Bill Engvall, comedian extraordinaire, will perform at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner.
According to a press release from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, comedian Bill Engvall will be the headline performer at the 2015 SHOT Show State of the Industry Dinner.
The State of the Industry Dinner is on January 20, 2015, the first night of the SHOT (Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Engvall, co-star of “The Blue Collar Comedy Tour” alongside fellow outdoorsman Jeff Foxworthy, is an ideal performer for the annual gathering of the movers and shakers of the hunting and shooting worlds. He’s an avid hunter, target shooter, and all-around show biz good guy. Attendees of the State of the Industry Dinner have some laughing to look forward to, that’s for sure.

“We are extremely happy that Bill Engvall has agreed to perform at the SHOT Show’s State of the Industry Dinner,” said NSSF President Steve Sanetti in the release. “Bill has been at the SHOT Show before and proudly supports America’s hunting and recreational shooting traditions, so he knows that a full house will warmly welcome him.”
The news comes a month after Jay Leno cancelled his appearance at the same event, after receiving pressure from anti-gun groups.
