Engvall started out as a Dallas disc jockey with dreams of becoming a teacher. He tried stand-up comedy at a nightclub one night and he realized he had discovered he had a gift for making people laugh. He made the move to Los Angeles and he went on to star in his own Showtime stand-up special A Pair of Jokers. He made appearances on A&E's Evening at the Improv, as well as The Tonight Show and The Late Show with David Letterman. Engvall has his own sitcom from 2007-2009 and one of his children was played by Kentucky native and future Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence.
