Stand Up Comedy from Dusty Slay


>>Jimmy: OUR NEXT GUEST IS A VERY FUNNY MAN WITH A GREAT COMEDIAN NAME. YOU CAN SEE HIM HEADLINE THE CHARLESTON COMEDY FESTIVAL IN SOUTH CAROLINA ON JANUARY 19TH. MAKING HIS TELEVISION DEBUT, PLEASE WELCOME DUSTY SLAY.>>ALL RIGHT! ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT. WELL, I GREW UP IN A TRAILER PARK WHICH WASN’T THAT FUN. SO I’M NOT SURE WHY THEY CALL IT A PARK. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? THERE WASN’T NO RIDES IN THERE. THERE’S A LOT OF MONEY OUT THERE. A LOT OF DIFFERENT KINDS OF MONEY. YOU KNOW THERE’S LIKE OLD MONEY, NEW MONEY, DRUG MONEY, BLOOD MONEY. WE DIDN’T HAVE ANY OF THAT. WHAT WE HAD WAS GOOD MONEY. THAT’S WHEN YOUR PARENTS BUY YOU SOMETHING YOU DON’T LIKE, THEY GO “WE PAID GOOD MONEY FOR THAT!” GOOD MONEY BUYS THE WORST STUFF TOO. IT’S NEVER ANYTHING GOOD. GOOD MONEY BUYS LIKE AIR BRUSHED T-SHIRTS WITH YOUR NAME ON IT, FROM THE COUNTY FAIR. I HAD A LOT OF T SHIRTS WITH WOLVES ON THEM GROWING UP. MY MOM THOUGHT I’D LOOK GOOD IN A WOLF T SHIRT. SHE WAS LIKE THE MORE WOLVES THE BETTER. PUT THEM ALL OVER THAT THING. MAYBE PUT A LITTLE MOON ON THAT THING. GIVE THAT WOLF SOMETHING TO HOWL AT. I HAD A HAT GROWING UP THAT JUST HAD MY NAME AIRBRUSHED ACROSS THE TOP. JUST SAID “DUSTY,” RIGHT ACROSS THE TOP. THAT’S JUST SO I WOULDN’T GET KIDNAPPED. KIDNAPPER SEES THAT HAT HE’S LIKE, “NAH HIS FAMILY AIN’T GOT NO MONEY. JUST GIVE HIM THE CANDY. JUST LET HIM HAVE THE CANDY. HE PROBABLY AIN’T HAD CANDY IN A LONG TIME.” I’M OUT THERE TRYING TO GET IN THE VAN. THEY’RE LIKE, “NO, NO. WE ARE KIDNAPPERS.” I’M LIKE, “I KNOW, I’M A KID. TRYING TO GET NAPPED UP IN HERE. I LIVE IN NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE NOW. I LIVE IN NASHVILLE AND LAST DECEMBER WE HAD A TORNADO WARNING AND I WAS LISTENING TO THE RADIO AND THEY WERE TELLING US WHAT TO DO DURING THE TORNADO WARNING BASED ON WHAT KIND OF HOUSE YOU LIVE IN. THEY SAID IF YOU HAVE A HOUSE WITH A BASEMENT, GO INTO THE BASEMENT. IF YOU LIVE IN A HOUSE WITHOUT A BASEMENT, GO INTO A BATHROOM OR A SMALL ROOM. AND THEY WERE LIKE, IF YOU LIVE IN A TRAILER PARK, WE WANT YOU TO GO TO A NEIGHBOR‘S HOUSE OR GO OUTSIDE AND LAY DOWN IN THE DITCH! THAT’S THE REAL NEWS. THEY WERE LIKE “LISTEN, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO TELL YA. HELL, YOU MADE SOME BAD DECISIONS ALONG THE WAY, NOW YOU’VE GOT TO DEAL WITH THIS.” THEY’RE LIKE, “YEAH I KNOW IT’S RAINING OUT THERE AND THAT DITCH IS GOING TO BE FULL OF WATER BUT JUST GET DOWN IN IT. YEAH IT’S DECEMBER, IT’S GOING TO BE COLD. YOU’RE PROBABLY GOING TO GET SICK, BUT JUST GET DOWN IN THERE.” I LIKE THAT THEY THINK THAT THERE’S A DITCH LOCATED NEXT TO EVERY TRAILER PARK. LIKE IT JUST COMES WITH IT. EVERY TRAILER PARK GETS THEIR OWN TORNADO DITCH. NO TRASH IN THIS DITCH UNLESS IT’S WHITE TRASH. WE’RE HAVING A GOOD TIME. I LIKE THAT THE OTHER OPTION THEY GAVE YOU WAS TO GO TO A NEIGHBOR ‘S HOUSE. I DON’T KNOW WHAT KIND OF TRAILER PARKS THEY KNOW ABOUT, BUT AT THE TRAILER PARK I GREW UP IN, MY NEIGHBOR ALSO LIVED IN A TRAILER. IT’S LIKE THEY JUST WANTED US TO MEET UP IN ONE, MAYBE WEIGHT IT DOWN. THAT WAY THE TORNADO COULDN’T CARRY IT AWAY. WE WEREN’T REAL POOR THOUGH, WE JUST DIDN’T HAVE EVERYTHING, YOU KNOW? LIKE I NEVER GOT ICE CREAM GROWING UP. MY MOM USED TO JUST POUR MILK INTO A BOWL, THEN SHE’D CALL ME INTO THE ROOM AND GO, “WELL, YOU’RE TOO LATE.” ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. [ APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: WE’RE GOING TO GET YOU

