Born in Pawnee City, Neb., Larry first dipped into the entertainment industry by doing call-in phone calls to numerous radio stations across the country. He then became so popular, he took his act on the road an eventually recorded his first CD, Lord, I Apologize, in 2001, which sold over 500,000 copies and ranked atop of the Billboard comedy chart. His next four albums also charted No. 1, which meant seven of his nine albums were No. 1, three of which were certified gold.
Larry then recorded his first stand-up DVD, Larry the Cable Guy: Git-R-Done in 2003, but it was the following year that those who never heard of the funny redneck, took notice.
Larry, along with fellow comedians Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White released a live stand-up movie titled Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie, which was taped a year earlier in Phoenix, Ariz. The movie grossed more than $15 million and when premiered on Comedy Central, at the time it was the highest rated movie in the channel’s history. The DVD sold more than 4 million copies thus followed a sequel, Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again in 2004 that went on to become the third most watched show on Comedy Central. If that wasn’t enough, the foursome returned for a third installment in 2006 called Blue Collar Comedy Tour, One For The Road. The trilogy became so popular the WB Network signed the boys for a television series, Blue Collar TV.
In 2006, Larry starred in his first feature film Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector as Larry portrays a municipal restaurant health inspector. Two other films Larry featured in were Delta Farce in 2007 and Witless Protection in 2008.
He was also the voice of Mater in the Golden Globe winning animated feature film Cars from Disney/Pixar. Cars was released on June 9, 2006 and opened at No. 1 at the box office and grossed over 200 million dollars domestically. Larry continued to be the voice of Mater in Cars Toons: Mater’s Tall Tales and Cars 2 last year, which also debuted No. 1 after opening weekend.
Larry recently starred in Tooth Fairy 2, which was a direct-to-video movie sequel to Tooth Fairy.
Add a Christmas special on CMT, a roast on Comedy Central and his autobiographical book GIT-R-DONE that debuted No. 26 on the New York Times bestseller list in 2005.
His latest venture came in February with Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy on the History Channel. The travelogue series sends the blue-collar funny man on a coast-to-coast road trip hunting down all the things that make this country great—the people, the places and everything.
