Release Date: 2009-10-28

Given Sarah Palin’s fetish for a mythical, beer-guzzling beast known as “Joe Sixpack,” she must have the hots for Dan Whitney, the trash-talking, perpetually grilling, cut-off-shirt-wearing creator of Blue Collar Comedy known as “Larry the Cable Guy.” Whitney grew up raising pigs on a farm, but eventually adopted his parents’ love for the stage (while Dad played guitar with the Everly Brothers, Mom moonlighted as an Elvis impersonator). By satirizing his background to create a wisecracking daddy-bear character with a thick Southern accent and poor grammar, Whitney has become one of the most recognizable comics of the internet generation, while blessing us all with his multi-purpose motto, “Git-R-Done!” $43.75, 7:30pm, Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston, San Antonio, (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com
