Steve Cooper talks with comic/host Jimmy Pardo. Jimmy is a seasoned veteran of comedy clubs and late night television and 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, he spent 6 years as Conan O’Brien’s opening act at Conan tapings and has also appeared on Conan as a panel guest, a field correspondent and even filled in as co-host. In 2006, he 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 O’Brien, Jon Hamm, Richard Lewis, Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few) reads like a Who’s Who of Hollywood.
