Ron White

If you can’t tell by his accent that Blue Collar Comedy Tour star Ron White is from Texas, just listen to a few of his jokes: “If you come to Texas and kill somebody, we will kill you back. There’s a bill in the legislature right now that says if there are three witnesses who saw you commit a heinous crime and you get convicted, you don’t sit on death row for 15 years, you go straight to the front of the line. Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty; in Texas we’re putting in an express lane.” See White’s killer comedy at 7:30 p.m. Friday, 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday. Verizon Wireless Theater, 520 Texas. For information, call 713-629-3700 or visit www.livenation.com. $44.75.
Fri., Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 22, 7:30 & 10:30 p.m., 2008
