Larry The Cable
Guy - Morning Constitutions (DVD)
Peden, CSO Staff Journalist
as America’s hottest comedian, cable guy Larry is back with
another hilarious swipe. Following on from his successful CD, the
irreverent and topically humorous Morning Constitutions,
now we have the DVD.
If the oral
pleasures of Larry doing his well honed routine stimulated your
senses, be prepared to laugh loud and long with this visual
showing. While the CD brought its own light and shade to Larry’s
talent, the DVD, complete with rustic stage and
here-for-a-goodtime crowd, shows just how funny his live show can
be. And be in no doubt. Larry is funny. There’s no shiny jacket
and showbiz shoes, no perfected patter to the well-heeled,
Larry’s a guy, an ordinary guy, with a sense of the ridiculous,
all too happy to make himself the butt of his humor. And it works.

that’s around him. Whether he’s sizing up stool problems,
finger pointing at cultural diversity, as he does on Terrorist or
Toddler, or he’s bravely lampooning the gay mafia, he does it
all with a sharp and pointed tongue – one firmly wedged in his

constitution is complete.

Can I make a confession? Here in the Australian office of
CSO, I haven’t heard a lot of Larry the Cable Guy. Sure, I
know he’s one of America’s hottest working class
comedians. And I vaguely recall he was part of the Jeff
Foxworthy’s Blue Collar Comedy Tour entourage. But outside
of that fleeting recognition Larry (or Daniel Lawrence Whitney
to his mom and dad), is not a guy I’ve shared laughs over.
That’s about change. After hearing the latest release from
The Cable Guy, Larry, I’m hooked on his brand of humor. Fast
becoming a major part of the US comedic landscape, his
monologues and spirited jabs and jibes at everyday life travel
well a world away.
Morning Constitutions (Warner Bros) is a 12 tracker,
running at a tad under 60 minutes and recorded at The Orpheum
Theatre, Minneapolis. Larry offers astute lay observation and
devilish commentary on this, that and the other – in other
words the guy tagged “should be our next president” has
thoughts on just about everything. And the audience loved it.
And so did I.
Sure he’s rude, crass, loud and vulgar. But if you’ve
“knocked around a bit”, he’s not a guy who offends –
but I wouldn’t suggest this be played after church brunch
get-togethers. I mean the fart jokes just may not reach their
intended audience. And I’m sure the passing reference to
Hugh Hefner, Playboy Bunnies and the wonder drug Viagra may
just be something the local pastor may wish to avoid. Then
Larry is one good ol’ boy. He knows how to have fun. And
he has the innate talent to open wide his humor and take us
along for the ride. Whether he’s poking fun at Walmart,
lampooning his recent bride, or slinging off at Brokeback
Mountain while teasing us with a Cash-inspired tune, “A Sue
Named Boy”, the laughs are never far from the surface.
And ol’ Larry has had plenty of time and sales to work
his act to perfection. Not only has he appeared as himself and
an uncertain gender bender type in Gretchen Wilson’s video
“All Jacked Up”, but the Grammy nominated comedian has had
cash registers singing a selling song with combined sales of
his albums in the millions. And just to prove he’s mighty
with the pen as he is with the laughs, his “Git-R-Done”
book hit high spots on the envied New York Times bestseller
list. Oh, and did I mention he was named in Forbes magazine's
"Celebrity 100”. For the uninitiated that’s a list of
the hottest and most successful people in the entertainment
Larry ain’t for everybody. But everybody will find
something to laugh at here. Larry’s the guy, he shoots
one-liners quicker than a missile on a heat-seeking target,
and he blows hard and loud about the sensibilities that can,
if allowed, shock and offend. Comedy is a fine line between
humor and offense. Larry wanders its length and contour
with ease, devilment and crafted humor.
It’s later than we think. It’s time to lighten up and
laugh. Thanks to Larry’s suburban subjects and style, we
