Larry The Cable Guy’s Net Worth History
Larry (Daniel) made his net wort through comedy. In 1991, after a few years working routines in the Palm Beach comedy scene, Larry got a gig on radio doing comedy characters where he eventually got the name “Larry The Cable Guy”. Larry’s big break was in 2000 after being invited on Jeff Foxworthy’s “Blue Collar Comedy tour”. Thanks to this tour, and 2 CD’s following it, Larry made his fortune through comedy which is not a common trait in the comedic industry. Larry got his big break and instead of taking the money and running he has stuck around to bring more tears of laughter to our eyes and voice acting in animated movies.

It’s not hard to come to the conclusion that Larry is a “Redneck” and he makes sure that you’re aware of it. His comedy style has a lot to do with southern life, being a redneck, and family. One of the reasons Larry’s comedy is to successful is due to his relatable style. Jokes about a common understanding will put the listener into the situation, they may have even been in that situation before. The listener will be able to look back at their past experiences and find a bright side or a new point-of-view to make them laugh.
Like the tour that got him famous – Larry has a sort of blue collar worker demeanor about him, which also allows for him to connect to his audience in ways that other comedians cannot. Going to see Larry live is like watching a fellow worker get up on stage and talk about your life and the things you and your friends do during a weekend and turn it into a hilarious hour special.
