Ron White, the Grammy-nominated comedian known as “Tater Salad,” returns to the WVU Creative Arts Center with his new “A Little Unprofessional” tour. Two shows are set for April 19 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets go on sale Monday, Nov. 12 at 10 a.m. at the Mountainlair and Creative Arts Center Box Offices, and by phone at 800-745-3000 or 304-293-SHOW. These performances are recommended for mature audiences only.

Ron White is best known as the cigar smoking, scotch drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon. But with two Grammy nominations, a Gold Record, three of the top rated one-hour TV specials in Comedy Central history, a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List, and CD and DVD sales of over 10 million units, White has established himself as a star in his own right. Over the past five years he has been one of the top three grossing comedians on tour in the United States. In 2008 and 2010, he performed multiple sell-out shows in Morgantown that had audiences howling with laughter.

White’s 2009 comedy album and special “Behavioral Problems” quickly hit the top of the charts, following along the tradition that has helped to make him one of our generation’s most popular comics. His wry humor is clearly honed from his decades bouncing from one comedy club to the next, making a place for himself in the world of satirical comedians.
