Comedy Duo to Play Two Shows at RFD-TV The Theatre on Veterans Day November 11, 2015
(NASHVILLE, TN — SEPTEMBER 7, 2015) RFD-TV is teaming up with comedians Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy to bring the “We’ve Been Thinking” comedy tour to Branson, Missouri for two shows on Veterans Day, November 11, 2015. The superstar comedians will join forces for an unforgettable night of comedy at RFD-TV The Theatre. During this momentous event, both comedians will deliver a laughter-packed evening of all new material before they come together on stage for an uproarious encore you won’t want to miss! Show times are 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. Branson was selected as a key tour stop based the plethora of Veterans Day activities. With a record number of visitors in the untold thousands, it was the best place to show our gratitude and respect to those who’ve served.
“RFD-TV is so very proud to be the presenting sponsor for Jeff and Larry's upcoming comedy tour. Their values match up so well with RFD-TV's goals as we both strive to provide family oriented entertainment from a rural perspective. We are excited that they’ll be at our theatre on Veterans Day. It’s sure to be a fun-filled evening of rural humor,” said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of RFD-TV.
Jeff Foxworthy commented, “When I am not on stage I can usually be found on my farm on a tractor. For that reason, I’m thrilled to have RFD-TV as a sponsor for the new tour. There are so many wonderful things about this lifestyle and they do a great job of showcasing them. I for one hope I die with mud on my boots! I really look forward to the tour with new material and my great friend Larry the Cable Guy!"
Larry the Cable Guy echoed this sentiment: “I love RFD-TV and have watched it long before Patrick lost a lot of money to me at golf. To have them sponsor our show means a lot and I hope that through our shows we can help spread the word that RFD-TV is America’s greatest cheerleader. Git-R-Done!”
