Daniel Lawrence Whitney is an American stand up comedian and actor with a net worth estimate of $50 million. Lawrence better known to most people as "Larry the cable guy" was born on February 17, 1963. He grew up in Pawnee City, Nebraska. His father was a very well known man in the community because he was a minister. When Larry turned sixteen him and his family packed up their bags and moved to Palm Beach County, Florida. He attended The King's Academy where his father was principal. He would not graduate from there but from Berean school, in 1981. After high school Larry began working at Wendy's for four years. He quit when he began to become part of the Palm beach comedy scene. In 1991, he began doing radio comedy when he would call up radio stations in different characters. It was through this venture that the "Larry the cable guy" persona was born.
The cable character became a staple of his routine. The character consists of his trademark Southern accent and talks about topics anywhere from family stories to jokes about his redneck "background". He even has his own catchphrase "Git-R-Done!" Larry's fame really came into fruition in 2000 when fellow comedian and friend Jeff Foxworthy (the two met years earlier on Foxworthy's radio show) invited Larry to join his "Blue Collar Comedy tour". Rounding off the group with Larry and Foxworthy was comedian Bill Engvall. The tour became a monster success which grossed $15 million. To top it all of when the tour was released as a live comedy DVD it sold over a million copies. Larry followed this success and newfound fame with two CD's, both of which were huge successes. With all of his success on stage and in the recording industry there was still one place he had to leave his mark… the big screen. In 2006, Larry brought the Cable guy to cinemas across the Country with Larry the cable guy: Health inspector he bring the character back once again in with Delta Farce. A year later Larry would appear in "Witless Protection" and though he didn't play the cable guy character he played a variation of him. Larry continues to perform and was last seen in 2009 with Larry the Cable guy's Hula-Palooza Christmas Luau. He currently resides in Sanford, Florida with his spouse Cara and two sons Wyatt the cable guy and Reagan the cable guy.
