Jeff Foxworthy

More than 10 years ago, Jeff Foxworthy decided to quit his job as an IBM engineer to work the comedy club circuit. In his first six years on the road, he won the Great Southeastern Laff-Off, the Zanies/Pepsi-Cola Laff-Off, and the Coors Laff-Off. In 1990, he captured the award for “Best Stand-Up Comic” at the American Comedy Awards. After critical acclaim and rave reviews for his first Showtime special, he landed a second, which went on to earn a Cable ACE Award nomination. Rejected six times by Star Search for being “too Southern,” Foxworthy is now one of the hottest comedians around, with seven bestselling books and two multi-platinum comedy albums–You Might Be a Redneck If . . . (the biggest-selling comedy album of all time) and Games Rednecks Play. His primetime-TV sitcom, The Jeff Foxworthy Show, airs each week on ABC. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Foxworthy currently resides in Los Angeles, California, with his wife and two daughters.
