His occasional politics get in the way
2 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For anyone who's seen his comedy shows on Comedy Central or wherever, some love Larry, some don't. His humor is very Southern, very "red neck." And when he's self-deprecating, it's endearing. But, it's an act, and while his humor can be amusing or mildly amusing, not all of it is. And the biggest problem with this comic, is when he starts injecting politics into his jokes. Particularly since he's not a political comic or humorist, the way some other comics are.

Here's an example of one in poor taste: He's doing a joke about his brother buying a house, and says he advises his brother not to do that as his brother can't (supposedly) afford it. Larry then makes a derogatory remark that what pisses him off about the housing market crash (from 2008), is that all the people who bought houses who couldn't afford them, KNEW they couldn't afford them, and DIDN'T CARE what could happen or who could be hurt by their actions. (Which then elicits applause from the Nebraskan audience.)

Really, Larry? That's your belief? That everyone who bought a house and was part of the housing bubble that burst, is guilty of reckless and irresponsible behavior? This is the epitome ignorant thinking. Anyone with half a brain would know that making a statement like that -- and meaning it -- would be wrong. So... maybe my comment in the first paragraph above, about his extreme red neck tone and behavior being an act, is not an act. Maybe Larry the Cable Guy really isn't that smart.

Of course, he finishes this piece by going back to his brother and then joking about his brother's eventual foreclosure. (If the foreclosure part of his joke is true, why didn't Larry help his brother? Larry's got money, doesn't he??) But if this comic just left out the politics -- since he's apparently too ignorant to understand what really happened and ALL the factors that led to the housing collapse -- he'd be better off with his shows.
