00 – Hello! Indeed welcome to 1517! Jimmy was handing me a can. Jimmy trusts me with a can. I know my way around them.

Jimmy and Danielle went out to Shadow Mountain in the Palm Springs area for an anniversary for some friends. It’s a nice shirt that was on the $10 clearance rack. Jimmy picked it up. It makes his eyes pop.

Welcome to the program! Pardcastathon is coming up on Friday. Let’s top 144 grand guys! We want to hit $150,000.

Any money we raise is a win but the goal is to top last year.

Lets tease some names guys:

Sarah Silverman
Weird Al
Jason Thompson
*Conan has donated two tix and a meet and greet! (won’t be on the show though) he’s out of town.
Danielle, Paul Gilmartin, Greg Behrendt, Dave Holmes, Scott Aukerman, Rich Somer, Zach Galifiankis! 30+ guests!

Smiletrain.org/pardcast for donations or directly at NeverNotFunny.com

05 – Welcome to 1517. Jimmy’s shirt keeps people guessing. Jimmy is dried out from the desert air. Oliver came along also. Oliver danced up a storm at the party. Jimmy calls him a little bit of a show off. He was doing some disco moves. Jimmy and Danielle asked where he learned them and he said they just came to him. Oliver and some friends

10 – Trip the Light fantastic 

It’s also a LIT album, A Paul McCartney Live Album, an Ima album, and a Sophie Ellis-Bextor album.


Doc Talk! Jimmy talks about documentaries he’s watched. Including one on Voice Overs, I Know That Voice.

Matt says Jimmy’s hands are perfect strangling hands. Jimmy disagrees as they’re small.

15 – Jimmy enjoyed the doc but admits there is weirdness to the craft and the industry. Thanks for podcasting Serial!

Jimmy address his ranting and raving about Serial getting credit for podcasting on the players club.

The guys talk Serial despite bitching about people talking about it so much.

20 – Matt says enjoying Serial is like being a part of a club like with Game of Thrones. Water Cooler stuff.

Jimmy says he doesn’t really feel the need to talk about it. Maybe if he worked in an office he would.

Matt wonders what color his hair is. Jimmy says dark blonde.

Jimmy talks about doing a show once with Todd Glass in the audience. He was going off on A Whitney Brown for whatever reason and how he diesn’t get it. Todd walked in and asked what he was talking about. Todd said I don’t know who that is. Jimmy said “oh he’s great.”

Jimmy getting an email, not from our guest though. Someone apparently just backed out but no problemo! We got too many guests and not enough time as it is.

Jimmy can’t get into specifics on what he is referring or the person he is talking about will know.

Jimmy talks about Serial having the NPR lilt sometimes.

Serial is not Sgt. Pepper. It’s great but it’s not the best.


10 – Matt’s already listened to the latest episode. Jimmy hasn’t listened yet. Jimmy asks if Matt has googled about the subject matter yet. He hasn’t but he is in a facebook group with fans of the show.

00 – Hello! Indeed welcome! 1510 is not this episode but it is a good one. They’re all Jimmy’s babies.

Stomach issues! Ohhhhh LAWDY!!!!

Stomach issues! Ohhhhh LAWDY!!!!

Jimmy’s having tummy issues. The elections are gonna set the black man back. Jimy not sure why his Louisiana plantation owner is upset about the black man.

Jimmy was in Louisville this weekend. Jimmy talks about the voice of the dumb. Jimmy talks about the guy who came up to him at the show. Said he lumbered over to him and was the size of the yeti with mutton-chops.

Jimmy acknowledges Matt’s gotta get to rick-rolling people. He prefers Matt’s hair up to down.

A guy who interviewed Jimmy last week from Paste, had a great head of hair.

Jimmy hates the brothers from another mother phrase but he thinks that Michael might be just that.

Michael Dunaway – @michaeldunaway

05 – A gaggle of dumb came to the shows down at the Laughing Derby. Talking, not heckling, just not shutting up.

Jimmy doesn’t understand the mentality of going to a show and assuming that they have to be good to you. Comedy is probably more subjective than most art forms so hope for funny don’t expect it. If you’re dropping money on tickets/food/etc, make sure you do a little research to make sure you are gonna enjoy the comic.

Go in positive!

10 – The venue is going through a change. Simple comedy outweighs the smart comedy, like Peoria was. Louisville is changing to the opposite like Peoria is now.

Cultivate an audience!

Don’t give away tickets.

Better clients, better comics, better reputation is you do it Jimmy’s suggested way.

Don’t move Eliot, let’s stay stationary.

Cash that fucking check Eliot!
Eliot may not know what a bit is. He took us into a cool-du-sac.

Matt and Jimmy wish they’d lived in a cul-de-sac.

15 – Eliot’s hair was getting shaggy so he cut it. Jimmy not a fan of it. I complimented him on it.

Jimmy’s got a ipad mail taking up memory but not deleting when he deletes it.

More GB chat while I’m out with our guest.

20 – Jimmy goes on about putting a hooker in the ocean related to the bowling ball and feather experiment going around facebook.

Eliot says he did that in junior high.

Jimmy balks.

Let NASA have something, Eliot.

The guys talk about the space plane crashing.

Put something up your ass and tickle around a bit.

Guys talk about fitting a bowling ball up the ass.

Jimmy describes the procedure to get that ball up there.

Eliot might go see Wicked despite hearing how awful it is.

Matt’s wife does the laundry. Jimmy razzes him on it. Matt says that he does the cooking and Jimmy says that’s interesting because she should be doing that too.

Danielle does some cleaning but luckily she lives with Felix Unger so it’s kept pretty neat anyway.

Lots of heavy mud on this race.

20 – Pumpkin Patch trip with Oliver! Jimmy got ready for the 5k on Sunday at 5:30. He did it! The day after the muck run he did the 5k! He feels fine except for the knee issue that keeps popping up after half marathons. It’s the outside of the right knee.
