What topics does Larry the Cable Guy typically like to cover?
Larry the Cable Guy is famously known for being part of the Blue Collar Comedy group. He toured from 2000 to 2006 alongside other members, Ron White, Jeff Foxworthy, and Bill Engvall. Each member places his own peculiar twist on redneck humor, and each has their own sort of style and character they bring to the table. Jeff Foxworthy is the older redneck dad, where Larry the Cable Guy is the crazy cousin. Ron White seems to joke on all the absurdities of it, and likes to mix in a lot of pop culture, whereas Bill Engvall observes it all as the outsider not sure if he belongs in the first place.
These characters represent the fullness of the Blue Collar Comedy group, and perhaps why they are so successful. Larry the Cable Guy is a character comedian, meaning everything is filtered through him as a character and not necessarily a real person. It is similar to Jim Carey in the 90’s or Sacha Baron Cohen and his satirical foreign persona, Borat.
But Larry the Cable Guy satirizes redneck comedy. His trope, GIT R Done, is a major part of his silly comedy. One of his major topics is his family and how dysfunctional they are. He also touches on ideas of politics and the United States in a way that can be crude but distressingly true.
And then there is always the good cheap poop joke.
How long is a Larry the Cable Guy show?
Larry the Cable Guy is touring alongside two other acts for the reunion of the Blue Collar Comedy, so his set length is a little shorter than what would be normal as a sole headliner. Expect to see him perform for about 60 minutes.
Are the dates the same?
Larry the Cable Guy has cancelled and changed the schedule of a few big dates. Keep watch on his official website to confirm that your specific date is still on. Tickets are refunded through TicketMaster if the date is rescheduled to a point where you can no longer make the show.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Larry the Cable Guy’s tour?
American Express is offering presales through their entertainment resource platform. You need an American Express card for purchase, but they are servicing the entire tour so it is the obvious option for card carriers.
You can also access presale options through Presale Passwords Info. The resource collects presales from a multitude of places in one intuitive platform.
The final main option is through Ticketmaster directly. Time frames are notoriously tight, and presales only go up a few days before the public onsale, but it is a great option for getting around working with another company. Both American Express and Presale Passwords Info requires purchase through Ticketmaster.

“There are three secrets to Larry the Cable Guy’s act: First, he mines popular culture, at least the lower ends of it, like no other comedian. His bits include a lot about Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, Waffle Houses and Dollar Stores. And scatological subjects.
Second, he spits out jokes rapid-fire. It was impressive how many he fit in – literally hundreds – in his 80-minute routine (plus a 10-minute question-and-answer period) during the first of two shows Saturday.” – John J. Moser of Lehigh valley Music
“If even only a quarter of his stories about his family life are true, he comes from the world’s most red-neck, dysfunctional clan known to man. Every one-liner and tale that comes from his mouth redefine the world of humor. Simply put, he’s exceptionally funny, and he pushes humor boundaries without crossing into vulgarity or the Rated R line.” – Dan Harr of Music News Nashville
“His diarrhea jokes actually were pretty funny, since that tends to be an occasional malady lots of us laugh about after it has passed. He cited pop singer Sheryl Crow, who several years ago, said one way to save the environment was to only use one square of toilet paper. “She’s never been to my grandma’s on Christmas Eve. After that Christmas Eve chili, I use the whole roll, the tube and a coupla pillow cases.” – Diana Nollen of Hoopla Now
