Larry The Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and host Reno Collier entertained a sizable crowd of comedy enthusiasts Saturday night at Philips Arena. Each of the three comic stars did about 45 minutes of solo material on the stage in the middle of the Philips Arena floor, then they all appeared together and collaborated for a fifteen minute finale which included answering questions and requests posed by audience members.
Atlanta’s own Jeff Foxworthy is widely known for his redneck jokes, and his act goes well beyond to explore the humour in everyday family interactions and human nature. Foxworthy currently hosts the hit show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, which airs on FOX and is in syndication. One of the most respected and successful comedians in the United States, Foxworthy is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and a best-selling author.
Larry The Cable Guy has his signature catchphrase, “Git-R-Done”, and continues to sell-out theatres and arenas throughout North America. He recently performed in front of more than 50,000 fans while recording his next hour-long special Tailgate Party for Comedy Central last July 4 in Nebraska. In Cars 2, Larry will voice Mater in the sequel which will be released later this year.
Californian Bill Engvall currently hosts Country Fried Home Videos – one of the highest rated shows on Country Music Television (CMT). One of his biggest selling comedy albums and DVDs is, “Here’s Your Sign.”
