wellRed Comedy Tour: From Dixie with Love Coming to Walton Arts Center

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, March 27, 2018 – The wellRed Comedy Tour: From Dixie with Love brings their brand of smart, hilarious and incisive comedy to Walton Arts Center on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 7 pm.

Tickets are $35.50 plus applicable fees and can be purchased in-person at the Walton Arts Center Box Office, by calling 479.443.5600 or by visiting waltonartscenter.org.

Trae Crowder (The Liberal Redneck), Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester are stand-up comedy and writing partners hailing from Tennessee and Georgia. The trio has been touring nationally to over one hundred sold out clubs and theaters in support of their best-selling book, Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin Dixie Outta the Dark (Simon & Schuster 2016).

Their tour, wellRED: From Dixie With Love, is about celebrating everything great about the South and telling stories from a place of love. It’s about dancing to country music at a gay wedding. It’s about loving your neighbor whether you have the same religion, skin color or sexual preference, as long as they cheer for the same college football team. From Dixie With Love is about leaving behind bigotry, but remembering the fried okra.

Crowder, Morgan and Forrester 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 more. They also co-host their own topical podcast that is recorded weekly from the road and has reached more than 1.5 million downloads internationally since it launched in February 2017.

"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
