Does anyone find Larry the Cable Guy funny?

Postby no1cowboysfan » Tue Jun 20, 2006 12:17 am

This is an honest query. Everytime I see/hear a clip of his comedy, I am flabberghasted as to why this man is employed. He is simply NOT FUNNY. AT ALL. His comedy involves the same cliche metaphors over and over and throws in a disgusting bit of human anatomy (chiefly involving hair or zits), and throws in a racist remark as well.

So please, any LTCG fans out there ... PLEASE. Tell me if you exist. Because right now, I think it's all a big conspiracy.

Edit: The thing is, I don't even dislike the other Blue Collar guys. Jeff Foxworthy's older CDs are pretty funny. Engvall and Ron White are hit and miss. But Larry? Just completely, 100%, I-don't-see-how-anyone-finds-this-crap-funny comedy.

I, like Mystic, don't think I've ever laughed listening or watching his comedy.

Not a big fan of Larry's either. I do think Ron White is an extremely funny man though. :-b

Amen, brother. Tater Salad is one of the funniest dudes I've ever heard, and I've heard some funny people over the years. As for Larry The Cable Guy, I don't find much of his humor particularly funny. I'm more of a Lewis Black, Dane Cook or Mitch Hedberg type.

Hear hear! I think Ron White is bust-a-gut hilarious. He has a way of telling a story that, no matter what he's saying, it comes out extremely funny.

That man has a gift.

Well, when you've had Kyle Boller and Kordell Stewart as your quarterbacks for the past several years, you do kind of need to develop a sense of humor. :-D

Ok, now that was funny. :-D


Not sure what the hype of this guy is either. It is kind of hard to laugh at someone who consistently brings up going/making out with a relative :-P

Like others have said, Ron White has me rolling. I like the "I was thrown into PUBLIK" bit :-b

Thanks to deluxe_247 for the awesome sig.
