Remembering Brian E. Kiley

 

Comedy on the Cumberland Clarksville, TN -I simply can’t put into words the sadness I’m feeling over the death of Nashville comedian, Brian E. Kiley.  I met him when I entered the Nashville comedy scene a few years ago. He was an amazing comic, and just one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met.

Brian E. Kiley was killed by a drunk driver as he drove home from a performance in North Carolina a couple of weeks ago.

The heart wrenching tragedy of this is being felt throughout the Nashville comedy community.  Brian was just a guy everybody was pulling for.  There was no doubt he was going to “make it.”

Proceeds from the July 20th show will go to benefit the Clarksville chapter of the American Red Cross, with proceeds going directly to the local chapter. “The great flood of 2010 not only devastated Clarksville, it also devastated the Red Cross facility on Riverside drive”, said Bonecutter, “While the flood waters have receded, during the flooding the local chapter of the Red Cross put a tremendous amount of their resources into our community, and they are still out there on the front lines helping families in need. So it was a no-brainer for us to do something to help them out, and so our next show is going to be for them”. «Read the rest of this article»
