Ron White in ConcertThough Ron White is best known as one of the Blue Collar Comedy stars, and there's no doubt that he's a man of the people, there's something cool and classy about his persona. Constantly sipping from a whiskey glass and dangling a cigarette from his fingers, he comes across as the kind of cutup you'd find hanging back at a bar watching and wisecracking about the folks getting soused around him. Of course, all the while he's just as loaded as any of them — as amply explained in some of his most widely beloved bits — but he manages to maintain his laid-back attitude enough to get you laughing at everybody else's antics instead of his. White revels in the everyday absurdities we all face from the minute we wake, and he finds a way to make them all insanely funny, whether he's tossing off a gut-busting one-liner or tucking into a long, gut-busting anecdote.
Ron White Background
The world at large first came to know Texan comic Ron White through the Blue Collar Comedy Tour in the early 2000s, with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. The distinctly different variations of down-home humor that each comic brought to the table made their tours some of the most successful in comedy history, and the same went for the quartet's albums and DVDs from their tours. But starting with 2003's Drunk in Public, White became a full-fledged comedy superstar under his own banner, and the many years of successful solo tours that followed would underscore his appeal. Along the way he's also been seen in movies like Sex and the City 2 and Horrible Bosses, as well as appearing on TV in such series as Roadies, Reno 911! and Kath & Kim.
