HE’LL SLAY YOU
Dusty Slay plays three shows at Comedy Catch
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.
