I caught the first ever Blue Collar Comedy Tour back in the early 00's. It was one of the best comedy shows I've ever seen! One of the four originals rolls into Grand Junction Sunday, August 28th, The Avalon Theatre downtown.

The Blue Collar Comedy Tour was the brainchild of Jeff Foxworthy. The tour featured four "good ole boys", Jeff, Larry The Cable Guy, Ron White, and Jeff's good friend Bill Engvall. Bill had a part of Jeff's TV show, "The Jeff Foxworthy Show" on NBC, and various other projects, but it was the four guys touring together, that elevated them all to super-stardom. The concert DVD's sold over 9 million copies and still one of the best-selling comedy DVDs of all time.

I was working in radio in Joplin MO at the time The Blue Collar Comedy Tour rolled through Tulsa OK. I got the chance to meet the guys and had seats right up front. I'm not sure if I ever laughed so hard in all my life. I had tears roll'n down my cheeks and will never forget the experience. Bill Engvall was not only a part of that fabulous foursome, he's an amazing talent in his own right. So take it from a guy who knows, don't miss the show!
