My Two Cents: Can you be a redneck and a liberal?
Welcome to the 18th episode of “My Two Cents” with comedian Bill Engvall, the show designed to make you laugh and think! Scroll to the bottom to listen to this week’s episode.
Guest: Comedian Trae Crowder
In this episode, Bill begins by professing his love for Halloween, describing all the stops he pulled out when his kids were young to ensure his house was the scariest on the block for trick-or-treaters — including “the puker,” as he used to call it. “There are two places I shopped,” Bill summed it up. “Cabela’s and the Halloween store.”
Bill is also joined by comedian Trae Crowder, who, much like the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, has pulled together a group of Southern comedians. But unlike Blue Collar, Trae and his buddies Corey Ryan Forrester and Drew Morgan have taken a staunch political stance, dubbing both their book and their current tour The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin’ Dixie Outta the Dark. Bill and Trae chat about whether one can be a redneck and a liberal, with one anecdote coming from Bill’s day with Blue Collar. It features a guy who tried to get Bill to come over to his place after a show by listing all the drugs he had in his cupboard. When Bill responded “Oh my God,” the gentleman replied, “Don’t take the Lord’s name in vain!”
