Funnyman Ron White “Tater Salad” Bringing Big Laughs Back to Rocksino on July 20

Back by popular demand!  Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White best known as the cigar smoking, scotch drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon performs at Hard Rock Rocksino, 8:00 p.m., Friday, July 20.  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.

From January 2000 – March 2003, Ron performed with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy in the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour,” a show that played to sold out audiences in over 90 cities and grossed over $15 million dollars.  Ron’s first solo comedy CD, “Drunk In Public,” was released in November 2003 showcasing the insightful and hilarious White. Also that year, his first one-hour comedy special, “They Call Me Tater Salad” earned Comedy Central the highest rated Sunday in its history.

Ron’s second one-hour special, “You Can’t Fix Stupid” aired on Comedy Central to 4.5 million viewers to make it the 3rd largest audience in Comedy Central’s history.  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.  For more information visit:  http://www.tatersalad.com or http://www.OrganicaMediaGroup.com.

Thanks for taking a few seconds to read this. I have been with MTRS since its inception. Love doing the live broadcasts and interviewing my hero's and other very interesting people over the decade of this. MTR is my therapy. Have always looked at this site and station as being part of the solution for the artists. We have NEVER pushed our own agenda, it has always been in the name of the bands, the music and the direction in which we have an influence in helping. We are part of the solution. Its simple! We are here to help bands and entertainers succeed. We go way far beyond of what is expected of a station/PR piece.
