Comedy

Ron White

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 7 & 10 p.m. 2017

A quick survey of Ron “Tater Salad” White’s promotional materials indicates it’s almost impossible to capture photographic evidence of the former “Blue Collar” comic without a cigar in one hand and a scotch on the rocks in the other, so it’s only fitting that the premium VIP ticket package for his current tour is called the “200-Proof Experience.” For those of you drinking along at home, that’s 100 percent pure alcohol — two shots of Wild Turkey, hold the Turkey — and its White superfan (aka member of the “Rontourage”) equivalent includes an autographed pass, access to a post-show Q&A, a DVD copy of White’s Comedy Salute to the Troops and even a CD recorded by White’s wife, singer Margo Rey. Such a cross-promotion might seem out of place for another comic, but the personal nature of White’s storytelling guarantees true obsessives access to detailed accounts of his life with every stand-up special and podcast appearance. He’s essentially America’s drunken uncle who’s actually funny, so getting his family in on the act is as natural as the next round.
