Mike and Molly’s Billy Gardell will leave you laughing in JAX

Jacksonville Florida is THE place to be entertained.  Billy Gardell, star of the CBS hit television series Mike & Molly, will be bringing his stand-up comedy to the Thrasher-Horne Center in Orange Park after the Thanksgiving holidays.  Tickets are available now.
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.
