I Had the Right to Remain Silent But I Didn t Have the Ability Following Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour to the page Ron White affectionately known as Tater Salad delivers the laughs in his distinctive and beloved down hom
This book made me laugh I had already heard most of the comedic bits which helped put the book completely in his tone of voice but the background stories were really interesting I knew that he had a dependence on Scotch, but I didn t know how much it hindered his career Great book I like him now than before I read it, and I guess that that is all you can ask of a book about someone s life.
If you re familiar with Ron Tater Salad White, you know what to expect from parts of this book If you re not, I really do recommend his stand up Ron is a very entertaining performer, probably best known as part of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Jeff Foxworthy who he credits with making his career and being a great friend , Bill Engvall, and Larry the Cable Guy The book is a mixture of a few different elements There are bits from his stand up routines, which fans will recognize Many of these bi [...]
Not a classic or literary gold by any means, if You ve seen the comedy hours you ve already heard over half the material in here This is still a likeable, honest autobiography If you like the man read the book.
is there anyway to make distinctions with the rating systemi am new to this game for instance, when i m sitting on the john and reading this s definitely a six when i m just sitting in my round black sort of basket reading chair, it s like a 5 and a half it s somewhat hard to explain.
72% of this book was his stand up routine Yes, I actually counted the pages Out of that 72%, half of it was cartoon illustrations of the stories that did not add anything to the book The book would be shorter by almost half without the pictures The stand up portion of the book will fall flat if you have never watched his stand up routine live, but on the other hand if you have seen him perform it then you have already heard it all anyway There were maybe 4 pages of material that I don t remember [...]
This book is four of Ron White s stage acts put down on paper, with a couple of background chapters on his real life.The stage act material goes to prove the old saying about comedy It s not what you say, but how you say it When Ron does these on stage they are very funny, even if you have heard them before On paper they just don t work.The real life chapters were interesting but point towards the idea that Ron is mostly a big jackass off stage From what is written in this book he is probably no [...]
I watched some Comedy central blue collar thing the DVD and Ron White was my favorite among them, with his debaucher attitude Years later, I ve also heard his recent WTF interview I wasn t sure about the putting his act on writing part of the book, but I saw it s alternated with some biographic chapters, and those convinced me to read the book Liked it The life events he maybe skimmed through on that podcast were dwelt deeper in the short bio part.
Do you like Ron White Have you watched Blue Collar Comedy Tour or one of his other comedy specials on HBO If so, there s not much point in reading this This is mostly his stand up acts interspersed with some biographical material The stand up is lifted almost verbatim Like those movie tie in books that are just the script in novel form It was not bad I like Ron White but I guess I was expecting .
This was a funny book to read while sitting on the beach I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times I did feel like much of it was straight from the standup shows I d seen and I found I enjoyed the behind the scenes stories and wished for a bit of that By the end of the book it was a stretch for information.
It was a quick read, nothing deep here folks This is the type of book I woul dhave loved in school when you are forced to read Big margins and every over page is an ink drawing illustration I really like his standup so I enjoyed the book He talks very highly of Jeff Foxworthy who comes across as a great friend and mentor.
I read this book on my dad s recommendation I like Ron White, and have seen him on tv often His book is taken straight from his stand up act The act is much better The words are flat and almost stupid at times, the act is hilarious all the way through I probably won t read any books by him.
Some of this is word for word from his standup actd I can hear his voice in my head, so it worked well I m not sure how it would come across to someone unfamiliar with his act probably reads a lot angrier than it s delivered I enjoyed the biographical info, which was new to me.Have to say, I don t much care for the illustrations.
A lot of this book made me laugh But a lot of it is transcripts of routines that are even funnier on video If I could do it over, I d invest in the video and live without the relatively little new material that fills in between the routines.
If you are a fan of Ron then you will like this book It includes many of his familuar skits, but the best part is the behind the scenes insight into how he became a comedian and the exploits along the way It is an easy read that is worthwhile, if nothing else during bathroom time
Strictly for fans Consists mostly of print versions of White s standup routines The remainder is backstory about his life which apparently has been a tough one although his problems are mostly self made.
It is an entertaining book Drunken stories with bad ending are humorous Others people misfortune makes me laugh, like when someone trips If you have ever laughed when someone tripped, you will like this book.
Hilarious LOL funny Yes, Ron does talk about how he became a comedian but he told it in Ron White fashion so you will find yourself laughing but then he goes into some of his comedywell, if you have a weak bladder you might want to put on a Depends before reading Just sayin.
I am a huge fan of Ron White so I knew 90% of the book already It was interesting learning a little about his personal stuff I would recommend it if you haven t heard his act but you are a fan of the blue collar comedy stuff.
Complete waste of part of an afternoon Surprise It reads like a crasser version of the anecdotes that follow articles in Reader s Digest I m actually kind of embarrassed to put it on my list It was that bad.
in find ron white to be really funny dan read this todaypl in a dayd so i m now reading it there s lots of picturesis was a pretty funny book if you like ron white, you d probably like this book, even though it does just rehash a lot of his stand up material.
I adore Ron White I figured this would be a good book to have in our library It s a mix of both his stand up routines and newer material well, new to me.It s a perfect bathroom book The sections are relatively short, perfect for use in the bathroom.
About half of the book is taken right out of his standup routines, so that takes some points offe other half are some stories about how he got started in standup and his life, interesting stuffere is no real comedy craft discussion on this book.
I think Ron can be pretty funny so I found this booking amusing It was a quick easy read and a welcome change from the norm.
Mostly bits from his regular comedy routine but a quick fluffy read that requires very little attention.
Too rude to my taste of humor For a stand up comedian s book, Seinfeld s book is waaaay much better.
This book is just brutal I wouldn t advocate burning books, but if I did this would be the first one one the pile.
Some wonderfully amusing stories from a very interesting man Part of Foxworthy s Blue Comedy Tour.
Good mix of comedy and biography.
not great literature but entertaining
