SPiFFY SQUiRREL is Nashville’s only truly independent, underground professional weekly alt comedy show. Featuring touring comedians from all corners of the earth, plus outstanding local regulars who are worth paying attention to. Sundays at 7:30pm at The East Room for just $5 cover. This week features The Rocketship Comedy Tour.
Rocketship Comedy is a banner that represents high quality, independent stand up comedy shows in Indianapolis, IN. Rocketship has taken the show on the road for a few weeks with comics Cam O'Connor, Dwight Simmons and Tom Brady. Joining them in Nashville are recent Indy transplant Anthony Turner and Nashville's own Chad Riden.
Charismatic, relatable and honest to a fault, Cam O'Connor is one of the hardest working young comedians in the Midwest. In a relatively short period of time, he has opened for Kyle Kinane, Stewart Huff and Doug Stanhope, and was the touring opener for Ryan Singer and Jarrod Harris on their "Organic Comedy Tour." The twelve-state "Organic" tour, which celebrated underground comedy scenes across the country, was filmed for a documentary that is scheduled to be released in 2014. Cam was recently a finalist in both the 2012 Funniest Person in Cincinnati competition and the Bob & Tom All-Star Contest. A native of Indianapolis, IN, Cam is the creator of Rocketship Comedy, a series of stand-up showcases that are quickly becoming a preferred destination for many of the most respected names in comedy.
DISCLAIMER: Cam O’Connor is NOT one of the most respected names in comedy.

Quick to quote Nietzsche and T-Pain in the same breath, Dwight Simmons is a true wildcard. He touches on everything including, but not limited to, social commentary, relationships, sex, children, politics and of course racial issues. Having grown up in two completely different environments, one predominantly rich, one predominantly poor, Dwight offers an interesting and fresh perspective that represents both sides of the spectrum.

Tom Brady is a comic living in Chicago by way of Bloomington, IN. His personal, yet silly style of comedy has led to him winning the 2009 and 2011 Bloomington Comedy Festivals, held at the Comedy Attic in Bloomington, IN. Recently, Tom was featured on PBS as a centerpiece for a segment on the art of comedy. This summer, he has been chosen to perform on the main stage at the Limestone Comedy Festival in Bloomington, IN, as well as on the main stage at the Cincinnati Brew Haha Comedy Festival in Cincinnati, OH.
