I’m honored and humbled to be named “Outstanding Male Comedian Of The Year” at the 2014 NYC Nightlife Awards. I’d like to give a shout out to everyone who voted and came to the show at Town Hall, especially the great Charles Osgood, of CBS Sunday Morning, who presented me with the award.
Here I am in the NY Daily News, weighing in on the Tonight Show’s return to NYC.
“If a woman sleeps with me on the first date…I like that.” That’s just one of the gems uttered by random New Yorkers in Jimmy Failla’s new video; the comedian and author, a former taxi driver, chatted up a few fares about sex and dating in NYC and filmed the whole thing. The topics covered range from how soon is too soon to do the deed and whether the deed was even done last night (had one too many, eh?) to more, er, romantic pursuits, such as offering up eggs for breakfast the morning after.
Here I am in Maxim.
You may know Jimmy Failla from his awesome standup on AXS Television. You may know him from his recent brouhaha with the producers of America’s Got Talent. You may know him from his talks at one of Gotham Comedy Club’s legendary standup comedy seminars (you can see him there for free this weekend!). Or you may know him from that time you laughed hysterically through your entire cab ride to LaGuardia. However you know him, you’ll know he’s brutally honest and funny as hell. We got the cabbie-turned-comic to give us his guide to being a better passenger. And if you’ve never done something you’re not proud of in a cab? Well, you’re clearly a better person than us.
Here’s me in the New York Post.
Most performers are dying to get on “America’s Got Talent,” but New York cabby-turned-comic Jimmy Failla is begging NBC to edit him out of the upcoming July 23 episode.
Failla said on a podcast that his loved ones were taken for a ride after the show asked him to promote a potential appearance this week with family and friends, including a pal on his deathbed who died a day after searching the airwaves in vain for the comic’s act.
