Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best-selling author of more than 26 books. In 2014, he was inducted in the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s.

He may be best known as the creator and founder of the wildly successful Blue Collar Comedy Tour. The Comedy Tour spawned three concert films and a hit television show of the same name. Jeff has executive produced and starred in a number of television shows including "Foxworthy’s Big Night Out" and the animated series "Bounty Hunters" for CMT. In addition he has filmed a number of comedy specials for HBO, Showtime and Comedy Central.

Jeff has hosted several game shows including the hit show Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader. He has also hosted numerous award shows and three seasons of The American Bible Challenge. Jeff was nominated for a 2014 daytime Emmy award for Best Game Show Host and in his first foray into television he was bestowed with a People’s Choice Award as "Favorite Male Newcomer" for The Jeff Foxworthy Show.

Jeff’s bestselling books include the children’s books, Dirt On My Shirt, and Hide!!! which won a 2011 Mom’s Choice Award for illustrated children’s books. Both books were on the New York Times bestseller list. He has voiced a number of different characters in children’s movies including Handy Smurf in "The Smurfs" and "The Smurfs 2", the voice of Reggie the Rooster in the Warner Bros. film Racing Stripes and Lyle in the Disney movie Fox and The Hound II.
