Puttin' On Airs is a podcast where two good ol boys from the rural South learn about and analyze fancy people and their culture. Join redneck comedians Trae Crowder and Corey Ryan Forrester as they try and make sense of the world's bougie-est bullsh*t. So if you wanna find out what the Queen does all damn day, or why rich people love makin' horses have sex, or what the elite and white trash have in common (it's more than you think), and you wanna hear it all in the syrupy sorghum drawl of two country ass comic buddies, then check out Puttin' On Airs.
Puttin On Airs answers the question you’ve all been asking yourself: When am I gonna hear two dudes who sound like Slingblade give me a history lesson on Marie Antoinette? If Drunk History had a baby with 2 Bears 1 Cave, the result would be Puttin On Airs. Half redneck. Half posh. 100% fun and entertaining!
About the Host
Host Name: Corey Ryan Forrester and Trae Crowder
Host Residence Country: United States
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.
Corey’s love for comedy started when he was just 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 16, Corey worked up the nerve to do his 1st open mic (lying about his age to be admitted into the club). He 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 (seriously), flower delivery boy, hotel maid, college textbook reseller and hay baler. At one point in his career, he ran a family bakery with his mother where he was considered the “Head Quiche Chef” and on a another side note, his soups were legendary.
