Larry the Cable Guy - rise of the redneck
Before Larry the Cable Guy came into existence, there was Daniel Whitney. The comedian began his entertainment career performing on the stand-up circuit in the 1990s and became a frequent voice on popular radio shows of the day, including The Ron and Ron Show, The Todd and Tyler Show and many must-listen morning shows across the states. Gaining some success for his stand-up sets, Whitney later introduced several characters into his act. One of his characters, Larry, an outspoken redneck with more than a few opinions to share, became one of his most popular. After realising that he’d found his signature character, he began performing as Larry full time.
A stereotypical southerner, from his trucker hat and blue jeans, right down to his love for the Lord, Larry the Cable Guy might hover on the boundary of good taste, but his snappy apologies and interjections ensure even the most razor-sharp of jokes don’t offend anyone in particular too much. If you think you can brave this loveable brute in person, find Larry the Cable Guy tickets for a venue near you online at StubHub.
Stand-up specials and mainstream success
Larry the Cable Guy became a popular pundit on American discussion shows, as well as frequently popping up on Comedy Central Roasts, laying scorn to the latest celebrity to brave the stage. His questionable checked shirts and distinctly redneck repertoire are almost as recognisable as his catchphrases. If Larry’s got one thing to say, it’s “Git-R-Done!”.
Although he can regularly be seen playing against other comedians, Larry continues to be taken out on stage on tour to deliver brand new sets of scathing humour to the masses. With numerous comedy albums released on CD and DVD now on general release, it’s easy to get up to speed on the antics and history of this classic comedian that provides plenty of belly laughs. Whitney has continued to perform exclusively as Larry for years now, meaning it’s hard to define the line between man and creation. Larry has frequently popped up to front shows outside of the usual stand-up show or comic sitcom.
His travelogue series have proved some of the most popular, with Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy proving to be a massive hit with audiences, earning a huge audience for its debut on the History Channel. Larry’s distinctive southern drawl can also be heard regularly on animated shows and motion pictures.
