Blue Collar Comedy Biography

Blue Collar Comedy Biography

The Blue Collar Comedy Tour began in January 2000 when Jeff Foxworthy started touring with three of his comedian friends, Bill Engvall, Ron White, and Larry the Cable Guy. Foxworthy had already established himself as a well-known, Grammy-award winning stand-up comedian, best known for his jokes and stories about life as a redneck. As for the other three, Engvall's comedy mainly concerns his everyday life and observations of comments he finds to be stupid, Larry's tends to follow a stereotypical redneck style filled with one-liners, and Ron's comedy is based around personal experiences retold in his smoking/drinking Southern persona. The tour that featured these four "good ole boys" proved to be such a smash hit that they recorded a live album in November 2001 and the first DVD called Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie in the Spring of 2003. During all films, at the last portion of the film, all four entertainers go on stage and collaborate with each other presenting the last material for the show. Often, they tell personal stories of their wives, their family, past experiences, etc. Each time there has been a case where a cast member shared something to close the show: Jeff in Blue Collar Comedy Tour: the Movie does his classic "You Might Be a Redneck" routine with the others sometimes joining in with their own. Bill also does "Here's Your Sign". In Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again, Larry closes the show with him playing a song with his Confederate flag themed guitar called "I Believe". All four members during this number tell what they believe after Larry plays a series of notes, all of which at the end have a few discorded scales. In Blue Collar Comedy Tour: One For the Road, a Rolodex of the four members' old photos was assembled by their wives. All members comment during this. In March 2006, the group started a Blue Collar Comedy channel on Sirius Satellite Radio titled Blue Collar Radio. The station features not only various stand-up acts from the four members but various acts from other working class-esque comedians such as Brian Regan, Rodney Carrington, Kathleen Madigan, John Caponera, Rodney Dangerfield, Ray Romano, and others as well. Blue Collar Radio can be heard on Sirius channel 103.
