The Right to Bare Arms

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
"This is going to be the dumbest show you ever seen in your whole life up here, I guaran-daggone-tee you that right there," is how Larry the Cable Guy, the beefy dimwit of Blue Collar Comedy, warns the suspecting audience attending the southern-fried laugh extravaganza captured on The Right to Bare Arms. Larry, a self-professed C-section baby (meaning "C section of a Waylon Jennings concert"), doesn't pretend to be a pointy-headed intellectual, but some of his topical zingers are better informed than he would let on. On reality shows: "The Apprentice. It's basically a game show, alright, first prize is a job. Who the hell wants to win a job on a game show? What's second ...

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
"This is going to be the dumbest show you ever seen in your whole life up here, I guaran-daggone-tee you that right there," is how Larry the Cable Guy, the beefy dimwit of Blue Collar Comedy, warns the suspecting audience attending the southern-fried laugh extravaganza captured on The Right to Bare Arms. Larry, a self-professed C-section baby (meaning "C section of a Waylon Jennings concert"), doesn't pretend to be a pointy-headed intellectual, but some of his topical zingers are better informed than he would let on. On reality shows: "The Apprentice. It's basically a game show, alright, first prize is a job. Who the hell wants to win a job on a game show? What's second place? Jury duty?" And if a Queer Eye guy tries to dress him, Larry announces that the spin-off of that episode will be titled Black Eye for the Queer Guy. He ribs the band Boston for putting out only five albums in 30 years -- "Hell, Jimi Hendrix is dead and he still puts out three albums a year!" -- and muses about being at a Rolling Stones concert but never seeing the band live (and as for 53-year-old Charlie Watts marrying a 19-year-old lass, Larry fumes, "That pissed me off. I went to my old math teacher and said, 'See, I told you 53 would go into 19!' "). Drivers on cell phones? Larry spilled three beers chasing one who was "taking out more cones than Oprah at the Dairy Queen." Hey, as the Cable Guy would point out, that's comedy right there, that's funny. As the man who's made the catchphrase "git-r-done" a redneck calling card nationwide, he follows his own advice to the letter, positioning himself as the smartest dumb comic around.
All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Brash, politically incorrect, and "one of the dumbest shows you ever heard" according to the man himself, The Right to Bare Arms captures proud redneck Larry the Cable Guy live in Houston in front of a rowdy, appreciative audience. It's a good time and -- considering the famous comedian's scant discography -- the best he's done on CD, with a wealth of material that hasn't been heard before. For every obvious Middle American-pleasing, crowd-rallying joke "I was getting Michael Moore DVDs to put under my couch to make it sit level...", there's that witty word-twisting that Larry's the Southern king of "Is it Hank Williams, Jr. High School or Hank Williams Junior High School?" and that blue humor that either side of the political spectrum can appreciate "I was with a midget hooker and gave her eight dollars to go up on me". That's something Blue Collar TV-loving parents should know. Larry lets it all hang out when he's free from the tame television show, and while his language doesn't earn him a "Parental Advisory" sticker, the innuendo is heavy and will have junior asking "Why is everybody laughing?" The main part of the show goes by quick, with Larry rattling off the jokes at a Henny Youngman pace, while the closing song and the "kids say the darndest things"-style encore, "Toddler Mail," show Larry is more creative than a simple joke-teller. A step up from his patchy Christmas album and a hundred times better than his too-safe television show, The Right to Bare Arms is recommended to Jim Beam drinkers, NASCAR lovers, and anyone who loves plain old standup.
