Comedian Ron White

Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, who first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue-Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, has long since established himself as a star in his own right.

White first stepped onto a comedy club stage in Arlington, Texas, in September 1986, and now, more than 35 years later, is consistently one of the top grossing stand-up comedians in the country. In fact, he was nominated for Pollstar’s Comedy Touring Artist of the Decade. His comedy recordings have sold more than 14 million units (solo and with the Blue-Collar Comedy Tour). He has been nominated for two Grammy awards, was featured in the Cameron Crowe Showtime Series, “Roadies,” and authored a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Don’t miss your opportunity to watch Ron White live at the Peabody Auditorium.
