Though raised in Alabama and now based in Nashville, Dusty Slay is hardly the standard cliché of a “Southern Comedian.” Acting as kind of a midway point between Mitch Hedberg and Jeff Foxworthy, Slay uses razor-sharp writing and a wry sense of self-awareness to give audiences a hilarious look at his trailer park upbringing and people’s assumptions about what it means to be Southern. He has performed his modern brand of down-home humor everywhere from The Tonight Show to CMT to Jimmy Kimmel to Netflix, and also co-hosts the Nateland podcast with fellow Tennessee comic Nate Bargatze. Dusty Slay is one of the best young comedians in any region of the country, and we could not be more excited to welcome him to Corvallis.

Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 case that legalized abortion, is still fiercely debated over forty years later.

Truman Capote’s brilliant, crisp writing, his colorful personality, and his craving for attention peaked in his drive to associate with the heights and riches of the social elite. He was allowed to gaze behind their masks. They gave him what he craved—if not love, at least a surrogate: their fascinated draw to his charisma. All the while, he was gathering material for his long-promised and self-proclaimed masterpiece, Answered Prayers. In TRU, Capote grapples with the self-inflicted loss of some of his super rich friends that he’d gutted through a published excerpt from Answered Prayers. And, it has the mirror effect of baring himself in much the same way as he had revealed them.
