Don’t ask Trey Toler about the size of his penis

Don’t ask gay Atlanta comedian Trey Toler if he pleasures himself, eats Taco Bell, listens to gay music or the size of his junk. If you must during his upcoming gig at Laughing Skull Lounge in Midtown – Trey Toler & Friends opens on Thursday — he could very well shout down your gay ass.

His quick-witted, high-energy approach earned him a spot on GQ’s feature on Atlanta’s Best Comedians Under 30 and keeps a little gay flowing through segments on the Regular Guys radio show on Rock 100.5. It also helped him nab a profile in Creative Loafing:

What topics are you tired of hearing from fledgling comedians?
[Without hesitation] Masturbation. Taco Bell. How they like to get high. How big their penis is. I hate it when they ask the audience questions like “Who’s drinking? Where are the pot-smokers at?”

How has it saved your life?
If I wasn’t doing stand-up comedy, I’d still probably be horribly depressed and still in conflict with my sexuality. Prior to comedy, I thought I was too straight to be gay, and too gay to be straight. I grew up in Marietta, never around any people I knew were gay. I like exercising and running, but not sports. I like heavy metal, I don’t listen to stereotypical gay music. If I’m a guy, I’m either supposed to go out and fuck tons of girls, or go out and fuck tons of guys. But I was always more attracted to personality. By doing comedy, I found a way to embrace who I am. I found the acceptance that I guess I’d been searching for 24 years.
