Mini Bio (1)

Foxworthy was born Jeffrey Marshall Foxworthy in Atlanta, Georgia on September 6, 1958.

He followed in his father's footsteps working for IBM in Georgia, but on a dare from friends, he did a few minutes of comedy at an Atlanta comedy club. A few months later, Foxworthy quit his job and started on the stand-up comedy road. His comedy originally centered on family situations, but he soon hit upon his successful "You might be a redneck if..." tagline, which he says signifies "a glorious absence of sophistication." Following two successful albums, Foxworthy joined the growing trend of stand-up comics with their own TV sitcoms.
