Billy Gardell stars in the CBS Hit television series, MIKE& MOLLY as Officer Mike Biggs. MIKE & MOLLY garners approximately 13 million viewers every week. In addition, he will be hosting the new syndicated "Monopoly Millionaires' Club", which premiers in 2015.
Before Mike and Molly, Gardell co-starred in the critically acclaimed television series “Lucky.” His other television credits include “Yes Dear” and “Judging Amy,” on the Network, “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”, plays Umpire Haze in the baseball feature, “Undrafted” and appears in the upcoming Clint Eastwood directed film, “Jersey Boys.”
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, "Billy Gardell: Halftime," premiered on Comedy Central and "Billy Gardell Presents Road Dogs" premiered on Showtime. In addition he makes regular appearances on "NFL Today" on CBS Sports.
A native of Pittsburgh who currently lives in Los Angeles, Gardell loves Steeler football, stand-up comedy and his wife Patty, and son Will.
Danny Bevins has been called many things: juvenile delinquent, soldier, flight attendant, patient, husband and lately "disturbingly hilarious". Though the term that best describes him is SMARTASS. His mouth has gotten him arrested, fined and fired from every job he's ever had, but for the last ten years it's propelled him to tour the world and perform on some of the most prestigious stages in comedy. The son of a Jesus freak and a Green Beret, Bevins straddles the line between temptation and authority. He's loud, audacious, opinionated, cocky, animated, charming, irreverent, sarcastic, facetious, ridiculous and dangerous. He is an AMERICAN SMARTASS! Credits include: Winner of the 2000 San Francisco International Comedy Competition Comedy Central's Premium Blend Paramount's The World Stands Up Producer and Star of the comedy documentary-Comics on Duty: We Love You, Mrs. Bevins Twice a Featured Comedian at the HBO US Arts Comedy Festival in Aspen, Co Featured Comedian on The Jameson Comedy Tour Comedy Album - Danny Bevins A Different Kind of Bad !
