Bill Engvall and Whoopi Goldberg Kick Off 2011 Entertainment Schedule at Treasure Island March 3
January 25, 2011 by VegasNews.com
Whoopi Goldberg, who began her career at the age of eight, will make her return to Treasure Island in March with a unique style of comedy.
She made her on-stage career debut on Broadway in a self-titled show. During the run, Goldberg grabbed the attention of Steven Spielberg who cast her in “The Color Purple,” her first big screen role. She has starred in many other films including “Ghost,” which earned her an Academy Award. Goldberg has also appeared in a variety of television programs and has even hosted the Academy Awards. She currently serves as moderator of “The View” and recently made guest appearances in the musical “Sister Act,” a stage show she also produces. Goldberg stays true to her stand-up roots and uses her celebrity to help good causes, including multiple appearances on “Comic Relief,” a series of televised benefits for America’s homeless.
What began as a shot in the dark at a Texas nightclub quickly launched funnyman Bill Engvall to comedic superstardom. The Galveston native, who returns to Treasure Island in both March and April, originally aspired to be a teacher when he discovered his gift for making people laugh. Bill Engvall starred in and served as executive producer for “The Bill Engvall Show” on TBS. He also hosted one of the top-rated shows on CMT, “Country Fried Home Videos” and starred in “Bait Shop” alongside Billy Ray Cyrus. The movie, which made its debut on USA Network, is now available on DVD. Engvall has written several books including his autobiography, “Bill Engvall – Just A Guy.”
