A successful comedian from the state of Texas, Bill Engvall is best known for his "here's your sign" jokes, in which he states that people who ask stupid questions should be given signs so that you know they're stupid. Of course, he has a snappy rejoinder to the stupid questions asked of him.

-->And I started thinking about what would be awesome for Bill Engvall? What would leave me in awe and wonder? And it would have to be if I left this stage tonight and went back to my hotel room. And ShaniaTwain met me at my door, wearing nothing but a [[PrettyInMink fur coat]], holding a note from my wife that said "have a good time." ''That'' would be awesome!\\

Added DiffLines:

* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: As he had done previously with Creator/JeffFoxworthy, record producer Scott Rouse sampled some of Engvall's standup bits into original songs with a chorus sung by a session vocalist or famous country artist. The most successful was "Here's Your Sign (Get the Picture)", which took some "here's your sign" jokes from the first album and set them to music with a chorus sung by Travis Tritt. Later albums got a little more adventrous, with tracks such as "I'm a Cheap Drunk" that actually feature Engvall talk-singing original material.

** Similarly, in one of the shows, Bill tells one of Foxworthy's "You might be a redneck..." jokes. Specifically, "If you've ever opened a beer at a funeral, you might be a redneck." When someone asks if that actually happened, he claimed his Uncle Jack did it. However, he later said that his Uncle Jack told him to take it back because [[ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne it wasn't at the funeral, it was at the benediction.]]

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: The premise of a skit on ''Now That's Awesome!'' is about the proper use of the word "awesome" under its original meaning of leaving someone in awe and wonder.

He had his own sitcom, ''TheBillEngvallShow'', which aired on TBS for three seasons. The show co-starred Nancy Travis and JenniferLawrence.

Also like Foxworthy, Engvall has added game show host to résumé: he took over as the host of {{GSN}}'s ''Series/{{Lingo}}'' on June 6, 2011.

-->We could walk into a Chinese restaurant right here in Chicago. And the waiter could have been born here, raised here, went to college here, he has never left the city limits. I'm the idiot that walks in that restaurant and goes [in exaggerated Chinese] "Uh, yes. I'll have fried rice. Egg roll..." And you can see him go "I am so going to spit in your food, I swear to God." And it drives my daughter crazy. 'Cause she goes "why do you do that? That is so insulting to them!"

* ButtMonkey: Bill's wife, Gail, is the butt of many of his jokes almost as much as... well as Bill himself.

* AfraidOfNeedles: In one sketch, he recounts the time he went in for an acupuncture session to see if it would help him stop smoking. His first question to the acupuncturist was "Will it hurt?" Just as she tells him no, he hears a man in another room yelling in pain, an she says that the other man is "a big baby".
