Ron White, funnyman and longtime supporter of the armed forces, returns to CMT to host an all-new comedy special in support of the troops. In addition to White, the show features comedians Kathleen Madigan, Jake Johannsen, John Pinette and Mike Wilmot as they salute those serving in the armed forces with a night full of laughs.
White kicks off the 90-minute special by giving his current thoughts on a variety of topics ranging from the apocalypse to hybrid cars and what he thinks about other men hitting on his wife. The special also includes footage from White’s visit with the troops stationed at Fort Benning, Ga. The benefit was filmed at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville with the proceeds of the show aiding the Armed Forces Foundation.
White is a huge supporter of the armed forces and has performed at military bases both in the U.S. and around the world. He has been a touring comedian since 1986 and gained national fame in 2000 when he joined the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Since then, he has toured solo, selling out venues across North America and has been ranked in the Top 5 in tour revenue for the past five years. White is a multi-Grammy nominated comedy artist, and all of his albums have been certified gold or platinum.
