Ron White’s Fifth Annual Comedy Salute to the Troops Airs June 12 on CMT

Shane Torres, Gene Pompa, Rocky LaPorte, Kathleen Madigan, Finesse Mitchell Join Him in Vegas

Ron White has enlisted some of his funniest friends to help pay tribute to U.S. military personnel with a night of comedy on Comedy Salute to the Troops 2015, premiering June 12 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.

Taped earlier this year at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the 90-minute special features the scotch-drinking comic and fellow comedians Shane Torres, Gene Pompa, Rocky LaPorte, Kathleen Madigan and Finesse Mitchell as they raise funds for the Armed Forces Foundation, create awareness for PTSD and give back to the men and women who have served their country.

No topic is off limits in this fifth-annual special as White and his friends offer all-new takes on a variety of topics, including diet and exercise, the laziness of his French bulldogs and his personal thoughts on standard police sobriety tests.

To date, Ron White and his wife Margo Rey have raised more than $1 million dollars for the AFF. The foundation’s mission is to protect and promote the physical, mental and emotional wellness of military service members, veterans and their families.
