Bill Engvall Headlines Mari Showroom At Paragon Casino Resort
Posted August 2012
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. The comic best known for handing out imaginary signs for stupidity will delight audiences with his own brand of humor.
A native of Galveston, Texas, Bill moved to Dallas and worked 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, he decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue television opportunities.
Along with his Blue Collar movies, Bill also has two solo specials which aired on Comedy Central. “15° Off Cool” aired on March 25, 2007 and was one of the highest rated special of the year. Prior to that, “Here’s Your Sign, Live,” aired on Comedy Central on August 1, 2004 and premiered to 3.6 million total viewers. The DVD of that special has been certified multi-platinum.
Bill is also a platinum recording artist. His first album, “Here’s Your Sign” (Warner Bros. May ‘96), 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.
