Well i think we finally got this blog thing worked out. (I hope) So I hope that you are enjoying the Bill Engvall Show we are about finished filming for this year.  It has been a blast, I also wanted to tell you that my new movie will be out this summer on the USA network.  It is called Bait Shop and it stars Billy Ray Cyrus and obviously me.  It is another funny family movie.  The DVD will be out on Labor Day in your favorite movie rental store.  I was deeply saddened with the passing of George Carlin, he was a huge influence on me.  He will be greatly missed, I still laugh whenever I hear the Hippy Dippy Weatherman.  Well I hope that the gas prices dont have you to down and that you will be able to come see me live.  Just check out the tour page and hopefully we can meet on the road.  Take care

The Passing of an icon

Hey gang,

You know every morning I usually wake up with a smile on my face and this moring was no different. That was until I turned on the news and saw that one of my heroes has passed away. George Carlin was to me one of the best comedians I had ever seen. His brash style of comedy always made me laugh. He was truly what I would call a thinking mans comic. I had the chance to meet him one time and it is a meeting that I shall never forget. I have been a fan every since the Hippy Dippy weatherman came out. Whether you agreed with him or not George was in every since of the word a comedian. He made you think, he made you laugh, and he made you question what is really right in the world. I for one will miss George, and you just know that right now he is making those in heaven laugh and feel just a little uncomfortable. Thanks George, its been an honor to have been in your audience.
