Maybe you’ve heard all the hullabaloo about “Death By Death 2, a comedy about killing people” – an entry Nashville 48 Hour Film Project featuring Nashville comedian Brad Edwards & Janet Williams “The Tennessee Tramp.” It recently premiered at the Belcourt and positive feedback has been pouring in. One big Nashville media mogul said, “I’ve seen it and it is hilarious. If you don’t go see it and think it’s hilarious, then you are absolutely incorrect.”
The entire short runs 7:43 and you can see it on the YouTubes and right here:
Once again, local comic / filmmaker Joel T Wilson and his “I Love Betty Productions” competed in the Nashville 48 Hour Film Project. This year, his entry was “Death By Death 2, a comedy about killing people” featuring Nashville comedian Brad Edwards & Janet Williams “The Tennessee Tramp.” NashvilleStandUp has seen the short film and it is FUNNY.
Here’s a trailer for “Diebold Thoroughkill” – which appears as a movie trailer within “Death By Death 2”:

ilovebetty productions recently put together “Brad’s Night Out” – a funny short shot at Zanies featuring quite a few comics familiar to fans of Nashville’s comedy scene including Brad Edwards, Sean Parrott, Lahna Turner, Dan Whitehurst, Perry Redd, Scott D. Hill, Tim Long, Courtney Meyers, Joe Southards, Janet Williams and Joel T Wilson. Let’s all watch together as comedian Brad Edwards “finds love in the most unlikely of places:”
Friday March 9th and Saturday March 10th, The Jackasses Of Comedy bring their snarky remarks, slander and slams to Zanies Comedy Showplace in Nashville. Doing a series of late-show-only performances (9:45pm on Friday & 11:15pm on Saturday), the Jackasses probably aren’t the best choice for your next church group outing.. but if you like politically incorrect, socially irresponsible, adult-themed stand-up – put down the bong and come out to the show.
The line-up for these shows includes “The Tennessee Tramp” Janet Williams, “America’s Favorite Comedian Of All Time” Chad Riden, “Improvisational Genius” Jesse Perry, and “Token Minority Comedian So It’s Not Just Whiteys” Damian Anaya. The Nashville Scene recently wrote, “Las Vegas has the Rat Pack, and Tennessee has this loose consortium of stand-up comedians.” Leave it to the Scene to encapsulate the sharp-tongued, anti-establishment spirit of the Jackasses Of Comedy with such a contemporary, hip reference and a word like “consortium”. Sigh. Regardless, they’re right.. the Jackasses are pretty much the modern-day Frank Sinatra – Dean Martin – Sammy Davis, Jr. – Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop’s of the state. Come on out to check out Chad Riden’s creepy glass eye.
