The comedian, best known for signs and “Blue Collar TV,” is a busy man right about now. Not only is he planning on a fairly busy tour schedule through the end of the year, he’s competing on Season 17 of “Dancing With the Stars,” partnered with new dance pro Emma Slater.
Bill Engvall is a very popular comedian because of his ability to connect with his audience. He uses the humor of everyday life in his routines because, after all, isn’t life the funniest thing?
Bill shares that ability, to use the funny situations of everyday life, with his “Blue Collar TV” co-stars Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy. When “Blue Collar TV” premiered on July 29, 2004, 5.4 million people tuned in. When Bill starred in “Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie” on Comedy Central, it became the most watched movie in that time slot in the channel’s history.
