Stand-up comedian Dusty Slay grew up poor on Lot 8 of a mobile home neighborhood in Opelika, Alabama, with a love for classic country and rock and a career history peppered with jobs like waiting tables and selling pesticides. 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 1970s Bob Seger track—it’s just Dusty.
He talks about universal truths and their absurdity…taking that simple truth to its highest level and bringing everyone to the middle of the aisle for some laughs in the process.
“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.”
At 36, Slay has become the youngest comedian to ever perform on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage in his adopted hometown of Nashville. To date, he’s logged a dozen appearances in front of “his people” on the historic stage in the last couple of years. He has been asked by the CMA to host their festival’s Forever Country Stage to keep fans laughing between appearances by the biggest stars in country music.
The breakout comedian has appeared on Comedy Central’s Stand-Up Featuring and is set for a third appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. In 2019, he joined Comedy Central’s Clusterfest and has previously performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Comic Standing, and Laughs on Fox in addition to regular stints on “The Bob & Tom Radio Show” and a host of live appearances across the country.
