#Upchurch

Mad Hatter Shows present
Upchurch The Redneck
funnier than a chili dog fart in a space suit

8:00p / doors 7:00p  |  $30 advance / VIP $60


Ryan Edward Upchurch was born in Cheetham County TN on Mat 24th 1991.  He comes from a close family full of humor which led him to become the hilarious redneck comedian we know today.  In 2014, while hanging with some friends Ryan started creating videos as his character "Upchurch The Redneck" within four months time he gained over 100,000 fans.  In less than a year he hit over a million fans on social media.

In some of his famous videos, Ryan would sing bits of his favorite country songs.  Fans couldn’t get enough and would beg for more.  In July, 2014 Ryan put out his first single “Raise Hell and Eat Cornbread” which started the RHEC craze.  Before long, Ryan had his own RHEC clothing line.  Redneck Nation quickly sponsored the clothing line and in no time RHEC merchandise became popular.

It seems everything Ryan touches turns to gold. He has such a kind heart and outgoing personally, he is just easy to love.  In 2015, he joined the team of Rise & Stand to help the organization raise awareness about bullying and labeling.  He spends a good majority of his time mentoring fans in need. Recently, Ryan released his hick-hop rap album “Cheatham County”.  The album was in the top 25 before even hitting shelves.

#JawgaBoyz

Mad Hatter Shows present
Jawga Boyz

8:00p / doors 7:00p  |  $20 advance / VIP $30


Jawga Boyz came up during the 2013-2014 season when the genre of hick-hop was exploding across the charts, but the Athens, Georgia crew preferred to refer to their rap-meets-country music as "kuntry" to separate themselves from the competition.   Formed in 2003, the group went through numerous personnel changes before finding the right mix with Derek Thrasher, Justin Young, A.J. McIntyre, Mark Bryant, Matt "Manchild" Marshall, and Cody "Stixxx" Hutchings.  Uploading tracks like "Rollin Like a Redneck" and "Ridin High" to video-sharing sites earned the group over ten million views, and in 2011 these cuts found their album home when the debut effort Kuntry appeared.  The follow-up, Hick Hop 101, followed in 2012 with cuts like "Redneck Dirt Road Riders", "Down in a Holler". and "Waylon's Gone", then a year later the Boyz teamed with country-with-a-C superstar Joe Diffie for the single "Girl Ridin' Shotgun." Reloaded 1 arrived in late 2013, and became their first effort to chart on Billboard.  Less than a year later, a collaborative effort with Dez, Tailgate Music, landed on the Billboard 200 and also climbed up the country, rap, and Heatseekers charts. Released in 2016, Mud Boggin Crew featured appearances by Charlie Farley, Porch Matthews, Tennessee Shine, Boondock Kingz, and more. Reloaded 2, a sequel to their 2013 album, was issued in early 2018 and rounded up guests like Hard Target and Twang & Round.

8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW
US 1975 | digital | Dir: Jim Sharman | 100min | R

Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.

the Irving Theater welcomes
Ryan Harris Brown (Nashville)
Emily Morrone (Bloomington)
Sophis (Indianapolis)
Nate Raab (Indianapolis)

8:00p / doors 7:30p  |  free ($5 suggested)


Nashville based singer/songwriter, Ryan Harris Brown, uses his love of intimate storytelling and his expert, classic musicianship, to create songs that are both thought provoking and unforgettable.  Influenced by songwriters such as John Mayer, Ben Folds, and James Taylor, Ryan strives to take his listeners on a journey of his own self-discovery, growth, love, and adventure, while inviting listeners to reflect on their own along side him.

After the release of his EP, Wave Goodbye, Wave Hello in 2013, Ryan was busy touring and sharing his music across the country.  He continued writing, wanting to build off of, what he considers WGWH to be, a personal introduction and a collection of songs about acceptance and progression.

