Clay Foley loves being a comedian.

Whether he's poking fun at fellow vegans or blithely recounting his decade as an animal cruelty investigator, Clay's eyes say, "Can you believe we're doing this?" That gratitude - alongside clever punchlines, inventive props, and a compelling stage presence - has earned Clay a spot among the country's most interesting comics.

Comedy to the Rescue is the culmination of Clay's years working in both animal welfare and stand-up comedy. The tour spans the country raising money for all types of animal charities.

Clay lives in Illinois with his wife and an ever-growing cast of rescued pets. Learn more at
