NNF 1421 – Sinbad

00 – Hello and welcome! 1421! Winding down season 14! Don’t worry about timing we will let you know when it’ll be time to ante up for season 14!

25 episodes due to faculty days.

Our guest is the legendary comedian SINBAD!! He’s tall and wears a colorful pant!

Some bob and tom fans aren’t smart and email Jimmy that he is short. He wants those hillbillies to get back in their waterbed and drink moonshine until they die.

Jimmy and Matt revisit the above ground pool subject. Apparently, Matt and Elise have discussed the option.

05 – My mom was in town. We stayed at a Loews hotel. The room was filthy. We also went to the Ed Sheeran show. It was great!

10 – History of above ground pools – http://www.poolspanews.com/alternative-materials/the-history-of-aboveground-pools–playing-for-keeps.aspx

Eliot looks exhausted apparently.

The guys returned from Austin. Jimmy did comedy and they did NNF Live for a great crowd of 100 solid NNF fans! Lots of people drove in. They got to meet everyone including a couple of native American ladies that became friends over their love of the show.

They had some misty-eyed fans show up to meet them. It was amazing according to Matt.

15 – They also met some new fans who found us earwolf!

We got another stupid response at Pardcast/NeverNotFunny.com

Jimmy talks about the first roadtrip he and pat took together and picking classic rock station and seeing who’s picked song comes up first. Pat picked Don’t Fear The Reaper and it came on within 3 songs.

Matt drops Dude on Jimmy. Jimmy tells him not to drop dude on him.

“Dad you’re calling me dude too much.” – Oliver

Jimmy recommends Matt not calling Charlie little man.

20 – Turbulence and delays caused the guys to get back to LA later than expected. He also would not stop updating them on the turbulence.

“I don’t complain about travel but this is bullshit.” – Jimmy, defeated after the trip.

They also had to bus from lax to some ancient terminal both ways.

Pat Francis did the best acting Jimmy’s seen.

Jimmy blurt laughed at Renee’s caption “two assholes in steerage.”

Pat came up to Jimmy and performed his act.

I’ll be back! Continue reading

Show #: NNF Players Club 14T with Paul Gilmartin



Notes by: Ashley Wheeler

00 – Hello! We have a young person on the show. 21 is my actual guess. Her name is Ashley. We’ll talk to Ashley in a moment.

Garon is out so we had to get another girl in here. He’s a homosexual so he has a feminine side.

Jimmy is going to see Les Miserables tonight at the La Mirada Theatre.


Jimmy’s word for the day: Toto.

New rule since Jimmy is late Elliot gets to talk and ask questions.

Garon is second. Ashley’s shot to number one.

Ashley will be taking notes. Jimmy has never looked at the notes.

Jimmy has a throbbing lack of caffeine headache. There is no tea in the office.

05 – Garon wouldn’t be taking notes right now. He’d be running to the 7/11 for Jimmy. Who knows what he does for that soda behind the 7/11.

Garons mom is in town, maybe at the beach or Disneyland.

The day Matt isn’t here Jimmy likes Elliot.

If you give a warning about sexual harassment, it’s not right?

10 – Meeting Ashley. Jimmy talks about how we met at Conan and how I helped out ith the thewith the filming of his pilot. I recently interned at Conan in the talent department. Duties in the talent department?

15 – Baseball team with the Conan staff. They aren’t very good.

Jimmy asks if any celebrity made a pass at me.

What about Seth Green? Does he drive himself? Does he come in what he’ll wear on the show or change?

I don’t remember if he drove himself. I wouldn’t meet the guests at their car. My coordinator would meet them and then I would walk them back.

Jimmy isn’t on the softball team because he has one running pace.

20 – Ashley has a boyfriend. Marc with a “C.” We met at church and then went to Louisiana for Katrina relief. We’ve been together six years. He is 22 and I am 25. Continue reading
