“[After drunkenly getting his ear pierced] I go ‘it wasn’t my fault, it was Captain Morgan!’ and [my wife] goes ‘Oh, like when Jose Cuervo made you ride the floor buffer?’ and I said, ‘Exactly!’” This comedian/actor has induced audience laughter through standup, in television and on the big screen for years. Early in his career, Bill Engvall moved to L.A., where he’d work with Rosie O’Donnell and appear on The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. His first solo album, Here’s Your Sign, was released in May of 1996 and stayed in the #1 slot on Billboard’s Comedy Chart for 15 weeks. His second, Dorkfish, in 1998, was certified gold, selling 500,000 copies, and also clinching a #1 position on Billboard’s Comedy Chart, pulling ahead of Jerry Seinfeld’s album. 15° Off Cool in 2007 and Aged and Confused in 2009 would also find themselves debuting at #1. Along with sidekicks Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Ron White, Bill Engvall was a hilarious contributor to the Blue Collar Comedy tour, which sold more than 9 million units. Engvall has hosted a number of TV shows including Country Fried Videos and Mobile Home Disasters, for CMT. For three seasons, he starred in and executive produced his own self-titled TBS series. Bill Engvall has even tested out his comedy in the written form, including a 2007 autobiography: Bill Engvall – Just A Guy. On Saturday, Feb. 21, he will be at 7 Clans First Council Casino, 12875 N. Highway 77, Newkirk, on his Here’s Your Sign tour. Enjoy two opportunities to see him in one night; shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. For more information, visit www.firstcouncilcasinohotel.com.
