Comedian Dusty Slay performs at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Friday, March 29, 2024.
Slay’s show-stealing showcase at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival caught the attention of Hollywood tastemakers in 2018. His sense of humor developed before he even stepped on stage, through over a decade of working thankless blue collar jobs. At the age of 18, Slay dropped out of community college. At 19, his plans to join the army were foiled by an arrest. By 21 he moved from his hometown of Opelika, AL to Charleston, SC. There he worked as a waiter and pesticide salesman for over a decade while moonlighting as an obscure, often drunk, open mic comedian.
It wasn’t until he quit drinking in 2012 that Slay started to take comedy and his unique talent seriously. His smooth baritone voice and relatable stories about growing up poor in a trailer park quickly made him a local Charleston favorite. After being voted Best Local Comedian and winning the Charleston Stand Up Comedy Competition – both two years in a row, his colleagues encouraged him to move to LA. However, Dusty wanted to try to make it in comedy on his own terms: by living the South, without getting too far away from the home that grounded him.
Today, Slay has close to half a million Tik Tok followers, Four Late Night appearances, a Comedy Central set, and a Netflix Half Hour Special under his belt. He enjoys selling out comedy clubs across America on weekends, then chilling out at home in Nashville with his wife Hannah and daughter Daisy.
