TDF EP 23 – Jimmy Pardo

over 9 years ago

  My guest this episode is Jimmy Pardo, host and creator of the fantastic podcast Never Not Funny. He's such a fascinating comic that it took most of the show for me to get to the fact that he’s a Fantasy Baseball dork. Fantasy Baseball seems to be that you get a list of players and you WATCH their stats for the season. Fascinating! You will note how much I like Jimmy because I won’t let him talk. I beginning to see it as a symptom of something.   I sound like I still have some sort of head infection, don’t I? Boo. I had an ear infection and it’s moved to my sinuses (as my acupuncturist said - English not her first language – though MUCH better than my Cantonese, “behind your face is one piece of meat.” i.e. the infection has spread). My Ear, Nose and Throat doctor tested my hearing and I’ve lost 30% in my right ear. But he doesn’t know what to do about it. His recommendation? That I send a video to SNL to audition for them. i.e. I need a new ENT guy.   Topics covered: Morning Radio: Bob & Tom, Dudley & Bob (Austin, TX), Todd and Tyler, Jim Johnson (Detroit), Dick Purtan, Boy Scouts Musicals: Spring Awakening, RENT, Gnomio and Juliet, PonyoTelevision and Movies: Flipper (old MOVIE) Flipper (old SHOW) Flipper (new adventures) High Society, Holiday Inn Chromeo – MUSIC! …of a sort. The video for Hot Mess feels very 1983. Nancy Grace – Jimmy: not political, but does have an opinion.(Website proves our point). Jon Krakauer - Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman, Under the Banner of Heaven. Pat Benetar Autobiography Pat Francis (Pardo’s friend and great comic) Kathy Griffin Autobiography Danielle Koenig – writer, comic, married to Jimmy. Fantasy Baseball – Yeah… I have to have him back on to talk about this!! Animated joke – my joke animated by Greg Franklin Jelly Car 3 – full disclosure: Andy designed some of the levels of this game! Brody Stevens – baseball dork, actor and really funny comic. Jimmy’s website and links to his schedule and merch at the top of the page   I like that we think we’re done at 59min and then… we go for another 9 minutes… Because I like Jimmy Pardo. I hope you do too.     Credits: Audio leveling by Patrick Brady and the Songs are by Mike Ruekberg. My Website was redone by Vilmos : with is an offshoot of it and they both have players and links to his good work. My show schedules, videos of my stand up and the donation button are all there as well. Thanks for the orders and the donations this week and, as always, thanks for listening. Take care out there!
