“I’m originally from a small town in Tennessee,” Billy Wayne Davis tells an audience. He now lives in L.A. “When I tell people in Los Angeles that, it confuses them. ‘Oh, like Chattanooga?’ No, you have no idea do you? When I was in fifth grade my older cousin went to field party, got into a fight and killed a dude. When I was in high school, the dead dude’s sister asked me to the prom. That’s a small town, you guys.”

Davis declined the invite.

“My dad said, ‘I don’t know. She might have forgotten, but I don’t think her daddy did.’ People in the South love that joke so much. People outside the South get sad. People from the South are like, ‘That’s just two good dads right there.’”

Davis has appeared on Last Comic Standing, Conan and more
