Larry the Cable Guy cancels Hobbs show

........................................................................................................................................................................................

HOBBS — Larry the Cable Guy has canceled a couple of upcoming performances in New Mexico and Utah due to an injury he suffered on a movie set.

The Hobbs News-Sun reports the blue-collar comedy actor was hurt in a fall Wednesday night while on set filming in Vancouver, British Columbia. He won’t be traveling to Hobbs for a scheduled show.

Lea County economic development administrator Lyn Edwards says the event center received news Thursday morning that the comedian would not be making the April 5 performance.

Edwards says the comedian, whose real name is Daniel Whitney, was taken to the hospital after his injury but is expected to recover.

He also canceled an upcoming Orem, Utah, show.

Whitney was a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which also included Bill Engvall, Ron White and Jeff Foxworthy.
