Bill Engvall is a Texas-born comedian who was made famous for his "here's your sign" bit, a sarcastic ode to stupidity that boosted his career in the 1990s after years of struggling to find a mainstream audience. Engvall's comedic sensibilities often stem from tales of the American South, including riffs on hunting, fishing and drinking beer. His success has led to the creation of The Bill Engvall Show on TBS, and his inclusion in the highly popular Blue Collar Comedy Tour.
Australian comedian Jim Jefferies gained notoriety when, while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store, someone from the audience jumped on stage and punched him. Known for his provocative comedy, Jefferies owns his own brand of humor centered on atheism, which is the theme of his HBO special I Swear to God.
