Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, who first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, has long since established himself as a star in his own right. Over the past 15 years, White has been one of the top grossing standup comedians on tour in the country.

His comedy recordings have sold over 14 million units (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), he’s been nominated for two Grammys, he was featured in the Cameron Crowe Showtime Series, “Roadies,” and he even authored a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List.

Hot on the heels of his highly successful Netflix special, “If You’d Quit Listening, I’d Shut Up,” Ron White is once again hitting the ground running, with a slew of new tour dates just announced for 2020. From Washington, DC to Milwaukee; Atlanta to Austin; Music City to Sin City, and numerous points in between- Don’t miss your chance to “Catch the Tater!”
