Dream BIG - You Could End Up On Jimmy Kimmel


About 4 years ago, I was invited by my friend Allison to see her friend Dusty at The Comedy Zone.

If I recall correctly, it was a cold night and I almost said no, but she said “he’s pretty funny; let’s go support him” ...so off we went.

We stopped in Southend to grab dinner before the show with Dusty. He was pretty quiet. I assumed he was nervous and preparing for what was about to happen. I know I HATE getting on stage in front of people. Like...HATE! Probably why I am not a comedian (because that's all that's stopping me.....kinda).

Allison had informed me that Dusty had quit his job in Charleston, SC and had entered a contest at The Comedy Zone and his dream was to make it as a comedian. I thought “well...that’s cool”. Y’all know I’m a cheerleader for dream chasers.

We went and saw Dusty. Blunt with a dry sense of humor. I recall laughing until my sides hurt. He steered clear of awkward dating and sex jokes, which I appreciated. He was funny.

That night Dusty won the contest.

Fast forward to 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣8️⃣. Guess where Dusty is? Performing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE tonight!

Yes yall, I’m serious.

I noticed on social media Dusty has changed his occupation to 'Stand Up Comedian'. See kids... if you can dream it.... you can do it. And I’m here to tell you, he is funny. If you get a chance to see Dusty Slay, do it!

In case you missed the show, here ya go:

Ok....go chase YOUR dream! It’s never too late.
