Don't miss Jeff Foxworthy at the Puyallup Fair on Friday, September 14th at 7:30pm!
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 best selling author of 11 books. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s.
Foxworthy stars in and executive produces the television series, Blue Collar TV, which he created for the WB network. The ensemble cast includes Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. The television show premiered on Thursday, July 29, 2004 at 8:00 pm and was the second most watched show in that time period with 5.4 million viewers.
July 6, 2004 marked the release of Jeff’s final solo comedy cd titled Have Your Loved Ones Spayed or Neutered. The cd contains all new material. It debuted at number one on the Billboard Comedy Charts and was Jeff’s second highest selling album debut.
In April 1999, The Foxworthy Countdown, a weekly syndicated three-hour radio show, debuted featuring Jeff bringing fans the current Top 25 country hits as well as interviews with stars. The show is carried in over two hundred and twenty markets across the United States. Jeff received a CMA nomination in 2001 for Broadcast Personality of the Year.
Away from the stage, an interest which Jeff holds near and dear is the Duke University Children’s Hospital in Durham, NC. Jeff is the Honorary Chairman of the Duke Children’s Classic Golf Tournament. With Jeff’s help, the hospital, which specializes in treating children with cancer, has raised over $4 million in the last four years. This Georgia native remains true to his southern roots and resides with his wife and two daughters in Atlanta.
