Overview

Blue Collar Comedy vet Larry the Cable Guy ushers in the holiday season in an appropriately white-trash fashion on A Very Larry Christmas. Alongside pals Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall, Larry has become a comedy staple on the live circuit and the big screen -- with the two Blue Collar Comedy Tour films -- and on the small screen, with the WB's Blue Collar TV show. Certainly, the Christmas season is ripe for picking apart, which Larry ably does on tracks like "Hark, the Hairlip Angel Sing," "Fruitcake Commentary," and "O Little Town of Birmingham." The timeless appeal of bits such as "Hilary Clinton's Coming to Town," "I Wish My Mother-in-Law'd Get Hit by a Car," and "Silent Farts," however, remains to be determined.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
First off, A Very Larry Christmas is mostly Larry the Cable Guy's syndicated radio "commentaries" -- the ones where he gives his down-home observations on different topics into a microphone that's way to close to his mouth. There's some other odds, ends, and little ditties, but this is more audio-bookish than a traditional album. That said, it's very, very funny. When Larry tries to be a part of his church's singing Christmas tree, he can't understand why his "Wine 'Em, Dine 'Em, 69 'Em" T-shirt isn't allowed at choir practice ("Where does it say that in the Bible?"). Larry is an absurd, lazy, hedonist from America's heartland who has way too much time to think about things. Don't take as offensive his idea that nonbelievers and folks of different faith should stay out of the Targets and Wal-Marts at Christmas time so the Christians can grab all the deals. Along with his knowingly out-of-date catch phrase "What the hell is this, Russia?" Larry is hoping you laugh at him more than with him by totally missing the real meaning of Christmas and by making plenty of other dimwitted blunders elsewhere. These "commentaries" are much more Larry as a character than he is in his standup routine, a slow character like Charlie Weaver or Jethro from the Beverly Hillbillies. Think Jethro with a South Park mouth and a bit of Blazing Saddles sensibility, and you'll stop worrying that he means everything he says. He's got talent, he's highly entertaining, and most of his jokes work well past the first listen. All these things -- along with some choice fart jokes -- overcome A Very Larry Christmas' slapped-together construction and make it worthwhile.
