‘In Standup, You Gotta Keep Goin’ Man – You Can’t Stop’ – Ron White Talks Wichita Falls Show

Ron White will bring his outstanding brand of humor to Memorial Auditorium this Friday, August 8. Mr. White was kind enough to call me to chat about the upcoming show and more.

All proceeds from the show will go to benefit victims of the Fritch, Texas wildfire that destroyed more than 100 homes in the small panhandle town that just so happens to be White’s birthplace.

“It still has my childhood home, which is still there,” he said. “It’s on a dirt street. They have dirt streets to this day, so it’s very, very rural and it was devastating, so I wanted to do something to help.”

The show will feature White’s new Nutcracker routine. I asked him how he approaches writing new material.

“I replace a joke out of my show, I try to, every day.” he answered. “I try to write something funny enough to put in my show. I don’t always do it. In fact, I usually don’t do it because the show is really tight.”

We talked about the fact that he’s as popular as ever and I asked him if he has a lot of people tugging at him, trying to get him into acting.

“I think one of the things they don’t realize about me is that I didn’t get into stand-up to get into acting,” he asserted. “I got into stand-up to do stand-up and that’s what I love to do.”

Lucky for us White will be doing what he loves here in Wichita Falls this Friday and tickets and VIP packages are still available for the show. Get event and ticket details here.
