Aged and Confused, the new (2009) Bill Engvall CD will please all of his fans. I Aged and Confused, the Blue Collar Comedy comic goes back to the kind of clean, generally family friendly stand-up comedy that first brought him to fame and fortune and manages to keep away from the more acerbic stuff from a few years ago.
Most of the material on this stand-up comedy CD is autobiographical stories about Bill Engvall and the missus. The Engvall kids, now grown, do not show up aside from a couple of references to their having moved out.
The centerpiece of Aged and Confused is a long form stand-up bit about a family vacation. This involves zip lining through the jungle, flying through turbulence, and more sharks. This is a really solid bit that will please all of Engvall’s fans.
Aged and Confused does open differently with a few newspaper stories about strange people and events. This is not Engvall’s forte and the two routines give this stand-up comedy CD a bit of a false start.
Another very good routine on this CD is Birthday Suit which shows how badly things turn out when a guy follows advice written in a women’s magazine. This is clean stand-up but more adult oriented than the rest of the material here.
The show closes weak with a bit on colonoscopy, the airplane joke of aging comics. Nothing good ever comes from colonoscopy.
Overall, this is a very enjoyable, clean comedy CD that will please Bill Engvall and Blue Collar Comedy fans.
