White's All-New Special Kicks-Off CMT's CAN'T STOP LAUGHING WEEK

NASHVILLE - March 13, 2014 - Comedian Ron White returns to the Mirage Hotel and Casino stage in Las Vegas for his fourth-annual COMEDY SALUTE TO THE TROOPS 2014, premiering Sunday, March 23 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. Joined by fellow comedians Kathleen Madigan, Josh Blue, Roy Wood, Jr., Gabriel Iglesias and Geechy Guy, the 90-minute show will kick-off CMT's CAN'T STOP LAUGHING WEEK.

Sin City serves as the perfect backdrop for this quirky group of comedians, as no subject is off-limits. Headlining this year's diverse comedic lineup, White questions why the city has not legalized marijuana yet, and touches on his run-ins with the law and his secret to monogamy, all with his signature cigar and glass of scotch in hand.

The mission of White's COMEDY SALUTE TO THE TROOPS is to raise funds for the Armed Forces Foundation and create awareness for PTSD. Included in the special are Retired USMC Gunnery Sergeant Samuel Deeds and his wife, as they discuss Deeds' struggle with PTSD after returning home to his family from serving. The couple encourages awareness of this common battle and urges those affected to seek help from medical professionals, with the assistance of the Armed Forces Foundation.

Ron White has been a passionate supporter of the US military troops for more than 20 years, donating his time and resources. White first rose to fame as the cigar-smoking, scotch-drinking funnyman from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour phenomenon, but now as a chart-topping Grammy-nominated comedian and a feature film actor, he has established himself as a star in his own right. All four of his comedy albums charted #1 on the BillboardTM Comedy Charts. He has sold over 14 million albums (solo and with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour), been nominated for three Grammys, and over the past nine years has been one of the top three grossing stand-up comedians on tour in America. As an actor, White has had supporting roles in films including "Horrible Bosses" and "Sex and the City 2." He is a co-Executive Producer of "Bridegroom," a Linda Bloodworth -Thomason documentary, which debuted at the 2013 NYC Tribeca Film Festival and won the Audience Award.
