It’s the quality of sharing the humour in everyday situations that has made Bill Engvall one of the top comedians today. While working as a disc jockey in a nightclub one evening, Bill decided to try his hand at stand-up comedy and quickly found that making people laugh was truly his forte. He had a Showtime special, A Pair of Joker’s with Rosie O’Donnell, followed by hosting A&E’s Evening at the Improv as well as stand-up routines on both The Tonight Show and the Late Show with David Letterman.
A native of Texas, Bill has hosted numerous television shows including the game show LINGO for GSN, Country Fried Videos and Mobile Home Disasters for CMT. He starred in and executive produced his own self-titled sitcom for TBS, which ran for three seasons and was one of the stars of the sketch comedy show Blue Collar TV on the WB network. Bill also starred in the NBC series, The Jeff Foxworthy Show, where he played Jeff’s best friend. Bill was part of the enormously successful Blue Collar Comedy concert films; these are some of the most watched movies and special in Comedy Central history.
A star of the big screen as well, Bill has appeared in several films including Strawberry Wine, Bed and Breakfast, and Delta Farce. Bill has several solo specials which aired on Comedy Central including Aged and Confused, Live, 15° Off Cool, Here’s Your Sign.
