Video: Blue Collar comedy legend to ‘get-r-done’ on Niagara Falls casino stage
Published November 25, 2022 at 2:18 pm
Before Jeff Foxworthy began his “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” in 2000, it’s a certainty that no one had ever heard of Bill Engvall, Ron White and Larry the Cable Guy.
The tour was hardly a shrine for the sophisticated wit crowd. No, this was, as aptly described, blue collar, southern-fried, home-spun, silly laughs for the regular folks and it really struck a funny bone in North America, becoming a comedy behemoth.
Of the foursome, the biggest ‘local yokel’ was little-known Larry the Cable Guy, a.k.a. Daniel Lawrence Whitney, now a well-known comedian, actor, producer, country music artist, and former radio personality.
He’ll be bringing his catch phrase “Get-r-done” and standup act to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino Resort on January 12, 2023.
“If you are a person who enjoys the honest and quirky musings of family and everyday life from a down-home boy from Nebraska, then we have the ticket for you,” says Cathy Price, Niagara Casinos’ vice president of marketing. “Larry the Cable Guy is all of those and a barrel of laughs rolled into one.”
A multi-Platinum recording artist, Grammy nominee and Billboard award winner, he is now one of the top comedians and performers in the world.
He is also a committed giver, thanks to his efforts with The Git-R-Done Foundation, which was created by the comedian and named after his signature catchphrase. To date, the charity has donated more than $7 million to various charities.
Also an author, his book “Git-R-Done” (2005) debuted at No. 26 on the New York Times bestseller list.
“Larry the Cable Guy isn’t a single-faceted person by any means,” Price said. “His eclectic performing talents from stage to screen are impressive, and his work with charity speaks for itself. He’s a man of action in both life and comedy.”
Tickets are on sale now and start at $64 – they can be found HERE!
