Taking chances on stage to connect with your audience doesn’t always work out the way you think, comedian Jeff Foxworthy told listeners during the KSAL Morning News Wednesday.
Foxworthy is set to team up with Larry the Cable Guy in Salina Friday night at the Bicentennial Center.
“I’ll go out by myself and do 45-50 minutes of standup, then I’ll leave and he’ll come out and do the same thing,” Foxworthy said.
When the lights come up – the show isn’t over.
“We bring stools out and we just take questions from the audience.”
Foxworthy explained the routine was Larry’s idea, “I thought, “Oh Lord this is going to be a goat rope,” and it’s so much fun and there’s so many laughs in it,” he said.
Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and bestselling author of more than 26 books.
