Overview

BIO:

Slay, who grew up on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, has been making people laugh his whole life. “I’ve always been funny,” he shares. “In school, I was able to make the entire class laugh—but also make the teacher laugh. I knew I could do that. But I never thought, ‘One day I’ll make a living doing this.’ That never crossed my mind.” Based in his adopted hometown of Nashville, the road warrior sights both the convenience Music City offers logistically when spending so much time on the road as well as a love of country music for the decision. 

For Dusty Slay, the challenge right now is staying connected to the absurdity of regular, day-to-day life while chasing the comedian’s dream. “I’ve contemplated getting a side job, just to get material,” he laughs. “There’s still so much to talk about from my jobs, my childhood, I feel like I can mine that for many years to come. But if I do write a joke about airports or hotels, it’s still going to be my perspective. It’s still going to be unique.”
