Gardell, star of CBS’s “Mike & Molly,” brings comedy tour to Beau Rivage Theatre

19 March 2019

BILOXI, Miss. – Emmy nominated actor and comedian Billy Gardell, who starred in the CBS hit television series, “Mike & Molly” as Officer Mike Biggs, takes the mic at Beau Rivage Theatre on Friday, April 5, at 8 p.m.

While “Mike & Molly” continues to air in syndication, Gardell currently has a recurring role on another CBS series, “Young Sheldon.”

In 2016 he received a daytime Emmy nomination as best gameshow host for “Monopoly Millionaires Club.”

Before “Mike & Molly,” Gardell co-starred in the critically acclaimed television series “Lucky.” His other television credits include “Yes Dear” and “Judging Amy” on CBS, “My Name is Earl,” “The Practice,” “Monk” and “Gary the Rat.”

He made his major motion picture debut alongside Anthony Quinn and Sylvester Stallone in “Avenging Angelo,” and had a memorable scene with Billy Bob Thornton in the Cohen Brother’s film “Bad Santa.” He also appeared in “You, Me & Dupree.”

As a standup, Gardell took the long road to Hollywood, stopping at every small town lounge, military base and comedy club along the way. His comedy act took him to Los Angeles where his dedication to acting, along with touring as a stand-up comedian, allowed him to grow consistently in both arenas. His stand-up show is a powerhouse. His grounded, down-to-earth point of view strikes a strong chord with American audiences. Stories about his rough childhood, wild adolescence and new family life are executed with the skill of a master craftsman.

As a standup comic, his comedy specials, "Halftime," premiered on Comedy Central and "Billy Gardell Presents Road Dogs," premiered on Showtime.

Tickets $19.95, $24.95, $29.95 and $39.95, plus tax and facility fee, and may be purchased by calling 888.566.7459 or visiting www.beaurivage.com
