A seasoned veteran of comedy clubs and late-night television, Jimmy Pardo has made hundreds of TV appearances including “The Tonight Show”, "Conan", "The Late Late Show", and he hosts the award-winning podcast “Never Not Funny”.

Over the years he has hosted “National Lampoon's Funny Money" for Game Show Network, four seasons of AMC's "Movies at Our House," Nerdist’s “Write Now!” and episodes of NBC's "Late Friday", VH1's "The Surreal Life" and "The Playboy Morning Show". Most recently Jimmy hosted the critically acclaimed Science Channel show “Race To Escape”.

Dubbed a podcasting pioneer, in 2006 Jimmy 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 reads like a Who’s Who of Hollywood (Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Rob Reiner, Paul Reiser and Sarah Silverman, just to name a few). 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 two million dollars for the charity.

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 filled in as co-host. He also conducted the unconventional celebrity backstage interviews for's "The Pardo Patrol."

Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: "Uno," "Pompous Clown" & "Sprezzatura," which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.
