Dusty Slay's Homegrown Stand Up Showcase

When: Fri., Nov. 15, 10 p.m. 2013

If you’ve ever wanted to have your laugh recorded for a stand-up special on Comedy Central, here is your chance (kinda). Winner of the 2013 City Paper’s Best Local Comic award, Dusty Slay plans to record his next show for a comedy video and album. Chucktown locals and Charleston Stand-Up Competition finalists Hunter Gardner and Danny Green open the show. “I want to have people forget their problems from the week,” says Slay. “It’s going to be a show that your grandmother can go to without being offended, and a young guy can leave without being disappointed that there weren’t any dirty jokes.” The homegrown show will have some new jokes but expect to hear some of Slay’s classic material. If you haven’t seen him live, expect deadpan deliveries and observational humor. Slay does have one requirement for the audience, however: “I’d prefer that people don’t yell at me.”
