Larry the Cable GuyDan Whitney, aka Larry the Cable Guy, will be filming episodes for a new History Channel show during his current five-month national tour. Tentatively titled, The United States of Larry, the show will find the hugely successful blue collar comedian criss-crossing the nation interviewing folks with interesting jobs, hobbies and ways of life.

Larry revealed that participating in a Civil War reenactment and learning how moonshine is made are just two of the activities he’ll be partaking in.

Filming will begin in March and take a total of 39 days. “Did you ever think you’d see me on the History Channel?” Larry laughs.

    Hey, does that include those of us that make a living telling jokes, drinking beer, and sleeping until noon?

    Larry, you have got to come to Dawsonville, GA near my home…..for the yearly Moonshine festival. NASCAR legend Bill Elliot also lives here. Hell, how do you think his family made money for them race cars?

    For the government tax agents, we are making Bio-Alcohol fuel from Corn……Tastes pretty good and has a kick to it. Makes the cars go real fast too!

    I bet we could show Tater something with a lot more kick than that soda pop he drinks. 200 proof might knock his “Man Thang” in the dirt.

    Hey, Larry, if you make it down to Georgia, why don’t you come by Atlanta and we will take you on a real ghost hunt! I mean the real deal, not that lame stuff they do on other channels. Drop me a line and we’ll “git ‘er done”! lol

    farting post factory. I expect to see business
    booming before long.Got the idea when I was in 8th
    grade industrial arts class for 5 years.I’ll be able
    to let you know how it’s going when my wife lets
    me back in the house.

    Hey Dan….er, Larry, whatever…..I know where you’re really from. Glad you learnt’ to talk normal like us Americans in the South.

    I’ve met Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engval, and stood close enough (twice) to Ron White to wonder how come he don’t catch on fire and burn with a blue flame….but I still ain’t met you in person.

    I’ve moved to Woodstock, GA where ATF is a good weekend, not some damn government agency.

    So when you gonna climb down off that high hawg and say “Hi y’all” to me? I dare you to “Google Me”…..I want to be like you, on stage, a wife half my age, and can afford to buy a Fart Machine at the mall.

    When is your show going to be on?

    I need your help….to find the funny in the 87 year old women drivers that tried to kill me in traffic.

    I need a new truck, with “Train Air Horns” these old women can hear when I blow them (loud enough to make them leap over minivans and soil their Depend diapers).

    I’m in the Atlanta area now, still a P.A.R.N. (Poor @$$ Redneck).

    The History Channel’s new tagline: “History Clowns Made Every Day”….

    Utterly pathetic.

    They need to change the name of the channel to the Redneck Dream Job channel. It was bad enough with all the reality garbage about whiny loggers, petty truck drivers, fisherman, pawn clerks and trash pickers. Now, they lowered the bar even further, just as I thought it couldn’t go any lower, and gave up on any quality, thought provoking programming.
    Can’t wait till they start the Andrew Dice Clay series on women executives.

    At least no we’ll never have to wonder if anything good is on, and History will replace it’s old view base with people who thought Spike was a bit high-brow.

  • Donna

    I am anxious to see the show. Ads for it look like it’s gonna be a good show. “Git er done Larry!”

  • Kevin

    Really? What a poor choice. More shows like this and that channel will be history!

  • Mike

    My God, I hate everything. God Damnit, America. God Damnit, “History” Channel.

  • Dave

    This sounds like a crappy Dirty Jobs ripoff.

    Mike,
    Your show won’t be complete unless you come to the Trailing of the Sheep Festival in Ketchum, Idaho in October.

    Imagine closing the highway and Main Street in a trendy resort community and thousands of people lining up to see 2,000 sheep strut down Main Street. Not a reenactment. The sheep are leaving summer grazing in the mountains heading south for warmer winter temps.

    We celebrate culture, community, history, heritage with storytelling, Basque, Scottish, Peruvian and Polish musicians and dancers. Folk art, food and amazing family fun.

    Please come.

    Contact me!
