THIS SUNDAY we say “Goodbye forever, Joe Kelley!” before he hops into his house and drives to the Pacific NorthWest. Come laugh in Joe’s face until he leaves for good w/ Brad Sativa, Mary Jay Berger, Narado Moore, Sean Parrott, Monty Mitchell, Josh Wagner, Josh Lewis and Chad Riden at Spiffy Squirrel at The East Room 6:30pm 9/4/2016.
We knew the day would come when Nashville comedy’s beloved medicine man would hop into his minivan and drive away. That day is here, saddened friends. Joe Kelley is moving to the Pacific North West, but not before he puts together an all-star showcase of the comics he’ll miss the most. Come say “goodbye forever, Joe!” along with jokes and jeers from Brad Sativa, Mary Jay Berger, Narado Moore, Sean Parrott, Monty Mitchell, Josh Wagner, Josh Lewis and Chad Riden.
Joe Kelley left Flint, Michigan in 2009 with 3 diplomas; A high school diploma, a graphic design diploma, and a radio diploma. Those 3 diplomas led him to Nashville, Tennessee where he began doing stand-up comedy.
Joe has a unique perspective on life, combined with a mid-western charm that makes audiences love him and comfortable with opening up to different ideas.
He has shared the stage with Bobby Lee, Mary-Lynn Rajskub, Steve Rannazzissi, Tom Segura, Robert Kelly, Pete Davidson, Dan Soder, Iliza Shlesinger, and Ron Funches.
Joe was an invaluable asset at 2015’s #BrokenRecordShow (a comedy show that shattered the Guinness World Record for “Longest Stand-Up Comedy Show – Multiple Comedians”) at The East Room in Nashville. He returned in 2016 to once again be a key player as NashvilleStandUp broke it’s own insane world record by just five minutes. Nashville’s DJ Buckley and Chad Riden produce the show which featured sets from Hannibal Burress, Nate Bargatze, Rory Shovel, Ahmed Ahmed, Jon Reep, Eric Andre, Killer Beaz, Geoff Tate, Myq Kaplan, Ben Kronberg, Dave Ross, and Keith Alberstadt along with over 120 other comedian-gladiators.
Joe produces Red Eye Comedy, a series of open mics and showcases in Nashville. Joe has also appeared in the second and third seasons of ABC’s “Nashville”
