Larry The Cable Guy Background
Born Daniel Lawrence Whitney, Larry The Cable
Guy spent the first 16 years of his life on his family's farm in Nebraska, raising pigs. Even though they were busy with the
farm life, they still had room in their lives for entertainment.
His father, a guitar player and a preacher, had performed
with the Everly Brothers while his mother enjoyed working on weekends impersonating Elvis.
Larry and his family eventually
left the family farm and moved to West Palm Beach, Florida, where he formed a signature brand of quick, one-liner comedy that
was very much appreciated in his circle of friends. And it was in 1986 when Larry responded to a dare and walked into a comedy
club to showcase his act. Larry was drawn to the opportunity to perform on stage, and within two years, he quit his bellhop
job at the Ramada Inn to pursue comedy.
But that didn't mean Larry the Cable Guy happened overnight. He cut his teeth
as a comedian by addressing topics like day-to-day living, family and ex-girlfriends. To grow his reputation, he performed
at small clubs and wound up finding regular work as a DJ on the radio.
In 1991, he gained ground by regularly calling
into nationwide radio shows, posing as different characters that he had invented for his stage routine. One of his characters
was a southerner who worked as a TV cable installer. The character was introduced on the Bob and Tom Show, a nationally known
syndicated radio show. On an impulse, he called in and punctuated his stint with, "Get 'er done." Larry the Cable Guy had
He said, "It was about a three-minute bit of my act and it was killing. So I started doing it on the radio.
And when you're a comedian, you wanna sell tickets. So that's what I started doing. I found something that I could do onstage
and I could do good. I started going out as Larry the Cable Guy, because it was fun for me to write for because I grew up
Larry The Cable Guy had found his foothold on the comic scene. He also discovered a cast of characters who
shared a passion for the "regular Joe" shtick. He met Jeff Foxworthy in the mid-1980s, and the two "riffed on old country
As Foxworthy's career boomed, so did Larry The Cable Guy's. He soon had a regular gig on Foxworthy's show,
Country Countdown Show. And eventually, Larry The Cable Guy syndicated his routine to radio stations across North America.
But his breakthrough moment happened when he was invited to tag along with Foxworthy and comedian Bill Engvall on the Blue
Collar Comedy Tour.
The show was a huge success! It grossed $15 million and DVD sales topped off at one million. Lord,
I Apologize, Larry The Cable Guy's debut full-length CD followed.
It wasn't long after that everywhere you looked you
would see or hear the antics of Larry The Cable Guy. His performances flooded the talk shows from The Tonight Show to Live
with Regis and Kelly. Git-R-Done, his DVD special, came out in 2005 and claimed platinum status. The Right to Bear Arms arrived
that same year and stole the Billboard's comedy album of the year slot. It additionally premiered at No. 7 on the charts.
Blue Collar Comedy Tour also was revived multiple times as well, snagging big ratings. The 2006 Washington, D.C. performance
even gave them a Grammy Award.
Larry The Cable Guy is still out and about today, making people laugh around the world.
