Jeffrey Marshall “Jeff” Foxworthy is a stand-up comedian and actor who rose to fame with his ‘You might be a redneck’ one-liners. More than just a comic or a television personality, he is also a best selling author of more than 26 books. In a career spanning over a quarter of a century, Foxworthy has released six comedy albums, two of which were certified multi-platinum in the U.S. The son of an IBM executive, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and aimed for a corporate career, but as luck would have it, he happened to participate in the 'Great Southeastern Laugh-off' held at Atlanta’s 'Punchline' comedy club. This success convinced him to ditch his corporate job and try his hand at a comedic career. Today he is regarded as one of the largest selling comedy-recording artists and has been nominated for the Grammy Award. He has made several forays into television as well and launched his own sitcom, ‘The Jeff Foxworthy Show.' He also hosted the ‘Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?’ and several other television shows that boosted his mass appeal tremendously. He is a member of one of the most successful comedy tours of all time, ‘The Blue Collar Comedy Tour,’ which also has Larry the Cable Guy and Ron White as its members.
