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.
