Funny but not Blue Collar Comedy Tour Quality

"Ron White is hilarious comedian. He gained notoriety on the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour" and was every bit as good as Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. Since I enjoyed that show and very much enjoyed his major label CD, I looked around for what else was available. There was not much but this one did come up on the search.
This is an earlier work. His timing is not as good and in his later work and his stories are not as funny but they are still very good. Some are also pretty dated. Unless you remember Olga Korbut and Nadia Comanech (?) as great gymnasts from the 70s and 80s Olympic games, some won't mean much.
His style is somewhat abrasive but the sarcasm is more directed towards himself than towards others. That doesn't stop him from launching a few zingers at others but a lot of it is self effacing.
If you like lowbrow, Southern style humor, you could do a lot worse than this one.
Ron White is awesome but this CD falls a little short

"Ron White has done some wonderful stuff on Blue Collar Comedy Tour and other CDs. Don't get this, get Drunk in Public or the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. It's a way better CD way funnier. Pick anonther CD."

"For those who've seen the Blue Collar movies, heard "Drunk In Public," or seen "They Call Me Tater Salad," there's little new here. It is interesting to see how White's delivery and on-stage persona have developed since 1990 (he admits both to smoking pot and some level of homophobia, both of which he now disavows), when this set was recorded.
However, this CD points up how little material White actually has. While the bits have clearly been polished with time and experience, White seems to have done very little writing during the length of his career. As a fan of White's I find this sad, given his level of talent."
