Blue Collar TV

A heapin' helpin' of hillbilly hilarity, "Blue Collar TV" takes the popular comedy tour and twists routines into sketch comedy bits. It breaks no new ground in the Jeff Foxworthy-led world of redneck humor -- jokes about gravy and fat people either tickle the funny bone or come off as puerile and insubstantial. It's all rudimentary humor, one step above a pie in the face or a kick in the groin.

With:
Starring: Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy.

A heapin’ helpin’ of hillbilly hilarity, “Blue Collar TV” takes the popular comedy tour and twists routines into sketch comedy bits.

It’s all rudimentary humor, one step above a pie in the face or a kick in the groin.

Obvious is their specialty. But as much as the jokes are one-note affairs, they don’t play out at excruciating lengths. One involves a family at a restaurant with no gravy. Discouraged, they try another eatery that puts gravy, lots of it, on everything.

Another takes place at a funeral where mourners place items next to the deceased — everything from a six-pack to the inevitable bag of golf clubs. With “you know you’re a redneck if” thankfully retired, “Blue Collar” revives the collection of Southern witticisms with “I believe” followed by comments for the NASCAR set.

Show’s highlight finds the three stars — Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy — as youngsters strapped into child seats in the back of a car. It’s goofy but universal.

Week two may get a lift via guest comedian Ron White, who has kicked redneck humor up a notch in his standup routines.
