Trae Crowder (The Liberal Redneck), Drew Morgan and Corey Forrester have firmly established themselves as three of the most exciting new voices in comedy of their generation. Often compared to Carlin and Hicks, or a modern-twist on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the trio of comedians and writers challenge stereotypes and deeply-held beliefs about what is means to grow up humbly in the South. Their unique brand of relatable yet belief-challenging stand-up entertains audiences across the US, including some of the most unexpected cities. Focused on coming together and exploring evergreen social issues, Trae, Corey & Drew are blazing a comedic path to stardom.

In 2016, stand up comedian and writer, Trae Crowder, gained immediate social media viral fame from his series of topical rants as "The Liberal Redneck". With over 165 Million views and appearances on Nightline, MSNBC and ABC, Trae began touring nationally as part of the wellRED comedy tour with partners, Drew Morgan and Corey Forrester. The trio are co-authors of the best-selling book, Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin Dixie Outta The Dark and have found critical success performing to sold-out clubs and theaters in over 200 markets across the country.

Trae, Corey and Drew have been featured guests on The View (ABC), Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO), Nightline (ABC), Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC), CNN Tonight with Don Lemon and various programs on MTV, MSNBC, CNN, BBC, Forbes, Rolling Stone, Fusion, NPR and SiriusXM. They also co-host their own topical weekly podcast recorded on the road, wellRED podcast, which has reached over 2.5 Million downloads internationally.

Trae Crowder is a regular video contributor in partnership with ATTN: for Facebook and formerly, The New York Daily News. The trio are currently in development with a major broadcast network for a scripted sitcom series and a whole bunch of other projects they can't talk about right now because they've gone all Hollywood.

  • Trae Crowder

    Trae Crowder

    Stand-up

    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.

    Recently, Trae has earned 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 six years and now tours nationally as part of the wellRED comedy tour with his writing and drinking partners, Corey and Drew.

  • Drew Morgan

    Drew Morgan

    Stand-up

    Drew Morgan is a stand up comic, writer, and actor based in New York City. He can be seen on any given night in comedy clubs and bars making the funny, often performing at New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Comic Strip Live, and the Creek and the Cave.

    Hailing from rural  East Tennessee, Drew is able to draw on his experiences as a small town boy who has lived in Africa, Australia, Miami, Boston, and (currently)  New York City. Weaving his stories together with observations on culture, religion, and identity, he's like Mark Twain on acid, or just a confused southerner experiencing this thing we call existence. Drew Morgan presents his hilarious perspective without blame for anyone, except everyone. 

    Described as having the "alpha certainty of a football coach, (and) the fulminating zeal of a charismatic preacher," his style is decidedly southern, extremely smart, and charmingly sarcastic. Drew has been featured as part of the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Hoboken Comedy Festival, Scruffy City Comedy Festival, and The Laughing Devil Comedy Festival where he was a semi-finalist. He is a good dancer. 
  • Corey Forrester

    Corey Forrester

    Stand-up

    Corey’s love for comedy started when he was 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 age 16, he worked up the nerve to do his first open mic (lying about his age to be admitted into the club).

    Corey 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, flower delivery boy, hotel maid, college textbook reseller and hay bailer. At one point in his career, he ran a family bakery with his mother where he was considered the “Head Quiche Chef”.

    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.
