Will Ferrell at the Husker-USC game?

Larry the Cable Guy – who will be inducted into the Omaha Press Club’s “Faces on the Barroom Floor” on Friday, Aug. 17 – told Z-92’s Todd and Tyler this morning that actor Will Ferrell will be a guest in his skybox at Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium for the NU-USC football game on Sept. 15.

USC alum and mega fan Ferrell is one of the Trojans’ biggest cheerleaders. On the Husker side, Pawnee City, Neb., native Larry the Cable Guy (raised Daniel Lawrence Whitney) is one of NU’s biggest supporters.

FYI: The public is invited to attend the Press Club event. Dinner reservations are required. Call 345-8008 for reservations. Cost is $40 each for members and $50 for nonmembers.

An autograph session will begin at 5 p.m. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served at 5:30 p.m. The roast and toast begins at 7 p.m. followed by dinner.

Todd and Tyler are hosting the event, with talk-show host Chris Baker of KTRH in Houston among the roasters. Baker was formerly the morning show host on the Edge (101.9 FM), now Lite 101.9. He also had a talkshow on KKAR (1290 AM) before moving to Houston. Incidentally, Scott Voorhees, who hosts a talkshow on KFAB (1110 AM) was Baker's producer on the the Edge and KKAR.

How appropriate that Todd and Tyler are hosting a dinner for Larry the Cable guy, and that his buddy Will Ferrell will also be there. None of them are especially funny. None of them have much talent. And all four mostly appeal to folks with the social grace and skills of a kumquat.

Funny how Larry the Cable Guy's album was one of the best selling comedy albums of all time. Looks like there is more than just us "folks with the social grace and skills of a kumquat" that are fans. Git R Done.

I consider anybody who does well in their craft pretty doggone smart. If you actually listen to Larry's humor, it is very clever in its wordplay and unexpected turns. Just because he delivers it in a Pawnee City/Southern accent does not make him stupid or those who laugh at his jokes dumb. I suspect that he probably makes more than all of us in one comedy tour stop. He is getting the last laugh.

It's too bad that T&T are hosts for the event...more people might have attended. Should have kept the names of the hosts quiet as it would have sold more tix.

Second comment is a joke! Will Ferrell not funny, that is funny! I say at about 50 million a year, there must be a bit of talent.

Chris Baker used to be on "The Edge" in Omaha, was it 103.7 or 104.1, I think he had "The Early Show with Chris Early" on that station. Larry the Cable Guy was a featured guest on that station when it was competing with Todd and Tyler.

Saying Larry the Cable Guy or Will Farrell are funny just because they made money is like saying George Bush is a great leader because he wound up in the white house. And speaking of kumquats....

So how much kum does a quat?

The Omaha Press Club Face On The Bar Room floor used to be a major Civic honor...

Given to those that have, over a long period of time, provided much civic pride and or contributions..

Now it's all about selling tickets to the roast. That's it..That's all.

It's a sham of what it was.

Hi! My name is Larry The Cable Guy! To make a long story long, I was born in the back of an El-Camino during a Foghat concert many years ago! My mother was normal mother just like anybodys. She cooked, cleaned, kissed us goodnight, and was an Elvis impersonator on weekends! She actually looked more like the girl that played "Ralph The Carpenter" on Green Acres than Elvis, but she loved Elvis and actually sounded a little like him when she sang "Teddy Bear". She never won a contest, however one time no one else showed up and she took 3rd. My father saw action in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, and a Wal-Mart in Jackson, Mississippi! He lost a leg in a car accident in 1986. He rolled over three times and wound up in a ditch, and that was just walking to the car! He's been sober ever since, and since he only has one leg, he's been working at a brewery making hops!

I grew up in a good Christian home, I love freedom, the United States of America, Miss September and making boobs out of Playdough! I do political social commentaries on radio stations throughout America, and on this very web page! I started on a station in Tampa Bay and have been adding more stations every year! People ask me two questions. Number one, why are you called "The Cable Guy" and number two, how many licks does it take to get to the Tootisie roll center? Number one, I'm called Larry The Cable Guy cause my name's Larry and I used to install cable. Number two, forty five, unless your Rosie O'Donnell, then you just eat the stick all in one crunch. I ran for president in '92, '96, and am currently running again. I also ran for state senate in Florida, but ran outa money at a strip club in Daytona Beach! I'm the only candidate that tells it like it is! I feel that if you don't address the problems with true talk, then nothing will ever get solved. Nowadays the candidates talk the talk, but when it comes to walkin the walk, they trip and stumble like Ray Charles in a pumpkin patch!

I don't believe in solving problems by throwin money at them. I think political correct people are not solving problems but part of the problem and creating more! I believe I just pooped my pants! I believe in less government and more state control! I believe people should take personal responsibility. I believe all the telletubbies is queer, not just the purple one! I believe in the right to bear arms! Not only against scumbag criminals, but also against a tyrannical government! I believe my speling sucks! I believe Mary-Ann was a better piece of ass than Ginger! I believe that we are gradually losing personal freedoms and that if this trend continues, we will be living in a world of corporate socialism! I believe in a strong military, the Dukes Of Hazzards, and that chicken fried steak and gravy taste better than a cheerleader on game day! (I apologize) I believe the media stirs the fires of racism for ratings, and that they have sold there soul and this country out for their own gain! I believe Jesse Jackson, janet reno, Ted Turner, and the New Hollywood squares are all spawned from the devil himself! (Notice Janet Reno doesn't even deserve capital letters) I believe in free speech, especially 900 numbers!

My fellow Americans, remember, the more we become dependent on government as mommy and daddy, the more government has you under their authority just like mommy and daddy! I believe in America, and I believe in the people that live in it, and I believe if you don't like my site, than you're a commie and you need to get your fat ass off it!!

That's my story and my beliefs. I'm not racist, I'm not hateful, and I'm not homophobic! I'm just a concerned commentator wondering what happened to the free America that my forefathers fought and died for! Git-R-Done and GOD BLESS MY FANS AND THIS COUNTRY!!

Obviously, Jim Minge deserves a front row seat for his new job as promotions director for Todd & Tyler (a.k.a. Omaha City Weekly Media Watch).

I find it interesting Larry, that you complain about the networks playing the race card for ratings, and yet here you are ... an obvious living, thinking, intelligent human being selling yourself and all of Nebraska short by playing the idiot rube. Why do you continue to use the stupid hick routine? Well, for one thing, you found it works. Unfortunately, we live in an era where stupidity is celebrated rather then discouraged. People ask what is wrong with our country? In my opinion we do not do enough to celebrate excellence ... intelligence ... character. Instead we celebrate OJ Simpson, Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears and comics who act like they are red neck hicks. I think you are better than that, Larry. And hopefully, one of these days you, too, will realize it. As for kissing your rear ... no thanks ... I'll let you and the boys have your Saturday night fun all to yourself.
