Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, best known as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy phenomenon, returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall for 2 shows on January 26th, 2012!
Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, best known as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy phenomenon, returns to Ruth Eckerd Hall.
White has always been a classic storyteller. His routines relay tales from his real life; ranging from growing up in a small town in Texas to joining the ranks of some of the most successful comedians in America.
He is a certified platinum-selling artist: having sold more than 10 million #1 albums, he has been nominated for two GRAMMYs® and continues to be one of the top five grossing comedians on tour. Furthermore, White’s three Comedy Central stand-up specials are the top three rated specials in Comedy Central history.
After gaining momentum with his stand-up, White was asked to join Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour in 2000. The tour played to sold-out audiences in more than 90 cities and grossed more than $35 million. The group toured for more than three years, during which Warner Bros. filmed the guys’ stand-up, leading to the theatrical release of the film Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie in 2003. The film’s premiere on Comedy Central still remains one of the highest rated movies in the channel’s history.
In March 2006, White’s second one-hour special You Can’t Fix Stupid aired on Comedy Central to 4.5 million viewers, making it the third largest audience in Comedy Central’s history and the number one show in primetime on basic cable. The CD quickly went to # 1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts, topping the charts for nine consecutive weeks and nabbing a GRAMMY® nomination. Ron also received a second GRAMMY® nomination 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. Written in the same style as his comedy routines, Ron’s authorial debut landed him on the New YorkTimes Best Seller List.
