Do you have a complete set of salad bowls that all say "Cool Whip" on the side? Has an episode of Walker, Texas Ranger "changed your life?" Do you keep "a fly swatter on the front seat of your car so you can reach your kids in the back seat of your car?" And, more to the point, are you itching to see Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie?

Before he became famous for his album Here's Your Sign, comedian Bill Engvall bombed big-time. It was 1980-something, and Engvall was living in Dallas and regularly performing at a comedy club there when he got a call from Star Search. They wanted him to perform on the show. "I thought, this is the break, this is my big break," Engvall said.
