Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

You might have seen Dusty Slay on “Jimmy Kim­mel Live” a few months ago telling this gag about what a poor child­hood he had: When his mother would tell him they were go­ing to have ice cream, she’d poor milk into a bowl, call him into the room, then shrug and say, “Well, you’re too late.”

Slay’s stand- up act walks his au­di­ences through his child­hood in the trailer park, his adult years in the work­force and as an oc­ca­sional black­out drunk.

He’ll play The Com­edy Catch, 1400 Mar­ket St., tonight through Satur­day, June 14-16.

Born in Alabama, his par­ents di­vorced when he was 2. He says there was a cus­tody bat­tle, his mom lost and he had to go live with her. Slay says, “When I was kid, my dad asked me if I wanted to go to col­lege or if I wanted a pool. Man, I love that pool.”

In ad­di­tion to Kim­mel’s show, Slay has ap­peared on “Last Comic Stand­ing,” “Laughs on FOX” and he was a fea­tured co­me­dian on “TMZ.” He’s been in­vited to nu­mer­ous com­edy fes­ti­vals and won the Al­most Fa­mous Com­pe­ti­tion at the Char­lotte Com­edy Zone

in 2014., The Charleston Com­edy Fes­ti­val Stand-Up Com­pe­ti­tion two years in a row and was voted “Best Lo­cal Comic” by read­ers of the Charleston city pa­per in 2013 and 2014.

Tick­ets for tonight’s show are $10; tick­ets Fri­day and Satur­day are $16.
