RON WHITE, AUG. 4
For Immediate ReleaseMon, Mar 6, 2017
Two shows, one night; tickets on sale Saturday
RENO, NV (March 6, 2017) – Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, 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. 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. All 4 of his comedy albums 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 over the past 9 years (since 2004) been one of the top three grossing stand-up comedians on tour in America. White will perform at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4 at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino.
White began performing comedy in 1986 and was quickly opening for legendary comedians Sam Kinison and Jeff Foxworthy. After eventually becoming a comedy club headliner, in 2000 White was asked to join the Blue Collar Comedy Tour alongside Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. The show toured for over three years to sold-out audiences in over 270 cities and grossed more than $35 million. In 2003, Warner Brothers filmed “Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie” for a theatrical/TV/DVD/CD release. The film premiered as the most-watched movie in Comedy Central’s history. In 2005, the video Blue Collar Comedy Tour Rides Again was filmed and released on TV and DVD/CD.
Tickets will go on sale Saturday, March 11 for $59.50 and $69.50 and can be purchased at SilverLegacy.com or by calling 775-325-7401.
