• Ron White adds a late show April 28

    St. Petersburg, Fla. (March 6, 2017) A 10 p.m. show has been added for comedian Ron White Friday, April 28 at the Duke Energy Center for the Arts – Mahaffey Theater.

    Cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White’s droll Texas humor has made him one of America’s most popular performers. White was a founding member of Comedy Central’s “Blue Collar Comedy” gang, along with Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy.

    Ron has always been a storyteller; relaying stories from the time he was a boy growing up in a small town in the middle of Texas oil country to selling windows for a living in Arlington to performing in sold-out theaters and arenas as a headlining comedian all across the country.

    Tickets for the 10 p.m. show, $47.75 and $57.75, go on sale Friday, March 10 at 10 a.m. Bill Edwards Foundation for the Arts members can purchase tickets beginning today at noon.
