CHAD RIDEN INTRODUCED MARC MARON TO PRINCE’S HOT CHICKEN

Have you ever wondered who held the title of ambassador to comedy for the up and coming comedian in Nashville? It would be comedian Chad Riden.

Chad Riden has appeared on “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, the Late Show with David Letterman’s “Tony Mendez Show”, ABC’s “Nashville,” and is featured on an episode of CMT-Canada’s “Mississippi Snake Grabbers.”

Riden’s comedy is about his chaotic reality. Chad has weathered bankruptcy, divorce and foreclosure, launched a poultry farm, co-produced and headlined the Guinness World Records breaking #BrokenRecordShow, and made an unsuccessful run for mayor of Nashville. Riden tells self-incriminating stories that embarrass his daughter and make everybody else think he’s a weirdo. He lives in East Nashville with two flying squirrels and a turtle.

From April 12-20, 2015, Riden co-produced and headlined the world record setting #BrokenRecordShow at The East Room 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, Keith Alberstadt, Jon Reep, Ahmed Ahmed and Killer Beaz. Chad slept only 20 hours total over the course of 10 days, and only had to yell at two people who absolutely deserved it. He is not sorry at all.

“Chad’s a good guy. He’s been through a rough divorce and his heart is heavy; he’s got a burden. That burden makes him funny.” – Marc Maron, WTF Episode 209 (September, 2011) & in Marc’s book “Attempting Normal,” on page 175.

Mike & Chad Riden talk about David Letterman, Marc Maron, Comedy, & breaking the longest comedy show record again
