All the world's a stage: Bill Engvall

Join world-famous comedian Bill Engvall to learn how to prepare, course-correct, and connect with your audience when you’re onstage.

Guest Bio:

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 one of the busiest.

Although he currently resides in Park City, Utah with his wife, Engvall is a native of Galveston, Texas. Early on, he moved to Dallas and was working as a disc jockey with plans of becoming 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.

Bill has written several books, including You Don’t Have to Be Dumb to Be Stupid (1997) and Here’s Your Sign (2005). Most recently in 2007, Engvall penned his autobiography, Bill Engvall – Just A Guy: Notes From a Blue Collar Life.
