Jimmy Pardo


Born: Chicago, Illinois, USA


A seasoned veteran of comedy clubs and late night television, Jimmy Pardo has appeared on such shows as The Tonight Show, Conan, The Late Late Show and his own half hour special on Comedy Central. Utilizing his trademark crowd work skills, Jimmy spent the last 6 years as Conan OBriens opening act at Conan tapings. Jimmy has also appeared on Conan as a panel guest, a field correspondent and recently filled in as co-host. He also conducts the unconventional celebrity backstage interviews for Teamcoco.coms The Pardo Patrol. In 2006, Jimmy Pardo 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, Esquire, GQ and USA Today, and its guest list (Conan OBrien, Jon Hamm, Richard Lewis, Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few) reads like a Whos Who of Hollywood. 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 over half a million dollars for the charity. Over the years Jimmy has also been seen on such shows as Comedy Bang Bang, @Midnight, Maron and Monk. He hosted National Lampoons Funny Money for Game Show Network, four seasons of AMCs Movies at Our House, and episodes of NBCs Late Friday, VH1s The Surreal Life and The Playboy Morning Show. Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: Uno, Pompous Clown and 2013s Sprezzatura, which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.
