WHAT: Comedy of RON WHITE
Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White is best known as the cigar smoking, scotch drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon. But with two Grammy nominations, a Gold Record, three of the top rated one-hour TV specials in Comedy Central history, a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List, and CD and DVD sales of over 10 Million units, Ron has established himself as a star in his own right. Over the past 5 years he has been one of the top 3 grossing comedians on tour in the United States.

Ron has always been a storyteller; relaying stories from the time he was a boy growing up in a small town in the middle of Texas oil country to selling windows for a living in Arlington to performing in sold-out theaters and arenas as a headlining comedian all across the country. For two decades he lived the life of a struggling comedian bouncing around to comedy clubs and driving to gigs in his beat-up Nissan pickup truck to becoming a successful middle act club comic. He paid his dues.

Then it happened. From January 2000 through March 2003, Ron performed with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy in the highly acclaimed “Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” a show that played to sold out audiences in over 90 cities and grossed over $15 million dollars. Warner Bros filmed the tour and “Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie” was released as a major motion picture in theaters in March 2003 later premiering on Comedy Central as the highest rated movie in the channel’s history.

Ron’s first solo comedy CD, “Drunk In Public,” was released in November 2003 showcasing the insightful and hilarious White, who manages to be both razor-sharp and blunt. Also that year, his first one-hour comedy special, “They Call Me Tater Salad” earned Comedy Central the highest rated Sunday in its history. The DVD/CD has sold over 2.5 million copies to date and has been certified Multi-Platinum.

Ron’s second one-hour special, “You Can’t Fix Stupid” was filmed in January 2006 at the Majestic Theater in Dallas, TX. The special aired on Comedy Central to 4.5 million viewers to make it the 3rd largest audience in Comedy Central’s history and the #1 show in prime time on basic cable. The CD premiered at #14 on Billboard’s Top 200, ranked #1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts for 9 consecutive weeks and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Ron also received a second Grammy nomination that year for the CD, “Blue Collar Comedy Tour - One for The Road.”

In June 2006, Penguin Books released Ron “Tater Salad” White: I Had the Right to Remain Silent…But I Didn’t Have the Ability. The book debuted on the New York Times Best Seller List. It perfectly sums up Ron’s life and his comedy and is filled with over 80 illustrations by acclaimed artist Mathew Shultz.

Ron had a supporting acting role in the feature film “Sex and the City 2,” and has a role in the upcoming “Horrible Bosses” (starring Jennifer Anniston and Kevin Spacey) and “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” (Billy Bob Thornton and Robert Duvall).

In business, Ron co-founded his own media company “Organica Media Group” along with acclaimed Producer Michael Blakey.

      Yikes --that's a bummer, Jocelyn, but it IS traffic at 5:30;) I live downtown and I'm just grateful there's an opening act to give me a bit more time. I hope we can meet after the show and do something:)

    Hi! :) Is it too late to be included in any plan you all may have after the show? My 1914 home is now in its first phase of remodeling and I've been somewhat of a basket case and haven't been in touch with the group to find out what's going on. I'm in the Orchestra Level and I should be able to make it there JUST in time for the show:)

      Yes purchase your own tickets. I had some available for a long time.. but no one signed up in time for them. Let me know where your seats are located. Are you up for meeting for dinner before the show or after?

      That doesn't sound like a bad idea. The show starts at 7 though not 8 right? Where did you wanna go to eat? My husband and I would be taking the light rail.

    Hi Mike, Should we purchase tickets on our own or do we need to buy them as a group?
