Jeff Foxworthy Getting Musicians Addicted To Sketch Comedy

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A lot of country musicians are sketchy – or at least they are after Jeff Foxworthy gets done with them.

Foxworthy is the host of Foxworthy’s Big Night Out, which features a different country musician performing songs and skits in front of a live audience.

He admits he was surprised how many musicians were scared to do comedy but says once they got a few laughs “they were like heroin junkies and kept asking for more.”

Foxworthy says Kenny Rogers and Pat Green were really good at the skits and he was especially impressed with Sara Evans. As he puts it, “She jumped into it and was good at it.”

The series debuts September 1 on CMT and Foxworthy is offering $50,000 to any woman who has a child at the exact moment the show premieres: 8:30 p.m. EST.

He’s worried because, he admits, “I’m afraid some of my fans might use duct tape to hold off on labor so they can win the money.”
