Bill Engvall, a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with other comedy notables such as Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Ron White, is coming to Fairfield Theatre Company on Sunday, August 5th.

Known for his take on “redneck” humor, Engvall believes stupid people should have a sign. That way, the rest of us know better than to ask them for any pertinent information. Not familiar with his “Here’s Your Sign” routine? Here’s a little taste:

Flying a kite with his son, a passerby says, “Y’all flyin’ a kite?” He replies, “Nope, fishin’ for birds! Here’s your sign.”

The group’s first of six Blue Collar Comedy Tours launched in 2000. The tours were so popular that they spawned into movies, a satellite radio show, and a television show, Blue Collar TV.

The San-Antonio Express News says, “Bill Engvall worked the circular stage at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo on Monday night like everyone's favorite uncle, sharing humorous observations worthy of a backyard barbeque.”

“I guess if I had to pick a style I would say that I am more of a storyteller,” Engvall reflects. "I like to take the people on a journey that winds through life's stages - getting married, having kids, raising them and watching them go off to college and stuff like that. It's a journey that is relatable to a lot of people.  I have never been a fringe kind of comic. It's always been right down the middle of the road for me, and clean.”

Doors open at 7:00 p.m. for the 7:30 showing at The Klein Theater located at 910 Fairfield Avenue in Bridgeport. Tickets start as low as $55.

Can’t make this show? Here’s what’s coming up at FTC: Pure Prairie League on Saturday, July 28th; Tom Rush on Sunday, July 29th; Alexz Johnson on Monday, July 30th; and March Fourth Marching Band on Wednesday, August 1st.

About This Blog

Fairfield is a quaint little shore town tucked along the Gold Coast of the Long Island Sound. In 2006, Money Magazine rated the town as the ninth best place to live in the United States and the best place to live in the Northeast. We are a thriving community of active residents who walk, bike, hike, and run. And for our canine friends, it's a dog's life at the beaches and the hiking trails at Lake Mohegan. It is a great place for families and, with two major universities, it is a great place for students both young and old. With two epicenters of commerce on Post Road and Black Rock Turnpike, there is a range of shopping opportunities from major chains to Mom and Pop shops. Looking for a fun night out? Park your car in the center of town and the world is your oyster! See a concert at the Fairfield Theatre Company. Catch a movie at the Community Theater. Grab a bite to eat or a quick drink at any of the amazing restaurants peppered along the main drag. This blog celebrates all the things that are happening around town. Stop by and come see what all the fuss is about.
