He now has a new show, <em><a href="http://www.secondcity.com/training/chicago/performances/detail/907/" target="_blank">Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane</a></em>. The live interview format heads into what could be considered its second season this Saturday at the <a href="http://www.secondcity.com/" target="_blank">Skybox Theater at Second City in Chicago</a>.
