Truett Beasley got his nickname when somebody liked his guitar riff and told him it was “killer, Beaz!” He is headlining at Side Splitters this weekend and he was my guest today on the Classic Hits 93.1 Comedy Couch.
For over 30 years, Killer Beaz has been doing stand-up comedy all over the country. He is very popular in the South, which made me curious to know if he changes his act for audiences in the North.
I also knew that Beaz was a good friend of the late Tim Wilson. I used Beaz’s accent as a way to bring up the bit Tim did during my interview with him in January. Beaz said later that he appreciated the opportunity to talk about his friend.
