8/14: Celeb of the Week - Larry the Cable Guy

Git R Done! There are few phrases I hate more in the modern vernacular. Larry and his band of miscreants have forced their "redneck" humor upon America for too long. Is Jeff Foxworthy really on tv? How is this possible? They might as well make a tv show showing me taking a dump. Atleast it would be funnier.

Larry the Cable Guy is the worst of this group. First of all, does he actually install cable? Most comedians go by a first and last name. Is his comedy so unsuccessful that he still needs to keep his day job?

The real reason I hate Larry is because I have constantly been seeing ads for his movies on tv his week. I assume it is a straight to video release. Wow, that puts him in great compnay with the Olsen twins.

Larry the Cable Guy: I hate you.

american gets what america wants. they love their 'white trash guy' humor. i will never get it. i will also never understand how nascar and country music is so popular, but i believe these phenomenons go hand in hand.

The funny thing is, the guy isn't even a redneck. They were raggin on him on Opie and Anthony a while back, playing some old bits from when he was just starting out, before he had discovered this redneck "schtick". He sounded just like any other number of bad comics. It's all just an act (as if you didn't know).

Also, iamunstoppable : not ALL Americans love "white trash guy". But certainly people who can relate to that lifestyle do in fact like him, and as much as some of you would like to pretend that the south is not in fact a part of this country... it's apretty big portion. You don't understand how Nascar and Country music are so popular? Really? O r you just don't like them and feel superior to everyone who does?

I don't like them either, by the way, but I can undersatnd why people do. Just like I can understand how people probably hate baseball and rock music.

alot of people in the US love redneck humor. americans, in general, connect with the white trash humor. GIT'ER'DONE!

it's not funny. it's sad. i definitely feel superior to those people. i have a gold podium that im standing on right now too.

i will never understand watching a car race. (maybe IRL can be cool though, cause they have actual courses). but its like golf. maybe being involved is fun.. but watching.. well, give me the few highlight moments and im all caught up.

country music is awful. that's a scientific fact.

I'm not proud of this.

But I once watched a Larry the Cable Guy stand up routine on TV, and I was laughing my ass off.

I don't know why, but I did.

I thought I was gonna be the only one. LTCG's "sister and the mole" routine is hilarious. I wouldn't go see the movie, based on the preview crap, but his stand up is pretty funny... and I know my white trash. (I'm laughing pretty hard now, dudes)

I hate it when someone claims "I know my ____________" I want to say, "shut the f*** up!"

I'm down with yer opinion of NASCAR but "country music" is far fromma "phenomenon"...

The Cable-Guy and Foxworthy are simply "formula" acts that milk a shtick fer what it's worth...Those guys ain't "comics"...Carlin and Pryor were comics...and, I might add, relevant..
