Chowing Down with Billy Merritt

Billy Merritt has the sort of acting resume that reads partly as an amazing list of accomplished work as well as a passport to some of the greatest destinations in comedy history. He was THERE when it was happening and that’s as much as I can say without turning this into 145 paragraphs. He’s naturally funny and great to chat with. I’ve always hit it off with Billy, but I didn’t know we would jump into food talk like we did! This is a fun interview!

“If it’s a soup that you can chew, it’s a chowder or a stew…bisque can go F* itself.” – Billy Merritt

I’ll put it in a slow cooker for 3 hours.
