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.

Help document the greatest dumbest thing we’ve ever done twice on film

help produce a #BrokenRecordShow documentary film

help produce a #BrokenRecordShow documentary film

The only thing more pointless and silly than more than DOUBLING the world record for “LONGEST STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW – MULTIPLE COMEDIANS,” would be breaking your own GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title (184 hours, 16 minutes) by just five minutes. Guess what we’re doing?

Last year’s #BrokenRecordShow was SO FUN. We shot video of the entire show to meet GUINNESS’ evidence requirements but we really wish we could have filmed a documentary about what we were doing. We have all the resources we need to successfully run this 8-day long show and beat our own world record, but we don’t have the equipment we need to film a behind the scenes documentary about doing this very dumb thing (again). That’s where you come in.

We’ve launched an IndieGoGo crowd-funding campaign to pay for the minimum equipment we need to film a documentary.

What We Need

  • Three GoPro Hero4 cameras (3 x $329 = $987)
  • Six 64GB SD cards (6 x $24 = $144)
  • One USB hard drive ($125)
  • If we raise more money than the bare minimum we need ($1256 + 10% to cover the fees IndieGoGo will take out), maybe we’ll be able to buy a MacBook Pro to edit this thing on and be able to compensate people who help us out.

What You’ll Get
We appreciate your help. Here’s some ways we’ll thank you:

  • VIP all-access passes to the show May 15-23 at The East Room in Nashville, TN – watch hundreds of comics driven to madness by a relentless amount of comedy as many times as you want.
  • Tickets to an Exclusive Advance Screening of the finished film
  • Digital download of the finished film
  • YOUR NAME in the credits of the film / on IMDB
  • Weird other stuff?

Risks & Challenges
We HAVE done this before. That said, God is cruel and there are several ways he could possibly smote us:

  • The East Room is destroyed by terrorists who hate freedom and comedy.
  • What if we DON’T break our own world record? We’ll look pretty dumb, won’t we? The big difference is we first broke the world record after 80 hours and this time it’s going to take us 184 hours and 16 minutes to do it. That’s many more opportunities to screw this up.

Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:

  • Please tell your friends on social media!
  • Volunteer to help! Last year we had over 60 volunteers and we couldn’t have done the show without them.
  • SHOW UP at the show! We need butts in the seats. Everybody will be much more comfortable with a full audience.
  • Join the NashvilleStandUp.com mailing list & follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & YouTube.
  • Steal money from some richie rich person who doesn’t deserve what they have and THEN contribute with THAT money.
  • Wherever you live, go find the local comedy shows and comedians and support them. The super famous incredible “breakout” comics of 10-15 years from now are trying standup comedy for the first time ever this week and you could be there to see them.

Thank you very much for donating and we hope to see you at the show!

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.. and we’re going to do it again.
