Jimmy Pardo is as funny talking to a stranger in an elevator as he is talking to a crowd from the comic stage. That's because everything he observes or thinks, he immediately scans to find the funny. And he always finds the funny. After Jimmy was told for like the thousandth time that he was even funnier offstage than he was onstage, he dropped most of the jokes from his act. Now he spends nearly his entire set interacting with, and making fun of, his audience. And they love it.

Jimmy stands at the very center of the comedy world. That's not only because he's the ultimate "comic's comic," (as he's often called), but also because he represents where comedy is going, and everybody wants to come along.

Jimmy's raucous-but-smart weekly podcast, "Never Not Funny," has revolutionized the way comedians use the internet to connect with their audiences. It's the No. 2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian, after Ricky Gervais's. His guest list reads like a Who's Who of comedy: Conan O'Brien, Adam Carolla, Kevin Pollack, and Sarah Silverman have all been guests. Actors Jon Hamm, Ty Burrell and Craig Bierko have appeared on several of the funniest episodes.

"Never Not Funny" was voted by both iTunes and USA Today as one of the top podcasts of 2006 and 2007. It was an Editor's Pick in the September 2009 issue of Esquire magazine. In 2010, GQ magazine called the show "The Number 1 Relatively Obscure Thing You Need to Be Paying Attention To." The show, which started in Jimmy's dining room in 2006, now regularly hits the road with live tapings at festivals like SF Sketchfest, MaxFunCon, the Vancouver Comedy Festival and Bumbershoot. Twice, Jimmy and Co. have presented the "Pardcast-A-Thon," taping for up to 12 hours to raise money for The Smile Train.

Besides the podcast, Jimmy continues to headline at some of America's top comedy clubs and currently works as Conan O'Brien's opening act on "Conan," getting the studio audience into a laughing mood before the show tapes (he did the same for Conan on "The Tonight Show").

A true multimedia talent, Jimmy has frequently appeared on television and in movies. He has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." He had his own half-hour special, "Comedy Central Presents Jimmy Pardo." He hosted "National Lampoon's Funny Money" on the Game Show Network, and was the co-host of AMC's "Movies at Our House" for four seasons. He has hosted episodes of VH1's "The Surreal Life" and "Love Lounge" and NBC's "Late Friday." He's appeared on popular shows such as "Monk," "That 70s Show," and "Becker." And he has acted in independent films such as "Relative Strangers" and "The Godfather of Green Bay."

Jimmy was the co-writer and star of the critically-acclaimed one-man show subtly titled "Attention Must Be Paid: The Jimmy Pardo Story" and a live pilot presentation, "Jimmy Pardo's Dance Party." He hosts monthly shows at the famed Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. He has recorded two comedy albums, "Uno" and "Pompous Clown."

A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed first album, Stever Fever. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction.

Gillespie’s act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Fox’s Laughs as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT’s Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.

Gillespie has also had the pleasure of sharing the biggest stages with some of the best comics in the country, including opening appearances for Dave Attell, Jim Breuer, Tom Segura, Kyle Kinnane, Tom Green, Harland Williams, Doug Benson, Emo Phillips, and Gilbert Gottfried.

For over 20 years Todd Yohn's high energy, non-stop act has blended stand-up, improv, and music into one deliciously stimulating show. His fresh and clever origional comedy tunes such as "The Femenine Hygene Song" "Daddy Please Don't Go" and the very popular " Orange Barrels" have separated Todd from the "other " guitar playing comedy acts. Todd has been an accomplished musician for many years and still has a songwriting deal with MCA Publishing in Nashville, Tennesse. He is one of the few performers today who has the rare ability to produce a large amounts of laughter with the lift of an eye brow or droop of the lip. Todd's combination of material, uncanny sense of timing and his complete uniqueness of personality, has earned him the reputation as one of the best club comedians in the country. As a matter of fact, Tom Griswald of the nationally syndicated morning radio show "Bob and Tom" has said that, "Todd Yohn is, by far, the funniest live comedian show anyone will ever see".

At 6'3'' and 180 pounds Todd is a red-headed, walking, talking cartoon. A master of physical comedy, Todd can move in and out of characters within seconds and make anyone think they are watching multiple performers. But then again, that's what Todd does best! Watching Todd's show, one gets the feeling that they are watching an " out-take" of a movie as Todd is laughing himself and having a genuinely grand time on stage. This self depricating comic puts you at ease from the beginning to the end of his show and you will hurt from laughing as you leave his performance.

Todd is heavily requested on the college circuit as well as the corporate world and national comedy club nework. You might have seen Todd on HBO, SHOWTIME, VH-1, and COMEDY CENTRAL. He has worked with Glenn Campbell, The Four Tops, Charlie Daniels, and is Joan Rivers' favorite opening act (in his price range). His humor and songwriting have made him one of the ORIGIONAL "regulars" of "The Bob and Tom Show". According to Kevin Brady of Outback Concert Promotions, " Todd is my number one closer for the "Friends of the Bob and Tom Show" national tours. Simply put, Todd does comedy the way comedy was meant to be performed. He is a total performer who will thrill any audience! Don't miss the opportunity to experience this "one of a kind" entertainer!

" What I take from life, I give back through my art. So far I've taken nothing but crap." So says Henry Phillips, who has been seen performing his hilariously twisted songs and stories on Comedy Central, ABC's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' and NBC's 'Late Friday'. He can also be heard regularly on the BOB&TOM' Show, performing such songs as 'The Guitar Pill' and 'She's Talking Again'. His nationally released CDs, fusing mellow folk-rock ballads with taboo-smashing lyrics have earned him mention in Billboard magazine's 'Critic's Choice', as well as acclaim from the king of novelty music himself, Dr. Demento, who referred to Phillips as "The funniest young singer-songwriter to come our way in quite a while." "His arsenal of catchy guitar tunes, deadpan delivery, and rapier wit annihilates relationships, political correctness, pop culture, and the news." - Susan Karlin, Los Angeles Times "...fusing the mediums of comedy and music is so difficult that you have to go back years to find something comparable." - Jonathan Widran, Music Connection Magazine
