Gardell of Eden

A down-home comedian relishes the simple stuff.

In the eyes of comedian Billy Gardell, life isn’t that complex, and there’s plenty of joy to be found in simple pleasures like drinking, bad food and giving people you love a hard time. His material mines a down-to-earth, common-sense vein of comedy based on his blue-collar Pittsburgh roots. From his rowdy adolescence to his more recently domesticated home life, it’s classic material that’s easily appreciated by anyone not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. That material — combined with a laid-back, affable delivery — has led to a successful career that includes a busy touring schedule, a Comedy Central special this year and appearances on My Name Is Earl, Desperate Housewives, CSI and other popular television shows.

Gardell performs tonight at 8 and 10:15 p.m. at the Denver Improv, 8246 East 49th Avenue. To purchase tickets, $15, or for additional info, dates and showtimes, visit www.symfonee.com/improv or call 303-307-1777.
