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:
