He's a stand up comedian, a former New York City cab driver, and he's got his own show on Fox News- so excited to see Jimmy Failla in Helena, Montana this Friday night.

Mr. Saturday Night is gonna be Mr. Friday Night in the capital "city" of Helena.

You can see Failla regularly on the Fox News primetime TV shows. According to the writeup shared by the Helena Civic Center where he will be performing, "Failla was named Outstanding Male Comedian of the year at the 2014 New York City Nightlife Awards. His one hour standup special, "State Of The Union," is currently streaming on Amazon Prime. He has also made multiple standup appearances on AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live."

I caught up with Jimmy recently to preview his performance in Helena. 

Jimmy Failla: "You're gonna meet a lot of my Fox News Saturday night crew there, because we're rolling in pretty hard. That's Friday night, March 29th. And because I have this Saturday night TV show, we're either filming it out by you in Helena, or we're gonna be filming like man on the street stuff like interviews at the show and then flying home in New York to actually do the show Saturday Night. One way or the other, if you guys come to the Helena Civic Center, you'll see me do comedy- and you'll probably wind up on my TV show. So I don't know if that's a good thing."

What's the deal with his new book, "Cancel Culture Dictionary?"

Jimmy Failla: "Cancel culture is not new. Okay. Prior to social media, we had people who got upset at jokes. We just didn't call them cancel culture. We called them losers. Okay, the whole point of being alive is to have fun. And what I'm doing in this book is giving you an A to Z guide to having fun. Meaning- ways to go back to living like it was the 80s or the 90s when we didn't police speech, we didn't worry about offending anybody. Because who cares? Okay, life is not built for the guy who's going to show up to the party and get offended by everything. Because the truth is, that guy doesn't get invited to parties."
