Drinking the Haterade


Comedian Bobby Slayton likes his job, but it's not his favorite thing. "My main love is staying home and watching porno," he says. "Then drinking some wine and seeing my dog. And then watching The Sopranos. But as far as getting paid, I'd have to say stand-up is my main love." Slayton says he finds ideas for jokes while walking around the city. Most of the time, he'll stumble on something that really pisses him off. "I'm just not a people person," he says. "I like to rag on the usual targets — gays, blacks, women, Jews."
