With a name like Rusty, I didn’t have a lot of career options. It was either stand up comedy or be relegated to a life of carrying tiki torches as an accountant for the alt-right. I am happily married to the last one night stand I ever had. My wife is an amazing, supportive, beautiful, caring partner…and she will leave me one day. This knowledge coupled with my growing questions surrounding my own sexuality keeps me up at night – not only wondering what kind of guy she’ll find, but what kind of guy will I end up with?
Memphis-born comic, Nerd Culture Enthusiast, and Black Nerd Power Podcast Host,
Richard Douglas Jones started performing at open mics in Memphis to recover from
depression, after a succession of hapless happenings left him more than slightly
misanthropic. He found deliverance in comedy and audiences found his wildly
inappropriate and caustic wit hilarious. Both a nice guy and a dubious miscreant, his
delivery is a mash up of incisive insights on everyday life, Nerd Culture from a Black
POV, dating, sex, politics, and race.
