The thing that makes any entertainer successful is the ability to connect with an audience. It's the quality of sharing the humor in everyday situations that has made Bill Engvall one of the top comedians today and among the busiest.
Bill starred in "Blue Collar Comedy Tour, The Movie," which premiered on Comedy Central and at that time was the most-watched movie in the channel's history. The soundtrack was released in June 2006 and was nominated for a Grammy Award.
Bill is a platinum recording artist. His first album, "Here's Your Sign," has been certified platinum and held the #1 position on the Billboard Comedy Chart for 15 straight weeks. It went on to peak at #5 on Billboard's Current Country Album Chart and reached the Top 50 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart.
Collaborating with musician Travis Tritt on a video also entitled "Here's Your Sign," Bill became a fixture on the play lists of CMT and TNN. The single of the same name became the most requested single on country radio. It was ranked #1 on Billboard's Country Singles Sales Chart for 10 weeks and reached the Top 30 on Billboard's Singles Sales Chart, which covers all genres of music. The "Here's Your Sign" single also achieved Gold status, not a common occurrence in the comedy market. In 1997, Engvall won the "Best Selling Comedy album" award at the annual NARM convention, outselling albums by Chris Rock and Adam Sandler.
Bill has also written several books, including his autobiography, Bill Engvall - Just a Guy," from St. Martin's Press in 2007. For more information, visit www.billengvall.com.
