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 O'Brien's 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.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 (Conan O’Brien, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, Tom Bergeron, Zach Galifianakis 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 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 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". Most recently he was the host of the critically acclaimed Science Channel show “Race To Escape”.

Jimmy has recorded three comedy albums: "Uno," "Pompous Clown" and 2013's "Sprezzatura," which Entertainment Weekly named one of the 5 Best Stand-Up Albums of the year.

  • Kevin McCaffery
    December 16, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kevin McCaffery
    Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian & writer based out of New York City. He made his network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in November of 2013 (after which he was hired to do warm-up for the show), and he currently appears every week on truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest. He has also appeared on VH1’s I Love the 2000s, History Channel’s I Love the 1880s, and The List on the WWE Network. Kevin hosts College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a weekly podcast talking to comics, writers, and actors about their time in college, and their best/funniest/craziest stories from that time.
     
    Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance. Since then he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Kevin has also appeared on The Late Show many times as an actor, once being hosed down by Dave with a fire extinguisher. To his knowledge, this is an honor Kevin shares only with Richard Simmons.
     
    When asked to describe his exceedingly unique brand of comedy, Kevin says, “What I do, is I try to say stuff that’s funny.” That’s how avant-garde he is! As a performer, he relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy props guy, the crazy angry guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet.
