CARS 2

LARRY THE CABLE GUY (voice of Mater) is a multiplatinum recording artist, a multiple Grammy® nominee and the star of the new hit television show for The History Channel, "Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy.” In each episode, Larry will visit various sites across the country, revealing bits of real history while immersing himself in new and different lifestyles, jobs and hobbies that celebrate the American experience. The result: an informative new approach to history that will be as memorable as it is quirky. Larry stars in "Tooth Fairy 2,” for Fox, which will be released direct-to-DVD in the first quarter of 2012.

On July 4, 2009, at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb., Larry performed in front of more than 50,000 and taped his most recent hour-long special, "Tailgate Party,” for Comedy Central. The show was a thank you to his fans and Nebraska for their longtime support. Tickets were sold for only $4, and the show sold out in one weekend. The special aired on January 31, 2010, and the DVD was released on February 2, 2010. The comedy CD of the same name debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts.

"The Comedy Central Roast of Larry the Cable Guy” (2009), executive-produced by Larry, was the third-highest-rated roast in Comedy Central history, attracting 4.1 million viewers. He also hosted and produced "Larry the Cable Guy's Star Studded Christmas Extravaganza,” which aired on CMT to huge ratings success. His Christmas special, "Larry the Cable Guy's Hula-Palooza Christmas Luau,” aired on CMT in late 2009.

In 2008, Larry co-starred with Ivana Milicevic, Yaphet Kotto, Peter Stormare, Joe Mantegna, Jenny McCarthy and Eric Roberts in "Witless Protection.” In 2007, he starred in the film "Delta Farce.” His first feature, "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector,” was released in 2006. The comedy starred Joe Pantoliano, Joanna Cassidy and Tony Hale. When the DVD was released in August 2006, it sold more than one million copies in the first week of release.

Larry was part of the highly successful concert "Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” which grossed more than $15 million. The ensemble cast of comedians included Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall. The tour's success led to "Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie,” which premiered on Comedy Central in November 2003 and, at the time, was the highest-rated movie in the channel's history. The DVD has sold more than 4 million units. The sequel "Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again” has sold more than 3 million units. In March 2006, the Blue Collar boys reunited to shoot "Blue Collar Comedy Tour, One for the Road” in Washington, D.C., at the Warner Theater. The movie had its world premiere on Comedy Central on June 4, 2006, again receiving some of the highest ratings. The soundtrack was nominated for a 2006 Grammy®.

His first comedy-album release, "Lord, I Apologize,” has reached gold status, selling more than 500,000 copies. The CD was No. 1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts for 15 weeks in a row. Larry's DVD special "Git-R-Done” has sold more than a million copies and has been certified platinum. Larry also starred in "Blue Collar TV,” a sketch-comedy series, for The WB network, which premiered on July 29, 2004.

Larry's comedy CD "Morning Constitutions” was released in 2007 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts. His previous release, "The Right to Bare Arms” (Jack Records/Warner Bros. Records), debuted at No. 1 on the Soundscan Comedy Chart, No. 1 on the Country Chart, and No. 7 on the Top 200 Chart. This marked the first time in the history of Soundscan that a comedy album has charted at No. 1 on the Country Chart. It has been certified gold (500,000 units) by the RIAA. "The Right to Bare Arms” also received a Grammy® nomination. His first Christmas CD, "A Very Larry Christmas,” has also been certified platinum (1,000,000 units).

Larry won Billboard's 2005 Comedy Artist of the year and Comedy Album of the year. He is a best-selling author, and his book "Git-RDone” (2005) debuted at No. 26 on the New York Times best-seller list.

Larry was named to Forbes' Celebrity 100 list this year (2011) and also appeared two years in a row previously (2006 and 2007). This lists the hottest and most successful people in the entertainment industry. Larry has also received the Billboard Top Comedy Tour Award (2006).
