Billy Gardell has hit the jackpot with Mike and Molly, but you cannot pull this guy off the road and away fromhis first love – doing stand up comedy. Get your tickets here for Saturday night at the EQC.

We started with the heavy questions, no pun intended, about the grief co-star Melissa McCarthy is getting from the press for being a big girl.  More on weight – Billy lost some  last year, but…

We talked about dream roles and his love of doing live comedy. His first stand-up gig was at an Orlando comedy club in 1987.

“I did really well for five minutes,” he recalls, “then terrible for two years straight.”

Billy mentioned on Craig Ferguson’s show that he’d quit drinking. We find out how it is being in those comedy clubs with the all those tipsy folks. And, Billy is from Pittsburg, and visits some pretty funny places there every year.
