Trae Crowder first came across our radar as a comedian at the first Orlando Indie Comedy Fest. His standout performances there – mostly about the struggles of being a left-leaning liberal with a pronounced Tennessee drawl – hinted at big things to come for the young performer. And after exploding on the internet during the 2016 campaign season, he came back as a headliner for the following year’s festival. This week, he brings his writing partners from last year’s book The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin’ Dixie Out of the Dark
, Drew Morgan and Corey Forrester, to the Improv for a full night of Southern-fried, open-eyed comedy that should appeal to anyone who’s ever had to defend pickled okra and democratic socialism in the same conversation.
