Smart bets: wellRED Comedy Tour

North Carolina remains under fire for House Bill 2. Congress repeatedly fails to pass gun-control measures. And there’s a large enough group of people not offended by Donald Trump to make him a presidential candidate. Meanwhile, on social media, the self-proclaimed “Liberal Redneck” comedian Trae Crowder has amassed millions of views skewering the thought processes that have led to all this. His politically fueled videos and blog — which he co-authors with longtime friends and comedy tour mates Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester — aren’t all giggles and one-liners, though.  Just as he doesn’t temper his Southern drawl, Crowder delivers his insight without masking the exasperation that comes from paying attention. The trio of stand-up comics cover these issues and lighter, day-to-day subject matter at New Mountain on Thursday, July 7, with shows at 7 and 9 p.m. $20. newmountainavl.com. Photo courtesy of the wellRED Comedy Tour
