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.

STAY IN TOUCH:
Ryan Singer is the rarest of breeds: A comic’s comic who electrifies mainstream audiences with material that is both uncompromising and unpretentious. The premeditated chaos of Singer’s comedy can now be heard on his debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling recorded at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, OH. Those who enter Singer’s world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance. He has appeared on the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central’s Open Mic Fight.
