“The Liberal Rednecks changed not only my thinking, but my way of thinking about people. Before them, I didn’t realize I had made judgments. It’s funny as hell, thoughtful and moving for reasons you would never think you’d be moved by. And go see them on stage, you will be shocked and driven to hear them, but I caution you, wear diapers …you’re gonna need em.” 

– Whoopi Goldberg

 

 

“It’s become so convenient to label places ‘blue states’ and ‘red states’. Those terms ignore millions of folks who live in these places. People like Trae, Drew and Corey …don’t get me wrong, these boys are country as hell, but they step to the table with fresh voices and challenge stereotypes at every turn.”

– George Wallace

 

 

“Take it from this Hillbilly, these rednecks know what they’re talking about. It’s the most fun you’ll have without beer & fireworks!”

– Morgan Spurlock

 

Trae Crowder

Trae Crowder grew up in Celina, TN, a town sometimes described as having “more liquor stores than traffic lights” (2-0 as of the last count). Like most people from the deep rural south, Trae grew up with an affinity for literature, film, blacks and gays. In 1998, at the age of 12 and after seeing Chris Rock on HBO, he decided he wanted to be a comedian.

Trae first gained national attention (or notoriety, depending on your viewpoint) for his “Liberal Redneck” series of viral videos. He has been performing his particular brand of Southern-fried intellectual comedy in the Southeast for the past nine years and now of course, tours nationally with his writing and drinking partners, Corey and Drew.

Drew Morgan

Drew Morgan is the first person in his family to go into comedy …his act has been described as “Mark Twain on acid,” and that pretty much gets at it. Hailing from Sunbright, Tennessee, which has a population of about 597 good people and 3 really shitty ones, he was raised by a preacher and a librarian. This explains Drew’s intellectualism and constant state of existential crisis. Drew’s humor is sly and biting and you’ll notice he has a big chip on his shoulder …it’s BBQ flavored.

One more thing
…he’s a really good dancer.   

Corey Ryan Forrester

Corey’s love for comedy started when he was just a toddler watching Carson (and then Leno) from a blanket on the floor next to his daddy Dale. By 2nd grade, he had already informed his teachers that he was going to be a comedian and didn’t ever consider another profession.

At 16, Corey worked up the nerve to do his 1st open mic (lying about his age to be admitted into the club). He spent the next decade hawking jokes in dingy bars and comedy clubs at night then waking up to do random jobs to supplement his income. A house painter, retail associate, motorcycle salesman, urine sample collector (seriously), flower delivery boy, hotel maid, college textbook reseller and hay baler. At one point in his career, he ran a family bakery with his mother where he was considered the “Head Quiche Chef” and on a another side note, his soups were legendary.

Corey’s stand-up blends humor and common sense into a high energy act that is as full of as many silly faces and goofy jokes as it is emotionally driven tangents. Under his PBR hat is a giant head, and under that are surprisingly thought-provoking rants on society, culture, and politics.

Southern Born and Southern RED.

Stand-up comedy and writing partners, Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester are touring nationally in support of their book, Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin Dixie Outta the Dark.

Being wellRED is about celebrating all that’s good about the South while leading the Redneck Revolution and standing proudly blue in a sea of red.

The Liberal Redneck Manifesto

Smart, hilarious, and incisive, the Liberal Rednecks confront the Confederacy of Dumbasses, tackling everything people think they know about the South, the good, the bad, the glorious, and the shameful, in a laugh-out-loud funny and lively manifesto for the rise of a New South. Home to some of the best music, athletes, soldiers, whiskey, waffles, and weather the country has to offer, the South has also been bathing in backward bathroom bills and other bigoted legislation that Trae has targeted in his Liberal Redneck videos, videos which have gone viral garnering well over 50 million views.

Perfect for fans of Stuff White People Like, I Am America (And So Can You), and Dear White People, The Liberal Redneck’s Manifesto skewers political and religious hypocrisies in witty stories and hilarious graphics—such as the Ten Commandments of the New South—and much more! While celebrating the South as one of the richest sources of American culture, this entertaining book issues a wake-up call, and a reminder that the South’s problems and dreams aren’t that far off from the rest of America’s.
