THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING LIVE STAND-UP COMEDY IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
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
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
Jennfier Anniston and Kevin Spacey) and “Jayne Mansfield’s Car” (Billy
Bob Thorton and Robert Duvall).
In business, Ron co-founded his own media company “Organica Media Group” along with acclaimed Producer Michael Blakey.
