Personal Quote:

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. See more »

Trivia:

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. See more »
