Making other people laugh is a very tough job in the world. However, many individuals have risen to fame through comedy. Making critical comments and sometimes even "racist" accusations, comedy is a tough job as easy as it looks.
But besides all that cheers and laughter, their personal life might not be as happy as on stage. For example, we can just look at the married life of Mary Lee Harvey and her husband who divorced. Jeff Foxworthy, however, seems to have a pretty fair and happy married life; and is a dedicated family man.
Jeff Foxworthy Blissful Married Life, Wife, and Kids
Jeff has had a pretty successful professional career, and his decision to step into comedy rather than following his father's footsteps in the business industry seems to have paid off finally. With his jokes (and quotes) mostly based on family related issues; it has been said that he derives most of his comedy from his life, wife, and kids at home.
How about a big Happy Anniversary to @foxoutdoors and Pamela Gregg! 30 years is amazing. I'm sure there's a redneck joke in there somewhere.— Al Quackenbush (@SoCalBowhunter) September 18, 2015

As we discussed earlier, Jeff derives his humor and inspiration from his family, and that surely makes his daughters very dear to him. However, 2010 was not an easy year for Jeff after he had to deal with his elder daughter leaving home for college. In an interview with miami.com, he said that he was "depressed" and "mourning" because of it.Jeff also stated,
"I love what I do, but the girls were always my priority. I don't know how good a comedian or actor I am, but I've been a good dad. You don't know how many projects I've turned down because it would have meant being away from them".
All this can explain what his family means to him, although work is something he can't live without, his family comes first before anything.
