One of our all time favorite comedians is Jeff Foxworthy. For the past almost 30 years, he has been making people laugh so hard with his You Might Be A Redneck jokes. I mean, I’m not sure if there is one single person who either hasn’t heard or hasn’t said at least one You Might Be A Redneck joke in their lifetime.

Foxworthy was on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night and shared a story that made us go, “Really!?” Apparently, Jeff was playing a club in Detroit (even though we are pretty sure he talking about a certain club in Clinton Twp.) and people were joking with him about being a redneck because of his look and his accent. Jeff quickly pointed out that the comedy club attached to a bowling alley has valet parking. From there, Jeff wrote a few new jokes and people loved them and it took off from that point.

How cool is that story!? One of the greatest one-liners of all time, about rednecks, was created here in Detroit! Here is the whole video of Jeff explaining how You Might Be A Redneck came to be.
