Spectra, the providers of Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to the Owensboro Convention Center, announced today that Grammy-nominated blue-collar comedian, Bill Engvall, will be performing his new stand-up routine on Friday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m.
Most recently, Engvall was a contestant on season 17 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and as a fan favorite, he made it to the finals. Earlier this year, Engvall lent his voice to the animated comedy series Bounty Hunters, which aired on CMT. He previously starred in, and executive produced, the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.
Engvall was part of the enormously successful Blue Collar Comedy concert films, which sold over 9 million units and received a Grammy nomination. He also starred on the WB’s hit sketch comedy show Blue Collar TV and in several solo specials for Comedy Central. In 2012 he reunited with Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy on the Them Idiots Whirled Tour, which aired as a special on CMT.
Engvall’s first album, “Here’s Your Sign,” is certified platinum and held the #1 position on the Billboard Comedy Chart for 15 straight weeks. His second album, Dorkfish, also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Comedy Chart, as did his subsequent comedy albums. Engvall has written several books, including his 2007 autobiography Bill Engvall –Just A Guy. Bill recently filmed a new special entitled Just Sell Him For Parts.
