Visit the web site of comedian Bill Engvall and youll be greeted with a message proclaiming that youve come to the right place if youre looking for squeaky clean standup.
Theres no punch-line to that joke.
The former sitcom star and Blue Collar Comedy Tour participant prides himself on a clean-cut image that helps him connect with an audience that consists largely of rednecks and married couples. Taking the blue out of blue collar has produced mixed results in Engvalls career. While it landed him his own sitcom on TBS, the gig lasted just two seasons before being chopped from the airwaves.
