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.”
