Pardcast-A-Thon 2010!!

Attention: Everyone In The World!!!

Once again this year on the day after Thanksgiving (America's Black Friday! November 26! 2010!) starting at 6 PM (Pacific Time (9 PM Eastern)) and running for 12 hours to 6 AM (Pacific Time (9 AM Eastern)) Saturday morning (November 27! 2010!), the good people at Never Not Funny will be doing a podcast marathon for charity. The charity is Smile Train. The good people are Jimmy Pardo, Matt Belknap, and Pat Francis (all of whom you've seen on and heard on the portroidcast).

It's the PARDCAST-A-THON 2010!!!

Jimmy, Matt, and Pat will be streaming live, and for free, their award winning podcast, Never Not Funny, with tons of surprise guests overnight for 12 hours. Please listen and donate to a great cause.

This year's event is being held at Acme Comedy Club (which has already reached capacity for the in-house audience) and will be streaming online at, UStream, and Acme's website (links to be provided when available). (Update 11/19: Pat Francis has started posting a video every day leading up to Pardcast-A-Thon 2010 - watch them here!)

Of special interest to Portroid fans: I will be there taking portroids of all the guests and offering up, for the first time EVER, the original signed Polaroids for auction at the conclusion of the event. All proceeds to benefit Smile Train. These original portroids will NOT be posted on my site (or anywhere else online where my work is seen) and will be a truly original keepsake of Pardcast-A-Thon 2010.

There will also be 10 copies of a specially-produced and extremely-limited hardcover book featuring those Pardcast-A-Thon 2010 portroids, along with photos taken throughout the event by LA-based photographer Liezl Estipona, to be distributed as donor incentive by Jimmy, Matt, and Pat as they see fit during the course of the Never Not Funny charity podcast marathon.

There's no telling who may show up!! (though a few comedians have already leaked their participation: Dave Holmes, Jen Kirkman, and Doug Benson, and rumors abound of past NNF guests making appearances (Conan O'Brien? Andy Richter? Jon Hamm once again? Kevin Pollak? Ty Burrell?)) (11/15 Update: some special guests were just announced on Christine E. Taylor's blog. Find out who here!)  Be sure to listen and donate on November 26-27, 2010!!
