Thursday To-Do: Larry the Cable Guy

LARRY THE CABLE GUY
7:30 p.m., Alltel Arena. $42.50.

Not that you can't be a redneck without stretching your diphthongs, but have you heard Larry the Cable Guy's actual accent? It's pure Nebraska cornfield, as twang-less as Tom Brokaw. If that undermines his “git-r-done” shtick, no one's showed sign of caring. The 45-year-old comedian, real name Daniel Whitney, is perhaps the most beloved funny man in the country. Two of his comedy albums, “Lord, I Apologize” and “The Right to Bare Arms,” have been certified gold. He's starred in a number of films — “Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector,” “Delta Farce,” “Witless Protection” — all of which have inspired critical skewering, but made money at the box office. His endless string of one-liners (he's said he often packs 700 punch lines into a set) might baffle a lot of us, but you better believe Alltel will be packed out.
