The TBS hit family comedy “The Bill Engvall Show” (No. 1 among households and people 25 to 54) is back this summer with all-new episodes. Comedian Bill Engvall (who has won over audiences with his hilarious stand-up show) brings his unique take on family and parenting to TBS for a sitcom the whole family will love.

Engvall stars as Bill Pearson: a family counselor, loving husband and father of three kids whose own family could use a little dose of counseling. Bill’s wife, Susan (played by Nancy Travis from “Becker” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”), tries to keep the clan in line.

Their three children (Lauren, Trent and Bryan) definitely know how to manipulate them. With a humorous perspective on family life, this comedy series shows the authentic yet playful side of parenting and portrays a father who’s the heart of the family.

A couple things

Since I’m in I.T.
Technical Situational Irony

and, of course…

Serious comments/statements being misheard by passers-by, who stop, and in a very shocked/confused look, ask the question “What (chuckle) did you just say?” =)

What makes me laugh

There are a lot of things that make me laugh. Physical comedy is always great. I will laugh out loud when someone acts silly or tells a really great joke. It’s important to laugh, so it’s good to do it as much as possible.

Television shows are what make me burst into laughter, especially well written comedy shows! I always look forward to watching The Office every Thursday night. Tim Meadows is one of the funniest comedians ever, he was even on an episode of The Office! I would love to be able to meet him and see a screening of this TBS comedy, that would make me burst into laughter :).
