Ron “Tater Salad” White, who first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, has long since established himself as a star in his own right. Over the past 15 years, White has been one of the top grossing stand-up comedians on tour in the country. His comedy recordings have sold over 14 million units (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), he’s been nominated for two Grammys, he was featured in the Cameron Crowe Showtime Series, Roadies, and he even authored a book that appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list.

Audience members might notice a change in the stage set up — while the cigar remains ever-present, White decided to forego his signature scotch drink in favor of a glass of tequila. In fact, he enjoyed the taste so much, he bought the company. Fans can purchase their very own bottle of White’s Number Juan Tequila, by visiting
