About Dusty Slay: Dusty has a smooth southern style that will make you feel so comfortable you have to laugh. It’s like cornbread telling you jokes. He’s clever, quick witted and relatable. Slay was born in Alabama, splitting his time living in a trailer park and on a farm. One would say he was born to be a comedian…or a meth addict. In 2004 Slay moved to Charleston, South Carolina where he began performing Improv Comedy which led to stand up and he is now performing all over the country. Slay recently relocated to Nashville, TN.

Dusty was recently featured on Laughs on Fox and has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, “The Bob and Tom Show”, Last Comic Standing, Laughing Skull Festival of 2015, Charleston Comedy Festival 2012-2015, and Cape Fear Comedy Festival 2012.

“I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth, I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth, and I was lucky to have that spoon” –Dusty Slay
Dusty Slay:

You can take the boy out of the trailer park, but you can’t take the trailer park out of the boy… Stand-up comedian Dusty Slay grew up on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, and his observational comedy and eternally optimistic outlook is peppered with ironies: growing up poor, a love for both hard-core country and classic rock, a career history peppered with jobs like waiting tables and selling pesticides, and what counts as fashion-forward thinking in his world. The trucker hat, long hair and mustache, flannel shirt and oversized glasses aren’t affectations to cultivate a stage persona as the B-side of a 1970-something Bob Seger single—it’s just Slay.  


“There’s still a lot of jokes to come. I looked at everything as experience,” he says. “Let’s not get mad about it, let’s enjoy it.”

 

Just this year, at age 36, Slay has become the youngest comedian to ever perform at the legendary Grand Ole Opry Stage in his adopted hometown of Nashville. He’s notched three appearances in front of “my people” at the Holy Land of country music in less than six months and has also been tapped to host CMA Festival’s Forever Country Stage in June to keep fans laughing between appearances by the biggest stars in country music. 

 

The breakout comedian’s Comedy Central Stand-Up Featuring premieres May 16, and he is also set for a second appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this summer. He’s also primed to appear live at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest 2019 in San Francisco, all continuing the momentum from previous sets on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, andLaughs on Fox;regular stints on The Bob & Tom Radio Show; and a host of live appearances across the country.
