When comedian Jimmy Pardo enters a room he demands respect, and maybe some day he’ll get it. Combative, agitated and yet still historically funny, Jimmy is one of the finest stand-ups working today, though he still fells he never gets the love he truly deserves. Pardo is also no stranger to the small screen having popped up on a number of shows including "The Surreal Life," "Funny Money," "Movies at Our House" and a very memorable episode of "The Tonight Show." Oh, and if you ever invite Jimmy Pardo over to your house, make sure you don't cook anything, he can't stand the smell of food being prepared. Jimmy is also the star of his own podcast "Never Not Funny," and warms up the crowd each night for "Conan." He also hosts a video series for Conan in which he interviews guests backstage called "The Pardo Patrol." Follow Jimmy on twitter. On Friday 29th, Jimmy will be hosting his fifth annual "Pardcast-a-thon" fundraiser to benefit Smile Train.
