In February of 2017, Daniel Whitney, the comedic mind behind Larry the Cable Guy, sat down for an in-depth interview with Graham Bensinger. The pair discussed a variety of topics, including Whitney’s fake Southern accent.

Larry the Cable Guy is a huge star because he represents a segment of the population that goes largely unrepresented in mainstream media, but it’s important to remember that Larry the Cable Guy is not a real person. Daniel Whitney was born in Pawnee City, Neb., and grew up on a pig farm as the son of a preacher. It would not be until he went to college and met his Southern roommates that he learned how to perfectly speak in a Southern accent — which he absolutely nails!

And that’s why Daniel Whitney is secretly one of the greatest comedy performers of all time.
