Meet the comedian who'd rather make people laugh than score cheap partisan points.
Jimmy Failla doesn’t trust the country’s political fortunes to the comedian class.
Yes, Failla is a successful stand-up comic, podcaster and head writer for Fox Business’ “Kennedy.”
He still finds late night hosts like Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert, who value virtue signaling over laughter, a stain on the industry.
Left? Right? Somewhere in the middle? A comedian’s job is to make people laugh, first and foremost. It’s precisely what Failla does on his “Everybody Calm Down” podcast.
The daily show features guests from all ideological perspectives to chew on the latest headlines and cultural oddities.
The podcast’s only rule? Don’t be a [bleep]. Simple, right?
That angle is both rare and refreshing in our divided times. Failla knows he may be swimming upstream at the moment, but he isn’t budging.
Failla shares how he weaponized his days as a Big Apple cab driver, the jokes he simply refuses to tell and much more on the latest HiT ‘cast.
