Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy's "We've Been Thinkin' Tour" @Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall

I've been very fortunate to have now seen all four members of "Blue Collar Comedy." The first two were at Spirit Mountain Casino, Ron White  and Bill Engvall. I've waited many years to see Larry the Cable Guy, after he suddenly cancelled a solo show at the Schnitz. Well, good things come to those who wait, because I was invited to a Meet and Greet with both Larry and Jeff on this tour.  Oh, and while waiting to be escorted to the official one I was able to meet them both at the stage-door lobby. It was a fantastic show. There is no such thing as too much toilet humor, and both comedians made the most of that truism. Among my favorites was Foxworthy's telling of his battle with a kidney stone.

Larry the Cable Guy's set was hilarious, though I must confess I was just slightly disappointed that his "I was madder than...." joke didn't end with "a two-fingered cripple tryin' to send a text message," a line I've used countless times. To be fair, the way he did finish the line was in the same vein, "Ronnie Milsap in a corn-maze."

The Schnitzer is a wonderful, beautiful, venue with excellent wheelchair seating. This show was the realization of a dream.
