– Jeff Foxworthy: The Good Old Days Review Does Not Contain Spoilers –
Jeff Foxworthy is a famous American comedian, television and radio personality. He has hosted television shows like, What’s It Worth?, Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader, and American Bible Challenge. He is also the bestselling author of more than 26 books. He is well known as a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, which also comprises Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall and Ron White.
In his first solo standup special in 24 years, Jeff Foxworthy talks about the “good old days”. Ah, the nostalgia is definitely the center stage of his comeback special. He talks about the days before everyone had a cellphone with a billion features. The struggle that people of his generation had to go through just to have a private conversation with their loved ones, without a reactionary audience making noises in the background. Carrying the lengths of hoopy-loopy telephone wires through the living room to the pantry, hoping nobody in the family trips on it.
But now, you can diagnose yourself with a cerebral haemorrhage while searching how to cure a hanging nail. Mindblowing, right? While talking about technology & the joys of getting butt dials, he jokes about how difficult it is to teach old people to use an iPhone. If given a chance to teach his mother how to text or to teach the dog how to wipe his ass, Jeff Foxworthy will be out & about with a toilet roll.
You can talk to anyone above the age of 40 & they will tell you all about the good old days. Those were the simpler times, right? Or was it? Times are never simpler they are ever changing & evolving every moment. I mean even the most popular Gen Z content runs on nostalgia. With a new mind boggling technology everyday, we often reminisce about the time when it was most familiar to us. Like I think about the time when Facebook was “the hot new thing” and not my mum’s online tea party.
Jeff Foxworthy in his Netflix special, The Good Old Days, further jokes about how easy it is to sext anyone now & if he were to do that in his younger days, he would have to actually draw it out & post it in a letter. Meanwhile worrying that it doesn’t get mistaken for a thumb. His jokes about the difference between men & women when it comes to packing got the most roars & nudging in the audience. Men are done packing in 10 seconds meanwhile women start packing 2 days prior & are still not done till the last minute. Gives me flashback of my last trip where I packed so many outfits only to repeatedly wear the same thing in different order.
