Called "armed and dangerous" by the New York Daily News, he has also been honored as "Funniest Male Stand-up Comic of the Year" by the American Comedy Awards.

Audiences around the country recognize Slayton from his scene-stealing roles in such as "Get Shorty," "Ed Wood," "Bandits" and "Dreamgirls." Most recently, he released his own hour-long special on Showtime, and had a guest starring role on Maron. Other television appearances include The Tonight Show and Politically Incorrect, as well as on HBO in Comic Relief and his own stand-up special. He was also a series regular on the HBO series Mind of a Married Man, and appeared in the critically acclaimed film, "The Rat Pack."

Slayton's distinctive gravelly voice has often been heard on animated shows like Dr. Katz and Family Guy, as well as many popular radio shows across the country, including "Howard Stern," "Kevin & Bean" and "Tom Leykis."
