Thats a pretty good site for updates on all things Bigfoot.
According to a CMT bio, Whitney grew up on a pig farm in Pawnee City, Nebraska. He went to college at the now defunct Baptist University of America. He credits his roommates from Texas and Georgia for inspiring his imitation Southern accent. He dropped out after his junior year after trying his hand at comedy.
He became famous developing the Larry character, a personality that he now maintains throughout his stage act. The Larry character has a stereotypical redneck appearance, a thick Southern accent, recounts stories about his "family," and uses, among other common expressions, his own catchphrase "Git-R-Done!" A part of Whitney's routine is his affected Southern accent. He says in interviews and in his autobiographical book GIT-R-DONE that he deliberately "turns on" the accent both on and off stage, because he may forget it if he kept his normal accent intact
There is something to be said for someone embracing their uniqueness and originality as opposed to imitation of culture or alter ego personalities.

I'm sure he's a wonderful human being, but his act is a fraud and MANY people who don't know any better believe it, and imitate it. Bobcat Goldthwait is another example of a fake persona on stage, very entertaining but still, not real. That's the only point I was making, not attacking them on a personal level or stating he isn't funny or a good guy, I just don't agree with the fake redneck personas, or the fake Mexican performers (Carlos Mencia).
To me it's like Larry being himself, wasn't paying the bills, so he, or his agent, invented the redneck persona to be more of a success. If someone being fake to be funnier fills your twinkie, have fun with that, doesn't fulfill me though.
