You may know Jimmy Pardo as the comedic force that is the "Never Not Funny Podcast". I was lucky enough to do it recently and it is always a pleasure to try to keep up with the quickest wit around. He returned the favor and came to Father Time to talk about not only his career but the joy of Fatherhood. He is a brilliantly funny comedian, a game show host, and also a wonderful father.

How did an actor go on to become the President of Basketball Operations for the NBA's Portland Tailblazers? Well, you'll have to listen, but it's one of the most inspiring and unlikely stories you'll ever hear. As one of my oldest friends, Neil and I were struggling to make our mark in Hollywood while living the bachelor life. Now we're both married with a couple of kids. See how he runs an NBA franchise while juggling his own family life and how life is different from us living in the same "rent controlled" apartment building 20 years ago to now living in our "wife-controlled" homes. Neil's journey to the top of an NBA front office is one of the best examples of "Do what You love" and we'll contemplate the question of whether "work ethic" is passed on to your children.

But he also shared stories of booking Saturday Night Live, Anchorman, and his upcoming CBS sitcom, "Superior Doughnuts". Come along and see how the funniest guy in town deals with five children who sometimes say, "You're not funny, Dad."
