Jimmy Pardo is a pioneer. For ten years he has hosted the popular podcast Never Not Funny, and has welcomed guests like Paul Reiser, Amy Poehler, and Jon Cryer. Jimmy is also one of the most respected comedians working today, and continues to tour around the country. 

For several years Jimmy worked on both Conan and The Tonight Show as the opening act for Conan O' Brien. Jimmy is heavily involved with the charity Smile Train, an organization that provides surgery to fix cleft lips for children who otherwise couldn't afford it. This Comedian's Life talked to Jimmy about giving back, working for Conan, and his long-time friendship with actor Jon Hamm. Jimmy will be performing live at the Funny Bone in St. Louis on June 3rd and 4th. Tickets can be purchased at stlouisfunnybone.com. For more information about Smile Train, go to SmileTrain.org.
