Comedian Ron White always brings a large crowd when he plays Rockford, and that's why he always returns to The Forest City.

Ron "Tater Salad" White is best known as the cigar smoking, scotch drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour”. His accomplishments are no joke, the success this hard working comedian has experienced are epic.

  • Three Grammy nominations
  • Gold Record
  • Two of the top rated one-hour specials in Comedy Central history
  • New York Times Best Seller List
  • CD and DVD sales of over 10 million

I've met Ron in the past, and he is a very wealthy yet a humble individual. Always so grateful for the fans that pay for the fuel for his private jet.

I had a chance to ask Ron "Tater Salad" White 5 questions, before he comes to town this weekend. Topics discussed with Tater Salad:

  • Geese
  • Drinking
  • Death
  • Tony Awards
