Comedian Ron "Tater Salad" White is best known as the cigar
smoking, scotch drinking funny man 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.
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,
and became a major motion picture.
Ron's first solo comedy CD, "Drunk In Public," was released in
November 2003, and went Multi-Platinum.
Ron's second one-hour special, "You Can't Fix Stupid" (January
2006) 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.
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.
