Larry the Cable Guy is a nickname used by Daniel Lawrence Whitney, also known as Larry, Dan Whitney and The Freight Train of Comedy. During his career as an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, TV producer, voice actor and radio personality Larry’s net worth has become as amazingly high as $50 million. However, the nickname of Larry is definitely not associated with this profession. Larry is known as a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and also as a person who gained huge success in the world of show business and the entertainment industry – L. Whitney has released seven CD albums in a genre of comedy and all of them extremely successful.

Larry the Cable Guy Net Worth $50 Million

Larry the Cable Guy was born as Daniel Lawrence Whitney on February 17, 1963, in Pawnee City, Nebraska, United States. Larry’s childhood was spent on a pig farm owned by his parents, but moreover, Larry’s father was also famous as a minister of Christians. As a young man Larry the Cable Guy attended the Baptist University of America and later also studied in the University of Nebraska. However, Larry did not finish his studies as he found out about his talent in comedy and decided to earn net worth using his ability rather than continue studying in the university. Now we definitely can tell this was not a wrong decision as it could be seen, nowadays that Lawrence’s net worth is so amazingly huge that he is considered to be one of the richest comedians in the US.

However, Larry’s career which later helped him to such a big net worth, started not so successfully as he would liked. Larry’s debut was in 1995, when the CD entitled “Law and Disorder” was released. This CD did not even have any label and did not hit any number on the US charts, but Larry did not give up and made many other tries. The second CD, “Salutation and Flatulations”, also did not bring a huge amount of money to Larry and did not increase his net worth. But in 2001 a great breakthrough was made – “Lord, I Apologize” was released and immediately hit number 1 on the U.S. chart of comedy. Furthermore, this great disc was certified to be Gold in United States, so now you should not be unsure about the question about how rich is Larry the Cable Guy.

However, this was only the beginning. The next CD was released only three years later and it even surpassed the previous one, as it not only again hit number one in the comedy genre, but also was in 8th place on the global chart.

Talking about Larry’s success in cinema, Whitney’s net worth increased again while appearing in the movie “Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie” directed by C. B. Harding, and later Larry became even more popular thanks to another great movie – “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector”.

These are the reasons why today the estimated net worth of Larry is so big.

