MILWAUKEE-You might not recognize him out of his police uniform, but actor/comedian Billy Gardell was "yukking it up" at the CBS 58 studios Friday.
While his hit situation comedy "Mike and Molly" takes place in Chicago, Milwaukee holds special meaning for the longtime stand up comedian.
"I was working a gig here when I found out we got picked up. I'm familiar with Milwaukee, I've been coming here for 20 years," Gardell said, "it's better being the guy playing the casino packed with fans than the one they grabbed off the floor for an hour."
Gardell is playing Friday and Saturday night at Potowatomi Bingo Casino.
