Ron White Made Country Comedy Cool, and Now, You Can See Him Live in Durham

Ron White has always been a classic storyteller. His stories relay tales from his real life, ranging from growing up in a small town in Texas to sharing stories of his daily life to becoming one of the most successful comedians in America. Now, listen to White speak on his life’s challenges and successes during a special event at Durham Performing Arts Center on Friday, November 2nd.

Blue Collar Comedy phenomenon Ron “Tater Salad” White first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, but now as a chart-topping Grammy-nominated comedian and a feature film actor, Ron White has established himself as a star in his own right. All four of White’s comedy albums have charted #1 on the Billboard Comedy Charts. He has sold over 14 million albums (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), been nominated for two Grammys, and, since 2004, has been one of the top touring stand-up comedians in America.

Ron has been a passionate supporter of the US military troops for more than 20 years, donating his time and resources. In 2008, he created an annual charity show Ron White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops. The profit from ticket/DVD sales is donated to the Armed Forces Foundation to assist troops and their families. In 2011, the show was recorded for TV/DVD and was the second highest-watched show on CMT that year.

White is a co-Executive Producer of Bridegroom, a Linda Bloodworth–Thomason documentary, which debuted at the 2013 NYC Tribeca Film Festival and won the Audience Award. In 2016, Ron White’s acting talents were showcased alongside Luke Wilson, Carla Gugino, and Imogen Poots, in music-industry veteran Cameron Crowe's Showtime series, Roadies.

Don’t miss what promises to be a night of homegrown hilarity as Ron White takes the stage at the Durham Performing Arts Center! Tickets are available for purchase online, by phone or in-person at the box office.
