Larry the Cable Guy set to take City stage

With his redneck humour and his witty personality, Larry the Cable Guy will make his first stop in Central Alberta tomorrow night.

Larry the Cable Guy performs at the Centrium Jan. 12. Show starts at 8 p.m. Comedian Bill Engvall will sideline the show.

With his signature catchphrase, “Git-R-Done”, Larry the Cable Guy is currently embarking on a huge tour which takes him across Canada and the United States.

Larry has many achievements already under his belt from starring a number of hit movies to selling out arenas around North America and beyond.

His first feature Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector was released by Lionsgate in 2006. The comedy starred Joe Pantoliano, Joanna Cassidy, and Tony Hale.

Larry also starred in the film Delta Farce which was released in May 2007. The movie also starred Engvall and DJ Qualls. He is also the voice of Mater in the Golden Globe winning animated feature film Cars from Disney/Pixar.

Larry was part of the highly successful concert Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which grossed more than $15 million. The cast of comedians included Jeff Foxworthy as well as Engvall. The tour’s success led to Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie, which premiered on Comedy Central in 2003. It was the highest rated movie in the channel’s history at that time. The sequel Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again, has sold more than three million copies and is the third most watched telecast in Comedy Central’s history.

In March of 2006, the boys reunited to shoot Blue Collar Comedy Tour, One For The Road in Washington, DC at the Warner Theater. The soundtrack was nominated for a 2006 Grammy award. Larry’s last special was on VH1.

Larry The Cable Guy’s Christmas Spectacular is a throwback to the old school Christmas variety shows. The special stars Tony Orlando, Lisa Lampanelli, Jeffrey Ross, Vicki Lawrence, George Wallace, Flavor Flav and more.

Larry’s first comedy album release Lord, I Apologize has reached gold status, selling more than 500,000 copies. The CD was number one on the Billboard Comedy Charts for 15 weeks in a row. Larry‘s DVD special Git-R-Done, has sold more than one million copies and has been certified platinum. The special aired on Comedy Central and gave the network their second biggest Sunday night ratings in the channel’s history. Larry also starred in Blue Collar TV, a sketch comedy series for The WB network which premiered in 2004. Almost five and a half million people watched the show.

Larry’s comedy CD Morning Constitutions was released in 2007 and debuted at number one on the Billboard Comedy Charts. His previous release, The Right To Bare Arms (Jack Records/Warner Bros. Records) debuted at number one on the Soundscan Comedy Chart, number one on the Country Chart, and number seven on the Top 200 Chart. This marked the first time in the history of Soundscan that a comedy album has charted at number one on the Country Chart. It has been certified gold by the RIAA. The Right To Bare Arms also received a Grammy nomination. Larry has also won Billboard’s 2005 Comedy Artist of the Year and Comedy Album of the Year. He is a bestselling author with his book Git-R-Done, which debuted at number 26 on the New York Times bestseller list.

In addition, Larry was named to Forbes Celebrity 100 list for the second year in a row. This lists the hottest and most successful people in the entertainment industry. Larry also recently received the 2006 Billboard Top Comedy Tour Award.

Tickets for the Red Deer show can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
