It was over a decade ago that Bill Engvall first became famous for his “Here’s Your Sign,” standup routine, and though that phrase helped launch into pop culture, it still can't compare with the fame that came from being part of the fab four known as The Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Then, after dabbling in film with Larry the Cable guy in Delta Farce, Bill returned to TV in his very own TBS sitcom, "The Bill Engvall Show".
