Grant Walters Grant Walters Comedy Preview: Billy Gardell

The veteran stand-up comedian and star of "Mike & Molly" and "Million Dollar Quartet" is celebrating thirty years on stage this weekend at the Columbus Funny Bone

Is that better?” The mobile gods were not smiling down on me when I interviewed Billy Gardell a few weeks ago as I flailed around our office building looking for a signal like an unhinged Muppet.
