Comedian Ron 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, White has established himself as a star in his own right. White has always been a classic storyteller, relaying 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 four of his comedy albums charted #1 on the Billboard Comedy charts. He has sold more than 14 million albums (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), been nominated for three Grammys, and has been one of the top three grossing stand up comedians on tour in America.
Ron 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 himself, in 2000 White was asked to join the Blue Collar Comedy Tour alongside Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy. The show toured for over three years to sold out audiences in 270 cities and grossed more than $35 million. In 2003, Warner Brothers filmed the show, "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.
White's solo comedy career has hit strength after strength with his 2003 breakthrough comedy CD "Drunk In Public," and his first one-hour TV comedy special "They Call Me Tater Salad," bringing in the highest viewership for a Sunday program in Comedy Central's history and the DVD version reaching #1 on the Billboard Comedy chart. In 2005, White's second one-hour special "You Can't Fix Stupid" aired on Comedy Central to 4.5 million viewers, making it the third largest audience in Comedy Central's history and the #1 show on primetime basic cable and snagging White another #1 hit on the Billboard Comedy chart. All this success garnered White his first Grammy nomination and his second followed shortly after for the show "Blue Collar Comedy Tour - One for The Road." In 2006, the award winning comedian became a New York Times Bestselling Author with "Ron ‘Tater Salad' White: I Had the Right to Remain Silent...But I Didn't Have the Ability." In 2009, Ron released his third album, "Behavioral Problems," and his fourth in 2013, "A Little Unprofessional," both of which again took the #1 spot on the Billboard Comedy chart. All of Ron's DVDs are certified Platinum.
As an actor, Ron White has had supporting roles in the major motion films Horrible Bosses and Sex and the City 2. He also had a principal role in Jayne Mansfield's Car, written and directed by Billy Bob Thornton. He is a co-Executive Producer of Bridegroom, a Linda Bloodworth-Thomason documentary, which debuted at the 2013 NYC Tribeca Film Festival and won the Audience Award.
