I admit, I have never seen Larry the Cable Guy…not even on Comedy Central, so when I got this CD I only knew one thing, it was a rare release these days…a real live bona fide comedy CD. So I was already pretty happy about that because I enjoy this genre. I own Denis Leary and Chris Rock albums and so I had high hopes here.
The verdict? I liked this! Of course any album with a tune like “Farting Jingle Bells” is going to score pretty high with Wendy Shepherd who runs this site…(this is a test, I wanna see if she really reads my reviews).
The format is cool, Larry is hosting a oldtime radio Christmas special and has a bunch of his friends drop by to help him celebrate this holiday. Some very special guests contribute some very funny insight on Christmas…southern chef Paula Deen, country stars Trace Adkins and Cowboy Troy also chip in to the merrymakings.
One thing that really pleased me was while this CD would be a rated PG-13, its not dependent on vulgarity that so many comics think they “have” push on their fans. Larry’s country wisdom, especially about fruit cake is pretty warm and his delivery is also pretty funny.
This is worth picking up….
