“What I love about Jimmy is that he lives by his wits – his mind is so quick and facile that he gets the audience laughing, but they’re listening as well.”


Jimmy Pardo, called “The fastest mind in comedy,” is a seasoned stand-up comedian and host of the award-winning podcast Never Not Funny. In addition to being featured on such seminal shows as The Tonight Show, Conan, The Late Late Show, and his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, Jimmy is also known as a podcasting pioneer for being one of the first comedians to start one in 2006.

A lifelong dream of hosting a radio show similar to the ones he listened to while growing up in the Chicago suburbs is the inspiration behind his success as a host of his podcast Never Not Funny and hosting such TV shows as Science Channel’s critically acclaimed “Race To Escape“, National Lampoon’s “Funny Money” for Game Show Network, five 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.”

Pardo’s love for music (he has attended close to 500 rock concerts) and many years in the music business come in handy for his web series Jimmy’s Records & Tapes, currently in its fourth season on YouTube.

Renowned for his quick-witted, improvisational style, Pardo uses his material as the jumping-off point of his act, with the ultimate goal being to have a conversation with the audience. This makes his performances a whirlwind of crowd work, top-of-the-head references, stories, and asides, making each show a one-of-one, inimitable experience – which can be heard in his three comedy albums: Uno, Pompous Clown and Sprezzatura, which landed on many year-end ‘best of” lists.

Currently, Pardo continues to host the Never Not Funny podcast and Jimmy’s Records & Tapes from the cozy confines of his Sherman Oaks studio. When he’s not in the studio, you can catch him at one of his road gigs, and or in and around Los Angeles.

“[Jimmy] may be the funniest man averse to jokes. He doesn’t write them; he rarely tells them. And that translates as hilarious to audiences. Call him the crowd whisperer.”
