*Billy Gardell, the star of CBS’ hit comedy "Mike & Molly," has appeared in dozens of television series, including "Yes, Dear," "My Name Is Earl," "The King of Queens" and "Desperate Housewives." But his first love (apart from his Steelers) has always been stand-up comedy where his disarming no nonsense approach to life continues to sell out comedy clubs and theaters nationwide. Now Billy returns home to Pittsburgh, where all the funny began for him, in a one-hour live event that celebrates working-class America (Product Description).
ON CHILDHOOD: “Kids today get to do whatever they want. My Dad’s answer for everywhere you ever wanted to go was ‘they’re closed.’”
ON MARRIAGE: “After 10 years of marriage, dinner and a movie don’t cut it. After 10 years, you gotta say stuff like ‘Who wants new floors?’”
ON HALFTIME: “I’m 40. I’m at halftime in my life, and I played a sloppy first half. You know you’re getting old when you hurt yourself sleeping.”
