Bill Engvall coming to Honeywell Center

Posted: Friday, March 9, 2012

Comedian Bill Engvall, one of the founding members of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, will give two performances at the Honeywell Center in Wabash on Saturday, March 17 at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.  Sponsorship for this event is provided by Ceres Midland.

What began as a shot in the dark at a Texas nightclub quickly launched Bill Engvall to comedic superstardom when his attempt at standup comedy turned into a successful venture.  Then in 1996, Engvall released his first album, Here’s Your Sign, featuring the hit title track that spent 15 straight weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

In January 2000, along with comedians Ron White, Larry the Cable Guy, and Jeff Foxworthy, Engvall set out with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour for a successful six-year run that launched a 2003 movie, a TV show, and two more spin-off tours with a similar format.

Tickets for this show are $27, $37, $47 and $75, and may be purchased at the box office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, by calling (260) 563-1102 or visiting www.honeywellcenter.org.
