Funny Ha Ha 

Seems you can't swing a remote control without hitting one of the Blue Collar Comedy specials that air on Comedy Central. You've got Jeff Foxworthy and his "You might be a redneck" jokes, Larry the Cable Guy's "Get 'er done" catchphrase, and Bill Engvall's "Here's your sign" routine. And then there's the slightly sloppy bon vivant Ron White (pictured), who brings his "Drunk in Public" tour to Sam's Town Casino Saturday and Sunday.

White, who performs holding a cigar and a glass of whiskey, is more a storyteller than a joke teller. Or, better yet, make that a tattletale who tells on himself. In one bit, he relates being kicked out of a bar and then charged by police for public intoxication -- a charge he finds unfair since he wanted to be drunk in the bar, not in public. "I had the right to remain silent," he says. "But I did not have the ability."

Ron White, 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday, March 11th, and 7 and 10 p.m. Sunday, March 12th, at Sam's Town Casino, $42.75
