Blue Collar Comic’s Blue Material Makes Him The Lenny Bruce Of The Heartland

ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comedian Ron “Tater Salad” White’s blue material makes him the black sheep of the wildly popular Blue Collar comedy movement.

Now, he’s spilling the beans in a new tell-all book called I Had The Right To Remain Silent... But I Didn’t Have The Ability (Dutton), where he details his black and blue life of hard knocks on the road to success.

White says it wasn’t hard to write the book. In his words, “I just got drunk one night, sat down and started telling my story.”

He adds: “There’s a reason I’ve got the stories I do to tell onstage, I’ve done some pretty stupid s over the years and suffered because of it. But it’s honest.”

Some of White’s more ribald tales chronicle his many arrests for public drunkenness – the first of which came at age 17 – his penchant for pretty waitresses in comedy clubs, and his complete inability to keep his mouth shut when it’s good for his health – and safety.

“Hence,” says White, “the very revealing title.”
