Ron "Tater Salad" White in Long Beach Feb. 18

Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White, best known as the cigar smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon, returns to the Terrace Theater/Long Beach Performing Arts Center with his new stand-up show, Moral Compass, for one night only on Saturday, February 18, at 7:00PM.

Ron White has always been a storyteller; from the time he was growing up in a small town in the middle of Texas to selling windows for a living in Arlington to performing in sold-out theaters and arenas as a headlining comedian all across the country. For two decades he lived the life of a struggling comedian, bouncing around in comedy clubs and driving to gigs in his pick-up truck. In short, he paid his dues.

White has received two Grammy nominations, a Gold Record, two of the top rated one-hour specials in Comedy Central history, a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List and CD/DVD sales of over 10 million units.

“Expect a ton of laughs from the razor-sharp Texan and his unique humor,” said Dan Spellens, Director of Theaters & Entertainment for the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center. “We are thrilled to welcome back this gifted comedian to the Terrace Theater,” he concluded.

Tickets will be available beginning Friday, November 18th, at 10:00AM Ticket prices are $46 and $56 and can be purchased through TicketMaster at (800) 745-3000 or by visiting Tickets are also available at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center Main Box Office located at 300 E.
