Although the self-styled comic enjoys expressing his opinions on world affairs, he has a strong distaste for topical comedians, preferring a more personal touch in his performances. “If you’re going to get your comedy from television, you’re not going to be doing it at the same level that I do it,” White explains. “It’s going to be similar to everyone else. I pull from my own life, so it has an original feel. Their stuff feels clunky and boring; they have structure writers who can sit around and do that shit all day. But not me. I’d rather smoke pot, watch cartoons and play some golf.”
White will be working tonight, though, with shows at 7:30 and 10 p.m. at the Buell Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Tickets are $46.75 to $56.75; for more information, visit denvercenter.org.
