Brad Paisley Hosting Wild West Comedy Festival Showcase for a Third Year
Brad Paisley is taking to the stand-up comedy stage once again in 2017. The country star will host two showcases during this year's Wild West Comedy Festival.
This year will be Paisley's third consecutive time hosting a showcase during the Wild West Comedy Festival, which takes place in April in Nashville, but in 2017, he's doubling down, hosting two shows instead of just one. Paisley's showcases will take place back to back on April 18, at Zanies on 8th Avenue South in Nashville, but performers for his shows have not yet been announced.
Unforgettable Country Tour Pranks
The Wild West Comedy Festival was started by comedian and actor Vince Vaughn. In 2017, the event will feature Adam Sandler, David Spade, Ralphie May, Patton Oswalt, Anjelah Johnson and more throughout its one-week run. More information about the Wild West Comedy Festival, including information on tickets, can be found at WildWestComedyFestival.com.
Paisley’s comedic antics are well-known within the country music community, from his hilarious songs and music videos to his penchant for tour pranks; the singer has also lent his voice to South Park in the past and gets laughs as co-host of the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood. His next studio album, Love and War, is scheduled for release on April 21; the project features collaborations with Mick Jagger, Timbaland, John Fogerty and Bill Anderson as well as the song “Gold All Over the Ground,” which lists Johnny Cash as a co-writer.
