    Not uncommon knowledge. Hell, he wears a Nebraska pendant on his chain all the time.

    Many entertainers have developed and stuck with a character other than their real persona. Doesn't change the fact that he's entertaining as hell.

    Isn't the whole point of comedy to find something funny and exploit it for money. he went from nerd to millionare and he doesn't have to shave. That routine in the video is sad. good for him for finding something that works.


    Now Jeff Foxworthy really is a redneck.

    Thar, fixed it up.
    LARRY
    IS
    AWSOME

    I saw his performance in Witchita last year, and he did pretty good. I can tell that most of it is an act but, I know that his personality is real. I am not sure whether that video is him either.

    That video IS him . The 80's and early 90's was so loooooooong ago .

    Ever see Ron White with long hair in a ponytail and a tie dye shirt ? Its on DVD too :thumb:

    Jeff is the one who looks closest to what he did back then .

    I'd act like a ghetto ass comedian if that was where I could make millions. Unfortunately, I am 5'8", have red hair, and have a slight TX accent. Dont know if I could pull it off very well.

    Who cares if he hasnt always worn a flannel shirt with torn sleeves and the accent isnt real. It's funny.
