Before Billy Gardell was bullied by his family on Bob Hearts Abishola, he was a former high school bully on Kings. He looks the same now as he did when he was 30 in that 2000 episode.


Billy Gardell reveals how he lost 130 pounds

Billy Gardell has been a hefty man for most of his life, and his comedy act and roles reflected that. However, over the last year and a half, he lost 130 pounds. Something that was obvious to anyone who watched Bob Hearts Abishola because every episode, he was down a dress size.

So, I have been wondering how did he do it, and the actor finally revealed how on The Rich Eisen show. Gardell told the host that he got the weight loss surgery, and he has been following what the doctors told him to do. While it has obviously worked for him, he is not telling anyone else to do it.

Why did he finally decide to make a life-altering change? “I had to make a change. First, I got type 2 diabetes, and I was on medicine for that,” he said. “But when COVID hit, I thought that could’ve been the end of me. No joke. Because when they pulled up that list of conditions: overweight, asthma, smoker. I had everything except over 65 like I was across the bingo card on that.”

Gardell made a promise to his wife that when they came out for a vaccine for COVID-19, he was going to do something to free himself of the extra pounds. So he did it, and he looks and feels fantastic. Great for him.


Billy Gardell looks like a different man!

Billy Gardell is back filming Bob Hearts Abishola. That means gone is the hiatus look, and hello is Bob.

However, to achieve his character’s style, the makeup and hair department had to work their magic. What do you think? Did they succeed?

I say hell yes! But it is not only the work they did, but the work, the comedian, has done on himself. He has lost a lot of weight in the last year, and boy, does it show.

Bob Hearts Abishola will be back with all new episodes on CBS September 19th.
