Comedians are used to being the funniest people in the room, but that doesn't mean they're the happiest.
DJ Pryor knows all about using stand-up comedy to process the stresses of life — whether it's growing up as the child of a teenage mother, losing loved ones or working menial jobs at Walmart.
But he's also seen how these experiences can be used for good: turning trials into moments of shared humanity that make people feel more connected. And after a recent video of a conversation he had with his toddler went viral, the Clarksville-based comic is now bringing his uniquely energetic style of comedy to a worldwide audience.
Join DJ Pryor for a conversation with WPLN's Emily Siner about laughter, parenthood and newfound fame.
When: Saturday, Aug. 24, at Nashville Public Radio's Podcast Party
