Go: "The Writers' Room with Jimmy Pardo" Comedy Central pilot taping May 3 in LA
After a 5+ year run at the UCB Theatre Los Angeles, "The Writers' Room with Jimmy Pardo" is being made into a TV pilot for Comedy Central, and if you're in the Los Angeles area on May 3rd, you can be in the audience for the taping. Just send your name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the guest list -- you will receive confirmation and additional showtime/location information shortly.
"The Writers' Room with Jimmy Pardo" is a stand-up showcase with a twist: tired of using his quick wit and legendary crowd work skills to get laughs, host Pardo has hired some of the best joke writers in the business to sit on stage during the show and pen material for him on the fly. It's a recipe for comedy guaranteed to devolve into merciless roasting -- either of the comic who just performed or the writer who fed Jimmy a dud!
Fans of Pardo's acclaimed podcast "Never Not Funny" have been enjoying "The Writers' Room" in audio form for years, as the live UCB shows are frequently released as bonus episodes to premium subscribers. If you've never heard or attended a Writers' Room show, you can check it out in the Never Not Funny free feed right now.
Jimmy Pardo has made countless appearances on television, most recently on TBS's "Conan" as a correspondent as well as starring in the show's popular web series "The Pardo Patrol" on TeamCoco.com.
"The Writers' Room with Jimmy Pardo" is being executive produced by Jim Jones (The Ben Stiller Show, MADtv, Austin Stories), Hugh Fink (Saturday Night Live, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Showbiz Show with David Spade), Bruce Smith (The Benson Interruption) and Jimmy Pardo; Supervising Producers: Matt Belknap and Boris Hamilton; Created by Boris Hamilton, Matt Belknap and Jimmy Pardo.
