Comedian Ron White has become a familiar face after being beamed into millions of homes courtesy of Comedy Central's "Blue Collar Comedy Tour." But don't hold that against him.
The whiskey-swilling, cigar-smoking comedian of many hairstyles, who comes to the University at Buffalo Center for the Arts for two shows tonight, isn't all trailer-park jokes and quips about country music and pickup trucks. Granted, there's a certain low-brow quality to White's particularly misanthropic brand of comedy, but it's also imbued with a sense of storytelling and good-natured ribbing that's likely to amuse no matter what social stratum you're from.
White performs at 7:30 and 10:30 tonight. Both shows are sold out.
