The Naked Trucker And T-Bones
Born as a live musical comedy act that grew to excessive popularity at West Hollywood nightclub Largo, The Naked Trucker and T-Bones is also now a regular Comedy Central program characterized by an inordinately complicated and cerebral humor. Let's see if we can break it down a little: There's this trucker, see, and he doesn't wear clothes -- just a ball cap, a pair of work boots, and his guitar (say it "gee-tar"). And this trucker (played by Dave "Gruber" Allen) drives naked as a jay bird across America in his eighteen-wheeler, singing songs, touting his every(working)man philosophy, and just l-i-v-i-n'. Along the way, he meets Gerald "T-Bones" Tibbons (David Koechner), a man of questionable parentage and questionable morals, who joins the Trucker for freeloading and fun on the open road. Appearances on programs like Late Night with Conan O'Brien and gigs with Tenacious D led to the Comedy Central show (featuring guest stars such as Will Ferrell and Andy Richter) and a live album, released on Warner Bros.
