There have been some pretty famous men in the past who have been lucky enough to get some pretty epic nicknames. "The Duke" (John Wayne), "Ol' Blue Eyes" (Frank Sinatra), "The Boss" (Bruce Springsteen), and of course the most infamous of them all, "Tater Salad." And to whom does the moniker belong? None other than Texas' own Ron White, a comedian whose stand-up is literally LOL-worthy. The man seems physically incapable of getting through a set without finishing off an entire bottle of Johnny Walker or smoking 45 cigarettes, always managing to do both and still be a comedian simultaneously, but that is probably what makes him so funny. For anyone interested in getting Ron's take on hunting ("It's cold, it's early, and I don't want to fucking go") or law enforcement ("I had the right to remain silent...but I didn't have the ability"), or lament the fact that you really cannot "fix stupid", you will have not only one, but two chances when Ron's tour stops in Fort Worth at the Will Rogers Auditorium, 1 Amon Carter Square, Saturday. He is slated to perform two shows, one at 7 p.m. and the other at 10 p.m. For more information and tickets, visit ticketmaster.com.
