Larry the Cable Guy
Comedian Dan Whitney hasn’t always inhabited the sleeveless flannel and camouflage of Larry the Cable Guy, but he’s known him his entire life. “I grew up on a pig farm with nothing but 50- or 60-year-old cow farmers, so I was always able to drop in and out of that accent and that character,” he told The A.V. Club. Accordingly, he displays much affection as mockery toward the family of Southern stereotypes he riffs on via classic one-liners, punctuated by his trademark “Git-R-Done.” His deadpan delivery takes the form of a none-too-swift drawl that lets punch lines such as “I was living with a girl for about eight months, until she found out I was there” creep up unnoticed. Whitney has parlayed his crude country charm into an appropriately home-fried History Channel show—Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy—and roles in films including Witless Protection, Delta Farce, and Cars. With barbecue sauces, beer bread, and other low cuisine now bearing his name, Whitney’s empire of the everyman has not only vaulted him onto the Forbes Celebrity 100 list but helped fund a charitable foundation to support the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Warning: Crude content.
Many a great joke has been told by simply pointing out the absurd–a technique that Bill Engvall has mastered. The actor and comedian's signature bit, "Here's Your Sign", is founded on the simple premise that those who ask stupid questions should come with warning labels. On his first platinum-certified comedy album, also called Here's Your Sign, Engvall imagines a world in which this might happen, to insightful, hilarious results.
One of the stars of the Blue Collar Comedy tour and the WB's Blue Collar TV, Bill has also brought his wry style to films, comedy albums, and game shows. For three seasons, he starred in and produced the appropriately-titled Bill Engvall Show, and this summer will provide the animated vocals of a character on CMT's Bounty Hunters.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
