Billy Gardell makes two appearances at the Wild West Comedy Festival. He presents his solo stand-up show on Thursday, May 15th at Zanies. Billy’s stories about his rough childhood, wild adolescence and new family life are executed with the skill of a master craftsman. His grounded, down-to-earth point of view strikes a strong chord with audiences across America.
On Wednesday, May 14th, he’ll join fellow comedians Ron White, Ralphie May, Kathleen Madigan, James Gregory and Killer Beaz in “Friends of Tim: A Comedic Celebration of the Life of Tim Wilson.” The night of comedy will celebrate the life of Tim Wilson, a Nashville resident comedian who passed away on February 26th. Tim was well loved both by Nashville locals and fans across the country. All proceeds from the show will benefit the Tim Wilson Memorial Fund.
