Jeffrey M. Foxworthy (born September 6, 1958) is an American comedian, actor and game show host who is known for his work as a stand-up comedian. He is known for his "You Might Be a Redneck If . . ." jokes.
Early Life and Career
Foxworthy was born in Hapeville, a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, the first child of James Abstance and Carole Linda (Camp) Foxworthy. His grandfather James Marvin Camp was a Hapeville, Georgia, fireman for more than 30 years. Foxworthy graduated from Hapeville High School, and was a member of the class of 1979 at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. He worked for five years in mainframe maintenance at IBM (where his father also worked) before, where at the urging of co-workers, entering and winning the Great Southeastern Laugh-off at Atlanta's Punch Line comedy club in 1984.
Foxworthy has been married to Pamela Gregg since 1985 and has two daughters, Jordan (born in 1992), and Julianne (born in 1994) .
In 1993, he released You Might Be a Redneck If... which started the "You Might Be a Redneck" fad, topped the comedy album charts, and sold more than three million copies. In 1995, he starred in The Jeff Foxworthy Show, a sitcom created out of his stand-up comedy persona. It aired on ABC, but was canceled after one season. NBC subsequently picked up the show, but it was again canceled after one season. Foxworthy later remarked that the network did not understand how to properly market his humor; thinking his routine was "too Southern" for a national network ("Has anyone heard me talk?", he commented in one of his stand-up routines), they based the first season of his sitcom in Bloomington, Indiana. The run of the show was later seen on Nick at Nite and CMT in 2005 and 2006. Karen, Jeff's wife in the show was played by Anita Barone, his precocious son Matt by Haley Joel Osment and his brother Wayne by comedian Jay Mohr.

The show also airs in Canada on Global Television Network, in New Zealand on Prime Television New Zealand and in the Middle East on Dubai TV. The UK version of this show, Are You Smarter Than A 10 Year Old?, is shown on Sky One, hosted by Noel Edmonds. Blue Collar Comedy
In the early 2000s, Foxworthy had a career resurgence as a result of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, in which he and three other comedians (Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White, and Bill Engvall), specializing in common-man comedy, toured the country and performed for record crowds. The tour lasted three full years, constantly being extended after an initial run of 20 shows.