Furthering his examination of time and personal development, Ryan's debut full length album, Stranded In The Present Tense, chronicles the next chapter of his life.  The recording of this album was delayed by almost a year, as Ryan dealt with severe medical concerns, which kept him in and out of the hospital.   Ryan celebrated his recovvery by returning to sudios in both Portland and Nashville in 2016 to create the album.  Featuring acclaimed artists and musicians such as 2017 Grammy nominated, Sierra Hull (Best Folk Album of the Year), Nir Z (John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Geneses), and David LaBruyere (John Mayer), and co-produced with Gus Berry, a fellow Berklee graduate, this album continues to showcase Ryan's guitar vocabulary and relatable songwriting.

With health complications behind him, Ryan is looking forward to sharing this new release with people across the country.  In this words of his single, “Begin,” “As one thing ends, something new begins.”

#TomArnold

Mad Hatter Shows present
Tom Arnold

7:00p / doors 6:00p  |  $27 / VIP $37 advance


As a writer, producer, and actor, Tom Arnold has established himself to both television and film audiences worldwide, having won such awards as the Peabody Award and a Golden Globe Award.  Additionally, he helped put Fox Sports Network on the map with his hosting duties on “BEST DAMN SPORTS SHOW PERIOD”.  Arnold currently hosts CMT’s “MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING” and “MY BIG REDNECK VACATION” which premiered at the highest ratings in CMT history.

Arnold cornered the market on playing the resident comic relief in films like “NINE MONTHS” with Hugh Grant, Julianne Moore, and Robin Williams, “TRUE LIES” with Arnold Schwarzenegger, “HERO” with Dustin Hoffman, and “AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY” with Mike Myers.  Arnold will next be seen in his 72nd film, Stephen Gyllenhaal’s quirky political comedy “GRASSROOTS”, Tyler Perry’s “MADEA’S WITNESS PROTECTION” and “HIT AND RUN” with Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Bradley Cooper.

Arnold has successfully broken out of the comedic stereotype and is becoming a fixture at film festivals by landing more mature and dramatic roles.  He received critical praise for his role in “GARDENS OF THE NIGHT,” opposite John Malkovich, “THE GREAT BUCK HOWARD” starring John Malkovich and Tom Hanks, “GOOD DICK” opposite Jason Ritter, and “THE YEAR OF GETTING TO KNOW US” opposite Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon and Lucy Liu.  In 2005, he received critical notice for his role in Don Roos’ “HAPPY ENDINGS” for Lions Gate Films. He was also seen in “PRIDE” opposite Terrance Howard, and “ANIMAL FACTORY,” directed by Steve Buscemi.  Other film credits include “SOUL PLANE,” “CRADLE TO THE GRAVE,” “EXIT WOUNDS” and “THE KID & I.”

Arnold began his career in comedy at the University of Iowa before moving to Minneapolis, where he won the Minneapolis Comedy Competition in 1988.  He then moved to Los Angeles to write on the highly successful television series, “ROSEANNE,” before eventually serving as executive producer for the sitcom.  He went on to star in his own HBO special entitled “TOM ARNOLD: THE NAKED TRUTH,” and then wrote, produced and starred in his own television series “THE JACKIE THOMAS SHOW,” “TOM” and “THE TOM SHOW.”

Born in Iowa, Tom has established a writing scholarship and runs an acting workshop for students at the Indian Hills Community College in Iowa.  Tom is heavily involved in many charities such as The Race to Erase MS, the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, Best Buddies, Camp del Corazon, The Kayne Eras Center, Promises Foundation, Carousel of Hope, Arnold’s Inner City Games, The Hollenbeck Christmas Giveaway, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Special Olympics, the USO and GLAAD for which he won the Vanguard Award.

Tom Arnold recently returned to his roots as a stand-up comic.  Never scripted, Tom pokes fun at his Midwest past, marital follies and absurd Hollywood stories.  Just like his past film and television comedy work, Tom is a ball of chaos and charisma on stage.  Showtime premiered his first stand-up comedy special on New Year’s Eve, and he frequently hosts the popular “Laughing with the Stars” weekly comedy show at The Laugh Factory in West Hollywood featuring supporting acts ranging from rising young comics to all-time favorites.  His shows are famous for their loose atmosphere with Tom breaking down the walls between his fellow comics and the audience.  No one is quite sure what to expect any given night.

Arnold currently resides in Los Angeles.
