Never Not Funny Season 11 started out with an overload of hilarity and overuse of the words “shooter” and “gun.” That can only mean one thing: Graham Elwood returns to sit in JImmy Pardo’s hotseat. By which I mean slightly warm studio.
Jimmy and Matt Belknap welcome Graham to discuss his love of surfing, L.A. Podfest, Comedy Film Nerds (the podcast and the book), and his new CD, Palm Strike Dance Party. Jimmy also talks his recent auction hosting duties at a zoo fundraiser, which resulted in near death-by-councilman.

More hat name information than you deserve
