Brad Paisley Is Hosting A Stand-Up Comedy Special For Netflix

Within the world of Nashville pop-country, Brad Paisley is known as a funny guy, which means he’s perfectly happy to turn doofy single-joke premises into entire hit songs: “Alcohol,” “Ticks.” And once a year, he and Carrie Underwood get together to tell supremely corny jokes as the hosts of the CMA Awards. But it’s a big leap from that stuff to actual stand-up comedy, and Paisley is now making that leap.

As the Root points out, Paisley announced his forthcoming stand-up special Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo this past weekend on Instgram:

On August 15th, my standup comedy special "Brad Paisley's Comedy Rodeo" debuts on @Netflix …

The hour-long special won’t just be Paisley; it’ll also feature actual comedians Nate Bargatze, John Heffron, Jon Reep, Sarah Tiana, and Mike E. Winfield, as well as guest celebs David Hasselhoff and Reba McIntire. It’s really just a showcase that Paisley hosted; it was taped this past April in Nashville. But I hope there’s a fair amount of Paisley stand-up in there, mostly because I am morbidly curious to see how he does. Also, I hope it’s a success and that we end up getting more specials from musicians-turned-comedians. I’d really like to see the Vince Staples stand-up special, or the John Darnielle stand-up special, or the Mark Kozelek stand-up special, or the 2 Chainz stand-up special.

Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo will be up on Netflix 8/15.
