Jimmy Pardo Will Go All Night (Again)
Last time LAist chatted with Jimmy Pardo the comedian was never not having fun.
He held two exciting jobs: hosting the popular podcast Never Not Funny (The Pardcast,) and warming up "The Tonight Show"'s live audience for Conan O’Brien.
Now, for Pardo, life is similarly fun but looks a little different.
Never Not Funny is still a comedy juggernaut in MP3, though Pardo no longer spends his days at NBC. He's over on the Warner Brothers' lot, again loosening audiences for Mr. O'Brien, now on TBS' "Conan."
This weekend will feature a whole lot of Never Not Funny and a little bit of "Conan."
Friday-into-Saturday marks Never Not Funny’s second annual charity all-nighter, The Pardcast-a-thon. Like last year’s nine-hour show (which raised $21,000,) this year’s twelve-hour show will benefit The Smile Train, a charity focused on repairing the cleft lip and palates of afflicted children in developing nations.
Pardo's all-night shift with be spent alongside co-host/producer Matt Belknap and comedian Pat Francis. Most of the night’s guests are a secret but LAist has word to except "Conan" co-star Andy Richter, Sarah Silverman, Rob Corddry, and The Dish’s Danielle Fishel (LAist Interview.)
Broadcasting live from the Acme Theatre in Hollywood on La Brea, this year's event will run from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (PST, of course.) If you’re not planning on attending, the show will be available online.
