Toni “Dirti Red” Slaughter is a Dayton, OH native. She began her comedy career by performing in a comedy skit as a contestant in the Miss Black America pageant, representing the state of Ohio. The pageant was nationally televised and it was here she gained interest of a host of Hampton Universities comedic alumni. She realized she had a keen ability for telling stories. With her laid-back comedic presence, she gains the attention of her audience by telling clever humorous stories of her upbringing and relationships.
Toni went on to be a regular at the Comedy Act Theater in Atlanta and working as an MC at Joker Comedy Café in Dayton, OH.

It was at the height of her career she decided to move to Los Angeles. During her time in LA, she worked with comediennes such as Lavelle Crawford, Gary Owens, and Guy Torrey. She made it her mission to showcase her talents at the world-famous Comedy Store. She later made the decision to return to Dayton with her experiences and talents in tow. She then opened her own comedy room to invite various comediennes from around the country to perform and showcase their talents.
For the last few years, Toni has been reviving her career by making local appearances at the Q’s, Who Got Next, and Nanette Lee’s Phat Tuesday. She is regular in Los Angeles at Hope Flood’s Comics Rock Convention.
