An armchair philosopher, musician, and observational humorist, Prather is often referred to as “the modern-day Will Rogers.” Originally from Augusta, Ga. and now calling Fort Worth, Texas home, he is a fast-talking combination of Lewis Grizzard and Jeff Foxworthy. Prather grew up working with horses and is often recognized by his ever-present cowboy hat.

His social media viral video views are counted in the hundreds of millions. Many recognize him from his fast talking, rapid fire rants from the front seat of his truck. CNN has labeled him the “Pick-up Pundit” and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has called Prather “supernaturally articulate.” He is known for his comedic family stories told from an adult perspective onstage.

Prather has made numerous appearances on Fox News, CNN, A&E, The Blaze, MSN and has been featured in magazines from Southern Living to Nash Country Weekly. He is the host of Ride TV’s It’s My Backyard, and just recently finished his wildly successful 2016 Kings of Cowtown Comedy Tour.

Prather has sold-out theatres all over America and is one of the country’s fastest rising and most talked about comedians and entertainers.
