Known as Uncle Lar’ Larry Reeb is the wise-cracking black sheep, politically incorrect relative everyone knows. Like any concerned relative Uncle Lar’ wants to help. So, in his own twisted way he does. He gives you “tips”. Uncle Lar’ offers tips on everything from marriage to lotteries to children. Always topping them off with, “That’s a tip from your Uncle Lar’.” Reeb is a strong, distinct, classic character, with sarcastic attitude and a sardonic wit. He conveys his concepts with rapid fire one liners. “It’s a sick world and I’m a happy guy”, Reeb proudly announces after stating his particularly twisted observations. Reeb didn’t invent obscene phone calls or adultery, but he makes his living talking about them. In a perfect world Uncle Lar’ would be unemployed.
