Thus two-hour special was filmed live at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas.
Ron White is a strange guy. He has been a comic for about thirty years, but really came to prominence as part of the Redneck Comedy movement. Arguably, he was the most successful of the bunch. (Although Larry the Cable Guy has done exceptionally well for such a one-note comic.) What bothers me about White is that he is clearly brilliant with his observations and occasional plays on words. But he has an addiction to raunchy material. And that is too bad, because even though "blue humor" is funny, it really limits the reputation of a comic. George Carlin, the greatest modern comic, had a filthy mouth, but he was never raunchy.
