Ron White made his name as part of the Blue Collar Comedy gang that also includes such lunkheads as Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. Except White's actually funny.

L.A. WEEKLY: Who do people say you look like?

WHITE: Nick Nolte and Gary Busey. We all use the same headshot.

You're looking really hip these days — who did your makeover?

What makeover? My hair is naturally striped. If you look at my wardrobe on Blue Collar One, and what I was wearing last night, you'll see they match.

What do you do all day when on tour?

Golf during the day and live rock & roll at night. Life ain't bad.

What's your favorite medication?

Klonopin. With a Johnnie Walker Blue chaser.

Do you give money to homeless people?

Not really anyone's business who I give money to, but yes, I do.

What is your definition of happiness? Are you happy now?

The absence of sad. I'm not sad now. I've got the Klonopin, remember?

Who would you like to play you in the story of your life?

Lisa Lampanelli.

What would cause you to quit comedy?

If people quit laughing after I say something.

What are your favorite things to do when in L.A.?

Leave for Santa Barbara.
