Bill Engvall is just a regular guy from Galveston, Texas, and was working a job like most of us. He got the itch and decided to move to “Bid D” (Dallas) where the jobs were more diverse. He ended up working as a disc jockey with plans of becoming of a teacher. While 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. Soon after, amateur-night audiences at several local clubs and a brief stint in St. Louis convinced Ingvall to move to Los Angeles to pursue television opportunities. He found that he was able to connect with other regular people. Want proof? You can find his book and DVD at any WalMart in the country, but maybe not Target.
Engvall’s talent for sharing the humor in everyday situations has made him one of the top comedians today and among the busiest. He was a regular with The Blue Collar Comedy Tour and brings his special brand of sharp tongue and cutting wit to Pittsfield’s Colonial Theatre on Saturday, August 4 at 7:30pm and 9:30pm. It’s a double header sponsored by the Pittsfield Cooperative Bank.
