He starred in the feature-length movie Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector, and also stared alongside close friend Bill Engvall in the film Delta Farce.
He started in Tampa Bay followed by stints at Rock 100 WDIZ and 101.1 WJRR Orlando before hooking up with the Blue Collar Boys. He became known in the South in the early '90s when he made regular guest radio appearances on programs such as the Ron and Ron Show. He was also a regular during the late 1990s on 101.9 The Edge in Omaha, Nebraska on Friday mornings when he would call into Chris Baker's morning show. "Larry"'s trademarks are "redneck"-style humor delivered while speaking in an affected thick Southern dialect, recounting bizarre stories about his "family," and the using the phrase "Git-R-Done!"
Often during his acts, a woman in the audience yells out that she loves him. He usually responds by saying, "I told you to wait in the truck" - a line cribbed from Tom Waits. He also sings Christmas songs like "Donny the Retard," "Titty Bar Christmas," and "I Pissed My Pants". He uses analogies like "Madder than a skinhead watching the Jeffersons," "Madder than a car load of queers getting pulled over for doin a 69 in a 55".
In 2005, he was featured in Gretchen Wilson's music video for the song "All Jacked Up," playing dual roles as himself and a transvestite bar patron. In 2006, he starred in the film Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector and was the voice of Mater the tow truck in Disney/Pixar's animated film Cars.

- LyricsSome girl's banging on my door the other day at four o'clock in the morning. I was like, "What in the world?" You know? So I got up and let her out. Tell you what, I was madder than Janet Reno's blind date.
I met this guy a while back, looked like Shania Twain. Only a little shorter, and, uh, faces were different. I was drunk, it looked like Shania Twain. Next morning Mark Twain is laying there next to me there, he--ho, ho--she was ugly, now. I take her to Glamour Shops, get her an estimate, you know. She was--man, she was ugly right there. She had marks on her from where people had been touching her with the ten-foot poles!
I don't like Miami too much though, there's a lot of drugs and stuff. I was down there in broad daylight, car drive by, says, "You want some cocaine?"
I'm like, "No, officer."
I don't do drugs. I don't know what I'm doing. I tried smoking mushrooms once, couldn't keep the pizza lit, you know, so I quit doing that. I tell you, I was madder than a three-legged dog trying to bury a turd on an icy lake, I tell you what.
