People in L.A. think Southerners are idiots. (1:36)

WHAT'S UP NEW YORK?

[CHEERS AND WHISTLES]

YEAH.

YEAH.

OKAY.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN TELL

RIGHT OFF THE BAT,

BUT I'M NOT FROM THE CITY.

ANY CITY.

[LAUGHTER]

PICK A CITY.

NO.

[LAUGHTER]

I'M ORIGINALLY FROM A

LITTLE TOWN IN NORTH CAROLINA

CALLED--

AH, HEY.

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF HICKORY?

[APPLAUSE]

NO WAY, I DON'T BELIEVE YOU.

HICKORY'S OKAY.

BUT YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE WHEN--

I KNEW I WAS DESTINED TO BE

LIKE A REDNECK, YOU KNOW WHEN

YOUR TOWN'S NAME CONTAINS THE

WORD "HICK".

[LAUGHTER]

WHY DIDN'T THEY JUST NAME IT

"HILLBILLERY"?

[LAUGHTER]

HEY, WELCOME TO "REDNECKERY".

GROW OUT YOUR MULLET AND LIVE

IN THE "TRAILERPARKERY".

AH-HA-HA!

'CAUSE THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE THINK,

MAN.

IT'S TRUE.

I LIVE IN L.A. NOW.

AND IT IS NOT EASY LIVING IN

L.A. AND BEING FROM THE SOUTH.

PEOPLE THINK YOU'RE AN IDIOT.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY GET THAT

IDEA.

[LAUGHTER]

BUT WHEN THEY HEAR MY ACCENT

FOR THE FIRST TIME, YOU KNOW,

I CAN TELL THEY'RE LOOKING AT ME

AND THEY'RE JUST WAITIN' FOR ME

TO SAY SOMETHING YOU KNOW,

LIKE WHAT ARE SHOES FOR?

[LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE]
