REVIEW: Ron White “A Little Unprofessional”

A Little Unprofessional DVD cover photo

Ron “Tater Salad” White is back with a brand new special, and fans of the venerable, cigar and scotch soaked Southerner will not be disappointed. For almost ninety minutes, Tater Salad riffs on food, pop culture, Vegas, sex, Dr. Phil, and sex again in his signature blue collar drawl. Seriously, for a man that became famous touring on the family friendly Blue Collar comedy this special is hilariously filthy. While I would say, “A Little Unprofessional” isn’t going to bring any new Tater Salad fans to the table, it’s definitely a funny addition to his catalog. But also what do I know? “A Little Unprofessional” is nominated for a Grammy for Best Comedy Album, Tater Salad’s third nomination.

Dr. Brown

Dr. Brown is the absurd comedy character of Philip Burgers – a world-renowned clowning skills instructor and actor who trained with the infamous Philippe Gaullier, another of whose pupils, Sacha Baron Cohen, called him “the greatest living teacher of clown”.

His credits include Dr. Brown Because (2010) and Doctor Brown Becaves (2011). He was also awarded the Top Ten pick of the Fringe 2010, Malcolm Hardee Award for Most Original Comedy nomination 2010 & 2011, The Sunday Times’ Best Comedy Newcomer 2010, Total Theatre Award nominee 2011, BARRY award for Best Comedy Show 2012, Total Theatre Award for Innovation 2012, Foster’s Edinburgh Best Comedy Award 2012 and global sell-out runs everywhere.

Burgers’ act much of which is mimed, and much of which is highly uncomfortable and a tad repulsive, nonetheless makes for compelling viewing.

‘About as bonkers an hour of comedy as ever you would find – part Mr Bean, part Buster Keaton, all odd.’ Sunday Times ★★★★

After a spectacular run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012 and numerous international festivals, Doctor Brown presents his BARRY Award and Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award 2012 winning show Befrdfgth. His cult following spreads to Prague, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, New York and Toronto, Dubai, Hong Kong and London’s Soho Theatre to name a few; Dr Brown is fast becoming one of the most talked about alternative comedians on the international circuit.
