrokenRecordShow vol.3 April 16-23, 2017 at Third Coast Comedy Club

Beginning on Sunday, April 16th, 2017 at 5am, Nashville StandUp will attempt to top the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “LONGEST VARIETY SHOW” at Third Coast Comedy Club in Nashville, TN as part of the Wild West Comedy Festival. The current record is 100 hours, 49 minutes and was accomplished by Ranjini Kalakendra and Sri Sankara TV at Freedom Park, Bengaluru, India, February 6-10, 2015. Nashville Standup is the current record holder for “LONGEST STANDUP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” – a record it has topped twice.

The non-stop, 24-hours-a-day, 8+ day schedule will feature showcases, feature-length, and headliner-length sets, and will include surprise drop-ins from comedians of various levels of fame and fortune (and infamy and misfortune). The show is co-produced by Nashville-based comedians DJ Buckley, Chad Riden and Mary Jay Berger.

It’s The Greatest Dumbest Thing We’ve Ever Done Thrice.

While conquering the marathon comedy show record, producers were constrained by very specific rules about what could be allowed on stage during the show. In order to compliment Third Coast Comedy Club’s mission to empower local artists to produce every form of comedy (stand-up, sketch, improv, comedic plays, variety shows, live podcasts, and talk shows), this year the #BrokenRecordShow team decided to attempt to top the “LONGEST VARIETY SHOW” record, which allows a wider variety of types of acts in addition to everybody’s undisputed favorite – hilarious stand-up comedy.

“If there was a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for ‘The Most Times A Group Of Idiots Broke The Same World Record Even Though Nobody Else Has Tried To Top Them Because What They’re Doing Is So Incredibly Silly,’ we’d go after that one too,” said #BrokenRecordShow producer Chad Riden.

From April 12-20, 2015, NashvilleStandUp.com produced the first World Record setting #BrokenRecordShow at The East Room in Nashville, Tennessee – a non-stop 184 hour, 16 minute long standup comedy show that more than doubled the previous GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title of “Longest Stand-Up Comedy Show – Multiple Comedians.” The show featured about 100 comedians, including surprise celebrity guest sets from Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre, Rory Scovel, Nate Bargatze, Luis J. Gomez, Keith Alberstadt, Jon Reep, Ahmed Ahmed and Killer Beaz.

By more than doubling the previous record of 80 hours, this non-stop stand up comedy marathon put Nashville into the record books of comedy history. A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title Adjudicator was on site to certify the attempt as an official world record on Wednesday April 15th at 8pm.. but the show kept going until Monday, April 20th, at 4:20am. Hundreds of people attended the event and even more watched online. The successful attempt was covered by many local and international media outlets and mentioned in countless social media posts. It was the greatest, dumbest thing we ever did.

The only thing more pointless and silly than more than DOUBLING a world record would be topping your own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title by just five minutes. Guess what we did?

#BrokenRecordShow vol. 2 started at 5am May 15, 2016 and ran non-stop through 4:01pm May 24th as an official part of the Wild West Comedy Festival. That’s 227 hours and 1 minute.

Ben Kronberg said, “It was the most unique legit special comedy experience I’ve probably ever had.”

#BrokenRecordShow vol.3 will begin at 5am on Sunday, April 16th, 2017. The current “LONGEST VARIETY SHOW” record will be topped at 9am, Thursday, April 20, but the show will continue through 9:26pm Sunday, April 23rd (senselessly beating #BrokenRecordShow’s “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS” record’s run time by five minutes) for a total of 184 hours and 26 minutes.

GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title attempt #BrokenRecordShow hits 48-hour milestone at The East Room

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.

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!
