His given name is Dan Whitney, and as a comic things didn't quite pan out. Then he created a character named Larry the Cable Guy, and he became a huge comedian with the help of morning radio (doing character voices for a variety of shows) and a friend he met during Atlanta Braves spring training games named Jeff Foxworthy. Larry the Cable Guy hooked audiences up with laughter across the country in the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and is still at it. Ahead of his Milwaukee show at The Riverside December 1st, I talk with Larry about his Wisconsin-native wife (and how their wedding - the least fancy wedding ever - only cost $185), how he got started, his love of golf and country life, how he almost hit a home run at Miller Park, and where he has beers on layaway (hint: it's somewhere in Wisconsin.) He also has an excellent observation on the difference between rock bands and comedians. And he didn't have to apologize for a single joke in this one!
