It’s been a rough year for the Nashville Zanies. Like every other club in the world, they found themselves closed during the spring and early summer, due to the coronavirus. Once they were able to open back in June comedian DL Hughley collapsed onstage from COVID-19 as the club shut down again briefly. Finally as they close out the year, a truck crashed through the side of the club.
Yesterday, a truck crashed into the Nashville comedy club after the driver forgot to put his emergency break on. Luckily nobody was harmed, and the damage looked like it only effected one side of the building. It did however, manage to destroy Nate Bargatze’s face mural on the side of the building in the process. Bargatze, naturally, had a pretty good sense of humor about the ordeal saying he guess the driver didn’t like his jokes from the night before as he took to social media to share some images of his mural’s before and after as well as a clip from the local news.
The side of the club that got hit has already been boarded up. It appears this week’s shows will be cancelled but the club still plans to open again this weekend. They also joked that, “like it or not, we now have outdoor dining.”
We had a minor mishap involving a dump truck today. Everyone is OK 🙏. Like it or not, we now have some outdoor seating!! We’ll provide updates to ticket purchasers for this week’s shows soon.
