Tonight the wife and I will go see the Liberal Redneck.

I’ve not been to a comedy club in years. It’s just not something I do on a regular basis, but every now and then someone comes along that I’ll venture out to see in person. Trae Crowder, also known as the Liberal Redneck, is one of those comedians. Trae exploded onto the scene some four months ago when one of his YouTube videos on the subject of transgenders and bathrooms went viral:

That caught my attention so I subscribed to his YouTube channel and since then he’s gone on to become very popular with us liberals for obvious reasons. He’s also doing a regular video for the New York Daily News.

Here’s another one from his YouTube channel:

Needless to say, his newfound attention has created new opportunities for him including a tour with a couple of his fellow southern liberals they’re calling the wellRED comedy tour. In addition to Trae we’ll be seeing Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester tonight at Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle in Royal Oak. There’s still quite a few seats left so if you’re in the area and looking for something to do tonight you can still get in on this.

I often joke that I come from a long line of rednecks, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I sometimes worry about how little distance there is between me and my heritage. Trae makes me feel better about that as he shows that even rednecks can be liberals despite what the stereotype would have you believe.

Here’s one more just because:

  1. I hope that was an enjoyable evening. Trae Crowder demonstrates to me, that a lot of the crap associated with the old confederacy has little to do with most of them and a lot to do with 1%ers talking smack at the country club.

  2. It was a good show and we had a great time. Even got a moment to chat with Trae and shake his hand after the show. I told him about how my redneck heritage has always given me a small amount of anxiety, but that he and his buddies showed me I can embrace my heritage without becoming the stereotype.

    One thing going to the show taught me is that there’s a lot of liberals out there who don’t look like that stereotype either. Whole lot of folks who were transplanted southerners and liberals at the show. In all the show lasted just over an hour and a half including a short Q&A session with all three comedians at the end.

  3. Good, and hearing about the audience is a heartening thing, best I’ve heard since hearing that some “Brownbackistanis” lost in the Kansas primaries.
