NTEA names keynote speaker, opens registration

Comedian Jeff Foxworthy will be the keynote speaker at the president’s breakfast of the next Work Truck Show, scheduled for March 6-8, 2013 at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, IN. He will speak March 7.

Foxworthy is a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best-selling author of more than 26 books. In his Work Truck Show address, he’ll share his humor and experiences from a diverse and successful 27-year career in the entertainment industry.

Known for his redneck jokes, Foxworthy’s act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, with a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s. Foxworthy created and starred in the “Blue Collar TV” television series and hosted the hit show “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?”.

In recent years, Foxworthy has starred in “Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie” and several live comedy tours. Two sequels to the movie, “Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again” and “Blue Collar Comedy Tour-One for The Road,” broke Comedy Central ratings records. In 2011, Foxworthy reunited with his Blue Collar colleagues, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy, for the Them Idiots Whirled Tour. He currently hosts “The American Bible Challenge” on GSN.

“We’re very excited to have Jeff speak at the President’s Breakfast,” says Shawn Jacobs, NTEA 2012 Convention chairman and president & CEO of STS Trailer & Truck Equipment (Syracuse, NY). “I think he’s going to put everyone in a good mood and set the stage for a positive, successful Work Truck Show 2013.”

Tickets are $59 for NTEA members and $79 for nonmembers if purchased on or before Jan. 21, 2013. A ticket to the breakfast is also included in the Complete Event Package, which is $339 for NTEA members and $419 for nonmembers if purchased on or before Jan. 21, 2013.
