Welch, Minn. (November 26, 2018) Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling recording artist and one of the top comedians in the country Bill Engvall will be at Treasure Island Resort & Casino on April 27.
A native of Galveston, Texas, Bill moved to Dallas and worked as a disc jockey with plans of becoming a teacher. While in a nightclub one evening, he tried his hand at stand-up comedy and found that making people laugh was truly his forte.
Bill, along with his comedian counterparts Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Ron White, were part of the enormously successful Blue Collar Comedy Tour concert films. These concert films have sold over 9 million units and are some of the most watched movies and specials in Comedy Central history. The soundtrack for Blue Collar Comedy Tour, One For The Road was also nominated for a Grammy Award.
As the winner of the 1992 American comedy Award for “Best Male Stand-up Comedian” Bill can make you laugh; listening to his albums, reading his books, watching his many movies or especially seeing him at The Island in person!