  1. What? They couldn't get Ricky, the guy who plays the drums with his feet, so they pushed this dude out onto the stage?
    If I had to pick between listening to that man and watching leaves twirl in the wind outside, I'm gonna have to go with the leaves next time.

  2. I enjoyed his jokes- but I also grew up somewhat poor like him and had some of those same situations, so I got why they were funny.

  3. I saw him in person several months ago. He had a killer set. I don't think this was his best material. When he really gets on a roll, his delivery style makes it even funnier.

  4. His whole shtick seems like it was a spur of the moment outfit purchase and he just made a standup act out of it.

  5. I worked at a Restaurant that had stand up comedy every Saturday. Dusty was the headliner and had everyone laughing their asses off. He can't tell his best stories on tv, but in person he is a great comedian.

  6. Awesome!
    I’ve seen this guy in person a bunch of times, and I can tell you the dude is one of my favorite comics. I always have a good time watching him. Congrats Dusty!

  7. Dusty Slay is an awesome comedian! I have seen him in comedy clubs on several occasions. He is a great headlining act! I average seeing a live comedy show weekly, and he is one I do not miss when he comes to town! Down to earth comedy that is not offensive and everyone can enjoy. SO happy you had him on your show… however, he needs more time to showcase his talents when you have him back again!!

  8. Saw him in Chattanooga at the comedy catch… dudes hilarious in person… being from the south a lot of his jokes prolly went over the heads of la types… everyone in my family makes jokes about trailer park folks wearing 80s wolf print shirts.

  9. He is funny and witty on stage; check his material in a comedy club. He is also a nice guy to talk to after his show. Hope his career takes off – comedians who craft their bits, play with words, and tie stories together in a clever way deserve to be recognized.

  10. I love how in the info of the clip of Dusty Slay on Jimmy Kimmel Live it says "About Jimmy Kimmel Live" and proceeds with a paragraph about Jimmy Kimmel Live. Not one mention of Dusty or how to find or follow him on social media.

  11. Growing up in a trailer myself i can confirm during a tornado they tell you to get in the ditch, mine had a drainage culvert that was about 4ft tall and fit 3 people perfectly XD

  12. Wow should not have picked this material for his first time on TV.. bombed it. Dude has way way way way funnier material. Plus you gotta tailor your comedy to the crowd, none of these people have probably ever even visited a trailer park.

  13. Love Dusty! But Jimmy is a coward puppet. His network has their hand so far up his ass they control every hypocritical work that comes out of his mouth.
