'Gettin Er Done' In Orlando
By Douglas Lorah
I remember a few years back when there was this guy who used to call into one of our local radio stations. He cracked everyone up with his redneck philosophy. Shortly thereafter, he became a regular at the station.
That guy, Dan Whitney, is known more popularly as Larry The Cable Guy. He is now the hottest comedian in America by a few standards.
- only comedian to debut in the Billboard Top 10
- fastest selling stand-up comedy DVD - over 1 million units in its first week of release
- top-grossing touring comedian 2004 and 2005
He is now going to star in a movie entitled Larry The Cable Guy: Health Inspector. The movie will be filming in the Orlando area beginning August 1st.
You can register to be an extra in the movie on Saturday, July 23rd. Click here for more details.
J.P. Williams and Alan Blomquist of Parallel Entertainment Pictures are producing. This is the same company that produces the Blue Collar Comedy Tour DVDs.
Paramount Home Entertainment will distribute. This is the first project of a development deal between Paramount and Parallel.
Jonathan Bernstein and James Greer are the screenwriters.
Trent Cooper will direct. He is a director of commercials, shorts and documentaries, and directed The Comeback, a short starring Samuel Jackson that won an award at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.
