Larry the Cable Guy lights up audience with many one-liners

Sorry, Larry. If you’re gonna give up the jokes on Twitter, we’re gonna repeat ’em here.

And that it will be “the first time the NFL will have teams on artificial turf and grass.”

But Larry thinks up a lot of jokes, so we’re sure he will have others by the time he brings his stand-up to the Palms on Friday. He has to.

“I’ll write 50 one-liners, and that’s probably 12 minutes (of material),” the man sometimes known as Dan Whitney noted a few years ago.
