The last time this "Git-R-Done" comic performed in the Tri-Cities was in 2006, the same year he toured with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engval and Ron White in the Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
Since then, he's been in several movies, played host to his own CMT Christmas show, released a few more albums and was roasted on Comedy Central earlier this year.
Larry told the Herald in 2006 that his comic material comes from his family. And no one is spared, from his grandma to the babies. He gears his humor to a working-class audience who seem to relate.
Larry grew up on a farm in Nebraska where he helped his father raise pigs until he was 15. In 1978, his family moved to West Palm Beach, Fla., where he lived on the wrong side of the tracks. It was there he supposedly picked up his Southern drawl and got his first stand-up gigs at the Comedy Corner.
Some critics say his comedy is racist and homophobic. Larry prefers to explain his act as just plain stupid, as he said during the opening of his Right to Bare Arms show in 2005, "I guaran-doggone-tee-it" it's going to be a good time.
