What's new with Jimmy Pardo? "I'm in my brand new car," he says as he heads for an audition in Los Angeles. "My lease was up so I got a brand new Volkswagen. I'm very loyal to the Germans because of the way they handled the Second World War." Already a beloved standup comic, Pardo is now a renowned podcaster. His Never Not Funny podcast has just started its fifth season. "It's going gangbusters," he reports. "Subscriptions are right where we want them to be. I wouldn't mind if they took a tick up, but I really don't know how to make that happen." In doing NNF, Pardo has found a different venue for his humor. "I think it has made me want to do less sets around L.A. because any funny story or thought that pops into my head I'm able to do on the podcast as opposed to going onstage and working things out that way." 18+.
