    My two favorites were Engvall and White, with respect for Foxworthy, but might need to warm up to him.

    But I don't know if it continued to get more obscure as time went on. That was the reaction that many had to him throughout his career as well.

    That's probably because, unlike must stand-ups, White has a bunch of writers who feed him material.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Most stand-ups have writers. I think Carlin may have been the exception. Paul Mooney wrote for Richard Pryor.

    It really doesn't matter who he is popular with. He is still popular.

    Because you don't approve of his audience you feel this makes him less popular?

    Astounding!

    He is less popular. His TV show was cancelled. He was axed from MNF (where he was truly awful) and he has the 33rd ranked talk radio show.

    Ron White's genius may well be his delivery.

    The only thing astounding is people like you trying to suggest he's funny. He's just not. He's popular with Fox sheeple. Despite what many here would like you to believe, that isn't all that many people in the big picture.

    I neither said nor suggested he's funny. Quit the squirm. I said he was popular, and there is no doubt of that.

    Well he appears regularly on O'Reilly, has his own three hour daily radio program, sells books and albums, concerts, appears in commercials and movies and at least you've heard enough about him so that you have an opinion. Certainly he's popular.
