Ron White made his hay as a member of "The Blue Collar Comedy Tour," alongside fellow sons of the South Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy. The show played to sold-out audiences in over 90 cities, with appearances on LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, Comedy Central, and CAROLINE'S COMEDY HOUR, where White crafted his self-deprecating comedic chops to a razor's edge. His debut album DRUNK IN PUBLIC is a hilarious delight. Unlike Foxworthy and Engvall, White eschews song parodies and instead goes straight to observational humor.
With the sound of ice clinking in his glass of booze, raspy-voiced White rails against vegetarians and Hollywood fakes ("Ten Days In Los Angeles"), the problems with marrying into a rich family ("Married a Wealthy Woman"), and the pretentious in-laws that come with it ("Lug Nut Day"). White wraps up this tight package of laughs with "They Call Me 'Tater Salad'," a story that cleverly explains his unusual nickname and the title DRUNK IN PUBLIC.
