As funny talking to a stranger in an elevator as he is talking to a crowd onstage, Jimmy Pardo is best known for his singular stand-up persona. After years of honing his act by touring and showcasing, he threw away all of his jokes and now spends his show improvising and interacting with the crowd.
In 2006, Jimmy became a podcasting pioneer when he began hosting the raucous-but-smart weekly podcast Never Not Funny, which Entertainment Weekly called “one of the sharpest and gut-bustingest shows on the Internet.” The show has been named a top comedy podcast by The AV Club, iTunes and USA Today, and its guest list (Conan O’Brien, Richard Lewis, Patton Oswalt and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few) reads like a Who’s Who of comedy. Previously a paid subscriber podcast, Never Not Funny joined the Earwolf podcasting network in 2014. Never Not Funny also hosts the annual Pardcast-a-Thon fundraiser, a 12-hour marathon webcast to benefit Smile Train. To date, the Pardcast-a-Thons have raised almost half a million dollars for charity.
In addition to podcasting and touring, Jimmy utilizes his trademark crowd work skills as Conan O'Brien's opening act at “Conan” tapings. Jimmy has also appeared on “Conan” as a panel guest, a field correspondent and recently filled in for Andy Richter as co-host. He also conducts the unconventional celebrity backstage interviews for TeamCoco.com’s “The Pardo Patrol.”
Jimmy has performed stand-up on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and his own half-hour “Comedy Central Presents” special. He hosted "National Lampoon's Funny Money" for Game Show Network, four seasons of AMC's "Movies at Our House,” and episodes of NBC’s “Late Friday” and VH1’s "The Surreal Life” and "Love Lounge.” He has appeared in acting roles on “Comedy Bang Bang,” “Monk,” and “That 70’s Show” and the independent films "Relative Strangers" and "The Godfather of Green Bay."
Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: "Uno,” “Pompous Clown” and 2013’s “Sprezzatura,” which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.
