He enlisted in the military at the age of 17 and was on the auxiliary rescue and salvage vessel USS Conserver towards the end of the Vietnam War. He always aspired to be a comedian. For a brief period he lived in Mexico, where he bought a pottery factory, and then returned to the United States to do comedy.
White traveled from January 2000 to March 2003 as part of the Blue-Collar Comedy Tour with fellow comedians Bill Engvall, Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworth. The show sold out in more than 85 cities across the United States and grossed $15 million.

He has also appeared in shows such as ‘Sex and City 2’, ‘Kath & Kim’, ‘Reno 911!’, ’12 Miles of Bad Road’ and ‘Horrible Bosses’.

In 2009, the stand-up show ‘Behavior Problems’ was released on DVD. White and Michael Blakey formed the Organica Music Group (OMG), a label that nurtures musicians and comedians. His bizarre announcement came in November 2015 when he said he would run for president of the United States as an independent candidate in 2016. That same year, White appeared in the fictional Staton-House Band Showtimes series ‘Roadies’.
