Mike & Molly's Billy Gardell Talks Sex With Molly, Smoking Weed, and Cuban Sandwiches

Billy Gardell is a funny fat guy from Pittsburgh, and the star of Mike and Molly, one of TV's most popular shows in which he plays a cop who meets his future wife at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting.

You might also know him from bit roles on King of Queens, Judging Amy, and My Name Is Earl. But before his TV success, Gardell was grinding across the stages of America as a touring standup comic.

And he still is. You can check him out live on April 27th at the Hard Rock Live in Hollywood. But don't expect to see the character "Mike" on stage. We talked to Gardell about sex, getting high, and using bad words.
