Rising to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch drinking comedian from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, Ron White is now a GRAMMY-nominated comedian and feature film actor. Relaying stories from his upbringing in rural Texas, he has recorded four comedy albums, all of which charted #1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts. Selling a combined 14 million albums from his solo performances and those with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, White has been nominated for two Grammys as one of the top grossing stand up comedians on tour in America.
White has been performing comedy since 1986 working his way up to becoming a comedic headliner. In 2000, he was asked to join the Blue Collar Comedy Tour alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy touring for over three years to sold-out audiences. In 2003, Warner Brothers filmed the show Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie for TV/DVD/CD release and it premiered as the most-watched movie in Comedy Central’s history.
In November 2003, White released his breakthrough comedy CD Drunk in Public shortly followed by his first one-hour comedy special, They Call Me Tater Salad. In addition to his comedy shows and performances, Ron has become a popular actor in supporting roles in major feature films such as Horrible Bosses and Sex and the City 2.
Throughout his career, White has been a passionate supporter of the US military troops for more than 20 years, donating his time, talents and resources. In 2008, he created an annual charity show Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops with proceeds going to the Armed Forces Foundation to assist troops and their families.
