Jump To Larry The Cable Guy's Stats
Would a redneck recognize another redneck? Daniel Lawrence Whitney has bet his life's work that it couldn't happen as in his stage presence, Larry the Cable Guy. Whitney exploits his ability to sound backwood, redneck and ignorant in character as he fluffs up his net worth to a substantial $151,601,300.
Whitney is a Midwest Nebraska boy that learned the ways of the south through close roommate friend in college. He mimicked their drawls and remembered their sayings as he developed his stage character as Larry. Meaning no disrespect whatsoever, Whitney knew that the world needed lighten up with folks disparaging one another. He turned his experience into a stand up, radio comedy act.
Daniel or Larry has built part of his aw-shucks goof reputation on his poignant quotes. His signature 'Git er Done' line signifies his how much he has adopted the mannerisms of the south and incorporated humorous views of everyday life. He also plays upon the back woodsy or hillbilly aspect as the good Ole country boy. With camouflage headgear and shorts and cutoff sleeves the paunchy comedian covers breastfeeding, Gothic piercings and relationships in all his edgy acts.
He has appeared on numerous television, movie and individual shows throughout his career. Such memorable (or forgettable) titles like Witless Protection and Delta Farce have made him a true force when it comes to the Straight to DVD market. With all that talent on the loose, Disney grabbed him up for a part in the classic animated feature Cars. Think of the tow truck. He auditioned for the Porsche part, but the casting director had a heart attack during his reading. Luckily, casting got resolved adequately and the director recovered.
