Calling himself the "Liberal Redneck," Trae Crowder is a Tennessee-native comedian, who rants on YouTube about politics and current events — everything from Trump to Black Lives Matter to transgender bathrooms — but from a surprisingly leftist point of view. Attracting millions of hits, those viral videos led to the wellRED Comedy Tour (which sold out last month at Largo), featuring fellow Tennessee stand-up comics Corey Ryan Forrester and Drew Morgan, and to the trio's 2016 book, The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin' Dixie Outta the Dark. Crowder has appeared on Real Time With Bill Maher and The View, and regularly as the resident "Hillbilly-in-Chief" on the New York Daily News' YouTube channel. Crowder is even developing a Fox sitcom based on his life.
