Jimmy Pardo's "Sprezzatura" out today!

ASPECIALTHING RECORDS is proud to announce the release of Jimmy Pardo's new comedy album SPREZZATURA, available wherever fine comedy is sold.

Jimmy is the host of the award-winning and trailblazing podcast "Never Not Funny" and the opening act for CONAN on TBS, but first and foremost, he is a revered stand-up comedian who has delighted audiences across the country for over two decades with his trademark off-the-cuff performance style. On this, his third album, Jimmy showcases his famed crowd work skills in a deliriously loose and infectiously silly set recorded live at Go Bananas Comedy Club in Cincinnati, Ohio. By weaving stories from his life through the back-and-forth banter with those in attendance, Jimmy forms a special bond with his audience, creating a unique comedy experience that is truly inimitable. SPREZZATURA captures the magic of seeing Jimmy Pardo live and invites listeners to get swept up in the fun.
