CMT Comedy Stage debuts in February

killer beazMelissa Peterman of Reba will be hosting the first four episodes of CMT's new stand up comedy showcase, CMT Comedy Stage. The series, which will tape in front of an audience at Nashville's Belcourt Theater, will debut in February of 2007. The series will feature comedians such as Etta May, Jon Reep, Vic Henley and Killer Beaz. Out of that list the only one I've heard of is Etta May, but that's why God created YouTube, so y'all can get up to speed on these comics.

When Jeff Foxworthy first brought Southern humor to the masses, it wasn't the kind of humor I was into. However, that scene has since exploded and I no longer think it's possible to crowbar every Southern / rural /red state comedian into the same category. It's like saying all New York comedians are the same, it just isn't true. Hey, it doesn't matter to me if you watch this new show or not, but thar ain't nuttin' wrong with expanding your comedy horizons a li'l.

Jon Repp plays the white-trash in the Dodge Hemi commercials. "That thing got a Hemi in it?!" He was also a regualr on ABC's "Rodney" (Highly underrated show).

Too bad I don't get CMT. I *love* Southern humor. I may have been born and raised in the north, but, I'm a Southerner at heart.
