-Ron White, Comedian
For the last three and a half years, RON WHITE has performed with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry, The Cable Guy, on “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour”.

Currently Ron is headlining in theaters and comedy clubs across the United States.
On November 11, 2003, Ron made his solo comedy CD debut with “Drunk in Public” which will be distributed by Universal Music. “Drunk In Public,” showcases the insightful and hilarious White, who manages to be both razor sharp and blunt.
Ron appeared on “The Late Show With David Letterman” in October 2002 and on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend”, which aired in December of 2002. He also taped his own half-hour Stand-Up special for Comedy Central Presents, which began airing May 2003.

Ron appeared at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in 2001 and was voted “Best Act of the Friday Night Gala” by Anne Sutherland; he also scored “Best Joke” and “Artistic Impression” by Bill Brownstein, both of “The Gazette”.
Having earned rave reviews in Montreal in 2001, Ron returned for the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in 2002. The Hollywood Reporter noted Ron earned “strong reviews” for his performances in the “Masters Show” and “Nasty Show” where he was featured with the likes of Robert Schimmel and Dave Attell. Ron also appeared at the 2002 Chicago Comedy Festival.
“White’s inspired comic mind finds a dozen sources of humor where the average comic would find only one or two, while making a fine art of the deadpan style.”
