Jeff Foxworthy, Larry The Cable Guy & Bill Engvall Entertain At Philips Arena Saturday Night

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.” 

AJC photographer Robb Cohen covered the show with his camera. Check out the  online gallery.   What did you think of the show? Who do you think was the funniest and can you retell a one-liner or your favorite joke in this blog?

We thought Jeff was the funniest, followed by Larry. We weren’t too crazy about the host, Reno. I’ve seen Jeff before and he’s had better opening acts. Funniest story was about Foxworthy preparing for his colonoscopy. Oh, to be 50!

Note to Bill Engvall: We paid good money for this show and the least you could do would be to have some new and fresh material. I have heard all of his stuff before except the part about the ice storm…..Jeff Foxworthy was by far the best and Larry was just OK. I agree that Reno Collier was not very good but I have seen him before at the Punchline and he was hysterical.
I too enjoyed Jeff’s story about his colonoscopy.Not looking forward to that pleasure !!

They are all funny as usual. The pre-show videos were quite entertaining, and I can just imagine a bar-stool session involving the 4 of them AND Jeff Dunham and Walter. Envall is one of my all-time favorites, but I do have to agree that he didn’t need to be reusing material. Reno’s funniest line was that he was usually mistaken for Natalie from Facts of Life. Keep practicing.
Who knew that Larry could sing opera (or operatically, as the case may be)? His rendition of the the Armor Hot Dog song as interpreted by Andrew Lloyd [sic] Weeber is not to be missed. (Do a youtube search since he performed it on Leno).
Lastly: You might be a redneck if… more than 80% of the show hit very close to home.
