WABASH – Two famous comedians are coming to the Honeywell Center.

The impish and sometimes shocking Ron White will return once again to the Honeywell Center at 7:30 p.m. April 5.

One week later, the zany and often bizarre Weird Al Yankovic with his “The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour” show, with special guest Emo Philips, will take the Ford Theater stage at 7:30 p.m. April 12.

Tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

White is best known as a funnyman from the “Blue Collar Comedy” phenomenon. An established star in his own right, White's talent has earned him two Grammy nominations, a Gold Record, three of the top rated one-hour TV specials in Comedy Central history, a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List, and CD and DVD sales of over 10 million units.

Sponsorship for the Ron White show is provided by Market Street Grill.

Tickets are: $125 (seats AAA-C), $69 (D-ZZ; AA-HH), $49 (JJ-MM) and $35 (NN-QQ). The show is for mature audiences.

Weird Al’s show will be a mix of original songs and parodies.

“For the first time in his storied career, the world’s foremost musical satirist and four-time Grammy-winner foregoes his usual high-octane, big-production show for an intimate evening of music. This is a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal with this legendary performer,” according to a news release from Honeywell.

Weird Al’s most recent album, “Mandatory Fun,” was the first comedy album in history to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.

In 2018 he will be awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Tickets are: $75 (AAA-C), $46 (D-ZZ) and $34 (balcony).

Tickets may be purchased online at www.honeywellcenter.org or by calling the Honeywell Foundation Box Office at 260-563-1102.
