Watch an Exclusive Trailer for Brad Paisley’s Netflix Comedy SpecialPhoto courtesy of Netflix Comedy Video Brad Paisley
You read that right: country superstar Brad Paisley, who set a record with ten consecutive number one singles on the Billboard country charts between 2005 and 2009, has a comedy special coming to Netflix. Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo hits the streaming service on August 15, and you can watch the first trailer exclusively here at Paste. If you’re wondering how the man who gave us hits like “Mud on the Tires” and “I’m Gonna MIss Her (The Fishin’ Song)” can just effortlessly pivot to stand-up like this, well, he’s not, entirely: yeah, he might tell some jokes between playing a few songs, but he’s more like the MC here, setting the stage for a great line-up of comics from the South and beyond. That group includes Nate Bargatze (who had his own half-hour special debut on Netflix last month), Sarah Tiana, Jon Reep, Mike E. Winfield and John Heffron, who all got together with Paisley during Nashville’s Wild West Comedy Festival to record the thing. Check out that trailer above and get your laughing boots ready for August 15.
