As an observer of life, pointing out the humor in modern culture, Chad Prather has built a loyal following, sold out theaters with his one-man shows and has been featured on Fox News and CNN, among other major national outlets. He has appeared internationally from Moscow to the Ivory Coast. He may also be one of the most important topical humorists of these turbulent political times, as evidenced by the more than 600,000,000 views and counting that he has received on Facebook.
A humanitarian throwing wicked punchlines. A musician whose songs trigger laughter and inspire wisdom. A “modern-day Will Rogers.” A selfconfessed lover of slapstick who reflects on the state of the world from the driver’s seat of his truck on social media. A proud Texan and patriotic American whose role models include George Carlin, Robin Williams, and Bill Hicks. A comedian who only rarely has set foot in comedy clubs and yet has made millions laugh on social media, on TV and on theater stages.
Today, what you see when you watch Prather onstage, in his driver’s-seat soliloquies or on his new website PoliticalCowboy.com, is exactly who he is. His candor and approachability, his perfect balance between controversy and just plain silliness … it’s all him. Like his spiritual predecessor Will Rogers, he is a storyteller with a knack for speaking truth and wrapping it in humor.
Bottom line? “I’m a comedian that uses stories, philosophy, politics and music,” Prather sums up. “I’m George Carlin without the F-bombs. I talk about things that everybody has dealt with at some level by wrapping truth in humor. All I want is for people to come and see me, listen, laugh about life for an hour and a half and leave feeling better than when they came in the door.
In other words, Chad Prather has reached his lifelong goal of bringing people together through laughter rather than pull them further apart. He just might be exactly what we all need these days.
