Interview: Trae Crowder, the ‘Liberal Redneck’ comedian

Comedian Trae Crowder, know to his fans as the “Liberal Redneck,” grew up poor on the Tennessee-Kentucky border. He says he did not know he was poor because so was everyone else who lived in Clay County. Crowder grew up in a broken family and was raised mostly by his dad. His mother was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. He says his sense of humor was not unusual among his peers, who often joked about their not so great childhoods. He was 12 years old when he saw the Chris Rock “Bigger and Blacker” special on TV and decided he wanted to do stand-up comedy. Crowder made his debut in 2010 at Sidesplitters, a Knoxville comedy club.