# Quote
1 What I do onstage, there’s maybe .0001 percent of the population that acts like that. I talk like that because it makes me laugh, and because I know a couple of people that talk like that. They’re really that Southern. And they do funny things. I love ’em; they’re awesome. They’re good people.
2 The only reason I’m ever in character as ‘Larry The Cable Guy’ is because that’s what I’m hired to do. In my movies, obviously they hired ‘Larry The Cable Guy’ to be ‘Larry The Cable Guy.’ When I do my shows, I’m ‘Larry The Cable Guy.’ When I do Jay Leno, it’s: ‘Please welcome ‘Larry The Cable Guy.”
3 The thing that’s changed the way I do my stand-up act is having kids and getting older and wiser and smarter. There might be a joke or two in the past that I wish I hadn’t done, but in the past, you can’t have it back.
4 Tony Orlando is one of the nicest guys I have ever met – bar none – in my entire life. I was always a fan when I was a kid – you know, huge fan. Who wasn’t a fan of Tony Orlando?
5 We try to make the name longer and longer every year. First, it was ‘Larry the Cable Guy’s Christmas Spectacular.’ Then it was ‘It’s a Very Larry Christmas.’ Now it’s ‘Larry the Cable Guy’s Hula-palooza Christmas Luau.’ I’ll tell you what it is: It’s funny. That’s what it is. Who cares what the name of it is? It is a funny special.
6 What a piece of garbage this smart car is. There’s a commercial – the smart car has zero percent interest for six years. Well, good, I got zero percent in six years in buying this smart car. I’ll tell you that much. I mean, it’s ridiculous. My buddy has a smart car, totaled it. He hit a deer tick.
7 I think probably one of the coolest things was when I went to play basketball at Rucker Park in Harlem. First of all, who would think that Larry the Cable Guy would go to Harlem to play basketball? And I was received like a rock star. It was amazing! There were people everywhere. There were guys walking by yelling, ‘Git ‘r done!’
8 I was always a fan of the old-style comics. I loved vaudeville. I loved Milton Berle, Dick Shawn, Phyllis Diller, Don Rickles, Charlie Callas, all those guys. Hilarious. I love the Bing Crosby and Bob Hope movies, and Abbott & Costello. My television influences were ‘Monty Python’s Flying Circus,’ ‘Benny Hill,’ and ‘Hee Haw.’
9 I’m a huge NASCAR fan, but I’m not a gearhead. I’ve never been into fixing cars. It’s not because I don’t like it. I would love to know more. It’s just my dad never taught me that stuff because my dad wasn’t a mechanic.
10 It’s nice if people can finally loosen up a little bit and just go out laugh at silliness. I mean, people take themselves way too seriously sometimes.
11 One of my little girls is named Reagan. Her first words were, ‘Mr. Larry, tear down this crib.’ That was her first words, it was very sweet. My first words were, ‘Are you going to finish that sandwich?’
12 I don’t judge people by their accent, or how they word things, or how grammatically correct their speech is. Some of the smartest men in the world couldn’t spell. I judge a person by their character.
13 I don’t really get to see a lot of other comedians, because I work with the same people all the time. The guy I really like is Nick DiPaulo. I love Nick DiPaulo, but again, he’s a buddy of mine. But I liked him for a long time. I liked him before he was a buddy of mine.
14 I just developed my act way back in the late ’80s. I went to college in Georgia, so I picked up the Southern accent. I talked like that with my friends all the time, because it was fun. It was funny… All my friends were real Southern. We’re buddies, so I’d say stuff to make them laugh. So that was pretty much it.
15 I love food: biscuits and gravy, cheese grits, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken-fried steak with white gravy… but my favorite dish is my wife’s beanie weenie cornbread casserole. It’s so good. It sounds stupid, but if you eat it, it’s heaven. Of course, it’s only something you can eat if you’ve got a lot of money.
16 I saw a sign one time that said ‘hemorrhoids awareness week’ at the doctor’s office. Let me tell you, if you got hemorrhoids, I’m sure you are aware of it. You don’t need a sign to tell anybody about it.
17 I don’t even see it as cable TV anymore. I’ve been called ‘Larry the Cable Guy’ for so long, I don’t even think about it being about cable. I don’t know anything about cable.
18 As a comedian, I don’t know if they’re laughing because it’s funny or if they’re laughing at me because I’m not funny. And I’m thinking, ‘Who cares? They’re laughing.’ If you go on stage, and they’re laughing at you full-on for 60 minutes? You know, whatever puts them in the seats.
19 ‘Cars’ has been a godsend. I mean, I get paid to talk into a mic. Honestly, I had no idea it would become as big as it did. When I first got the part of Mater, it was actually a small part. I did the voicing for it, though, and the animators liked it so much they rewrote the original script so that Mater could be in it more.
20 Doing a kid’s movie is fun when you have kids. You don’t want to do kids’ movies if you don’t have kids. When you have kids, things change in your life.
21 Even before I did stand-up, I’ve always been the kind of guy – and I talk about it on stage – who says I like people and I always look for the good in people. I say, ‘Every person has something good about them, if you can just find it.’
22 I’ve never judged anybody by how they look or how they dress. I basically judge them on their character. And that’s how I lead my own life.
23 I’ve only been to these foreign countries: Canada, L.A. and Miami.
24 Our whole wedding cost 180 bucks. Afterward, we re-heated lasagna for everyone and set off fireworks.
25 We’re homebodies. I’ve gotten to see my kids’ first steps, first smiles, first words. Every day is a weekend.
26 When Pixar calls and says, ‘Hey, you wanna be in a Pixar movie?’ you don’t do a lot of contemplating!
27 Every July, I look forward to taping a Christmas show – in July in Nashville. In 98-degree weather. I love it.
28 I’m not a party guy, and I’m not a Hollywood guy, either.
29 I’m saying, Come on, the global warming thing? How did the ice melt during the ice ages? Was the dinosaurs driving SUVs around back then?
30 I’m so sick of gay this, gay that. I could care less. It ain’t affecting my life at all.
31 I’ve always felt that if you’ve been blessed, you should try to help as many people as you can. I just think that’s the right thing to do.
# Fact
1 Dr. Chad Price at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, Florida helped cure Larry’s son, Wyatt, of hip dysplasia, while Wyatt was an infant. Following this, Larry and his Git-R-Done foundation donated $5 million to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute at the hospital in September, 2010.
2 Son of Tom Whitney and Shirley Whitney.
3 In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated his earnings for the year at $20 million.
4 Son, Wyatt, born August 2006.
5 Daughter, Reagan, born 29 October 2007.
6 Well before hitting it big with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, he contributed short, daily commentaries for the rock station 101.1 WJRR, which broadcasts out of Maitland, Florida. He also had put in a short stint with another Orlando-area rock station (100.3 WDIZ) before they abruptly changed formats, prior to his work with WJRR.
7 While Larry’s stand-up act contains a great deal of raunchy material he does not use four-letter words.
8 One of his closest friends is fellow comic Lewis Black, who is pretty much his opposite when it comes to political views, background, and performance material.
9 Larry is a huge University of Nebraska fan (mostly football). Although he’s lived in Florida for 27 years, he still calls Nebraska home. His accent is a combination of Pawnee City, NE, and his current home near Orlando, FL. He’s lived there since he was 16. He’s bought a second home south of Lincoln, watches as many games as he can, and recently bought one of the new (2006) sky boxes in the North end-zone. He also tries to wear some article of clothing (usually a hat) that says “Nebraska” or “Huskers” during every performance.
10 His favorite comedians are Steve Martin, Don Rickles, Milton Berle, and Henny Youngman. He has met Henny Youngman. Larry says that he’s in the comedy business because of those guys, and a friend named Nick Di Paolo, who used to do stuff on Comedy Central.
11 Is expecting first child with wife Cara Whitney, due August 2006. If it’s a girl, they plan on naming the baby Reagan (he says because Ronald Reagan was the greatest president, ever), or Colton if it’s a boy, because he says it’s a good cowboy name and he likes cowboys.
12 He is a member of the Blue Collar Comedy group, a group of “rednecks” who do stand-up and sketch comedy, together. The other members are his friends: Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Ron White.
