    Anyone seen his show? We enjoy him on TV and radio but have never seen him life. I'm sure at this late date we couldn't get tickets very close to the stage. I've never seen a show at the Mirage before. Would we still be able to see and hear him if we have to sit way in the back?

    Last night I called Mirage and got tickets 13 rows from the stage for the Sunday show.

    Saw him in Tunica and at Mirage. Always a gut buster show.

    Enjoy.

    I've saw his Show at the Mirage last year....I'm a fan too.
    the closer/centered you sit the better...
    He doesn't stay on the mic very well and his punch
    lines happen after the fact as he turns away from the
    mic...he mumbles.
    I was entertained, but didn't pick up on a lot of his gags
    because of his poor mic attack.
    The thing I didn't care for was....his wife.
    She was in a lot of his jokes the night I saw him, but he
    asks her out on stage toward the end of the Show to sing.
    I didn't buy a ticket to hear her sing...and she's not that good.
    Like I said, I was entertained just because I've enjoyed his stuff
    in the past, but won't see him again unless he's with JEFF and LARRY.

    I have heard that from others as well. My host had lined up seats for his show this Sunday, but then Carrot Top cancelled his show for tonight... so I had them do a bit of juggling - now seeing Ron on Saturday and Carrot Top on Sunday (if he doesn't cancel)!

    Gregrio - any chance that you've heard why Carrot Top cancelled a few shows?

    Well, ya can't blame me this time, I don't hit town til
    this Saturday for a fast 'n wild weekend.
    Scott usually doesn't cancel many Shows...
    Maybe he wanted to go see WICKED!?!

    Between Ron's and Scott's Shows, the laugh factor will
    be quite entertaining.
    When his wife comes on...ignore the singing and just try
    and focus on the jokes he told about her.
    If he cut her from the Show, he probably wouldn't get any...

    Saw Ron White last night. Aside from a 60 second appearance of his dogs, his wife did not appear in the show. But boy does he talk her up. Being the third wife, I am sure she stays VERY close to him to make sure she's also the last. Good show.

    Geechy Guy opened up for Ron. I had seen him a few years ago on a cruise where his show was a real flop - I actually felt sorry for him then! When I saw that's who was being introduced for the opener, I was readied myself! I don't know what happened (perhaps he sold his soul to the devil) but he was a riot!
