One of the most popular and highly recognized standup comedians on the road today has also made quite an impression in the feature film and television arena, but it was ‘The Original Kings Of Comedy’ that launched D.L. into superstardom.

Win Chad Riden’s “FREEdumb” cd

Chad Riden - FreeDumb stand-up cd
NashvilleStandUp is giving away a copy of Chad Riden’s new “FREEdumb” cd. Register to win below.
Chad says, “Despite multiple requests for me to NOT do so, I’ve produced a cd of my stand-up and crap. 15 tracks of stand-up plus me singing a dumb parody of John Lennon’s “Imagine” as a free bonus. That, my friends, is FREEdumb.”
Chad’s stand-up on the cd was recorded on April 30th at Comedy, TN in Memphis by John Marks and Sammy Marten. “They were the very first comedy club to pay me to feature (be the middle act),” said Riden “I’m glad I could come back three years later to the month and have something tangible to show just how little progress I’ve made.”

Wix Wichmann in FameCast Competition

In a search for the nation’s best new talent, FameCast has launched an online competition – an artist discovery and entertainment community platform. Artists can connect with a national audience and compete to become the next FameCast Fenom, a prize worth $10,000 and national exposure. Season One is in full swing and Nashville’s own Wix Wichmann is in the final 10 comics.
Wix says..

Ok everyone I’m getting desperate now. For those of you who don’t know, I’m in an online comedy competition that started with over 100 comics and they have whittled it down to the Top 10. I’m currently sitting in the 9th position and voting ends on Saturday! If I get into the Top 5 I fly to Austin to compete for $10,000. Which would work great for me now that I have to buy my own Jim Beam. If you haven’t voted yet, please do, it only requires you to sign in and is painless.
Here’s the link. After you click it, you’ll have to scroll through the ten comics until you get to my picture. Click on it and vote where the checkmark is below my picture.
