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 hosts the award winning podcast “Never Not Funny”.
Utilizing his trademark crowd work skills, Jimmy spent more than half a decade as Conan O’Brien’s opening act at “Conan” tapings. Jimmy 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.com‘s “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 (Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, Tom Bergeron, Paul Reiser and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few) reads like a Who’s 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 one million dollars for the charity.
Most recently Jimmy hosted the critically acclaimed Science Channel show “Race To Escape” and over the years has also been seen on such shows as “Comedy Bang Bang”, “@Midnight”, “Maron” and “Monk”. 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”, VH1’s “The Surreal Life” and “The Playboy Morning Show”.
Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: “Uno,” “Pompous Clown” and “Sprezzatura,” which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.
