Editorial Reviews

Billy Gardell, the star of CBS’ hit comedy "Mike & Molly," has appeared in dozens of television series, including "Yes, Dear," "My Name Is Earl," "The King of Queens" and "Desperate Housewives." But his first love (apart from his Steelers) has always been stand-up comedy where his disarming no nonsense approach to life continues to sell out comedy clubs and theaters nationwide. Now Billy returns home to Pittsburgh, where all the funny began for him, in a one-hour live event that celebrates working-class America.

ON CHILDHOOD: “Kids today get to do whatever they want. My Dad’s answer for everywhere you ever wanted to go was ‘they’re closed.’”

ON MARRIAGE: “After 10 years of marriage, dinner and a movie don’t cut it. After 10 years, you gotta say stuff like ‘Who wants new floors?’”

ON HALFTIME: “I’m 40. I’m at halftime in my life, and I played a sloppy first half. You know you’re getting old when you hurt yourself sleeping.”

    'Billy Gardell' Halftime is one of those rare stand up routines that maintains a certain level of hilarity throughout. Where many comedians seem to have high peaks combined with long drawn out bits used as filler in the middle of their acts, Gardell remains consistent and keeps this excellent set running on all cylinders. Another plus is that the comedian doesn't use profanity excessively, but don't think this is a family affair, the jokes are aimed at adults.

    If you have ever seen Billy do standup and enjoy his humor you will for sure enjoy "HALFTIME". If you have never seen Billy then you are in for an extra special treat. Billy is so down to earth, real and truthful with his comedy, both standup and with the many cast of charcacters he has played in the past. Mike and Molly for sure is the BEST. Check that out too, Monday nights, 9:30pm, ch 4. Billy also has done another hour special for Comedy Central in the past but it's not on DVD, Maybe you can find that on Comedy Central, very very funny. ENJOY and HAPPY LAUGHING!!!

    I watch a lot of comedians. There are as many different points of view as there are comics. Billy captures the normal American person and family. He is middle America. All Americans can relate to his stories of growing up, finding a wife, starting a family and dealing with relatives. Billy is you and me, but presents himself with such humor and openness that you laugh all the way through this DVD. I cannot recommend Halftime enough. Buy it.

    I saw this special when it was taped and let me tell you this guy is HILARIOUS. Everything that came out of his mouth had me laughing. He's totally relatable AND clean enough for the whole family to enjoy it. Definitely check this one out... I can't wait to get a copy on DVD!

    A Comedy Central special, "Halftime" is a fun time. Gardell has remarked that, among others, comedian Jackie Gleason was an early influence. Well, you'll see a little "Ralph Kramden" here and there in this show. I love Billy's take on life and what is ultimately important. Here's hoping that Gardell and the good people at Comedy Central produce another special and soon.

    Speaking for my husband, he thinks this DVD is an absolute riot. He watches it every few weeks and cracks up every time. Was glad to find it available on Amazon, as we used to watch it on Netflix, but they removed it for some reason.

    I already pre-ordered my copy! I saw him live and knew I had to watch this show again and again! Couldn't stop laughing! Billy does not disappoint.

    I purchased this DVD after watching it on Netflix. Billy Gardell is hilarious in my opinion. While he does use profanity - it is not excessive. Every other word out of his mouth is NOT the f... bomb which is NOT funny to me. He relies on experiences most people can relate to and makes them funny. I am very pleased with the DVD and can't wait for him to do another because he is that good. I think he has a very long career ahead of him. Buy it - you wont' regret it.
