Before Bill Engvall appears at the Collins Center for the Arts this Friday, he took a few minutes to chat with me about humor, Dancing With the Stars, and acting in a horror movie.

I was a huge fan of Bill's before meeting him in Houlton several years ago. But spending a little time with him cemented my admiration. He's exactly what you'd expect - a super-nice, down-to-earth guy who talks about family while cracking jokes about things going on around him.  Our conversation started out with me telling him the story of our first meeting. He said he remembers but, whether he really does or he was just being polite, it's a day I'll never forget.

I have some highlights from the interview here, including who he considers his favorite comedian, what it was like doing 'Dancing With the Stars,' and his latest role in a horror movie. And don't miss the huge mistake he made while texting!

Bill Engvall is appearing this Friday night, February 24th, at the Maine Center for the Arts in Orono. You can still get tickets online. And be listening this week for your chance to win tickets on Q-106.5!

Just in case you're not familiar with Engvall's humor, check out this video about Cindy's Steakhouse. Hilarious!
