Jessica Delfino



Jessica Delfino is a singer, songwriter, and stand-up comic based in NYC who originally hails from Maine. She is best known for her songs and jokes about vaginas and other related topics, as she enjoys ridiculing taboos. She's also an illustrator and attended Philadelphia's Art Institute, as well as the University of Maine. She has won numerous awards, and appeared on Good Morning America as a finalist in a national comedy competition. She's also won many competitions, many of them unusual, such as the Stoned Spelling Bee in Brooklyn, where she tied for first place.

Her first CD, Dirty Folk Rock came out in 2004 on the Soundcakes International label, and received excellent reviews all across the USA, including Jane Magazine, High Times (Best "unsigned" Act of The Month), Arthur Magazine (in a fawning review by Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore) and The Onion described her as "Redd Foxx meets Jewel". She also wrote for MTV's game show called "I Bet You Will" along with Morgan Spurlock, who hired her to write songs for his upcoming film investigating Christmas. She's appeared on Opie & Anthony's radio show, the Sundance Channel, the Montreal Comedy Festival, and toured the USA with The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players as their opening act. She was invited to tour the USA with Lisa Crystal Carver's Suckdog and Dame Darcy and did some very strange things on that tour. (She had to urinate on a pizza each night, for example. As well as doing her own set.)

She is also known for managing the record-breaking mayoral campaign of her boyfriend, Christopher X. Brodeur, and crashing the May 2004 9/11 Commission hearings, as well as her other characters, including "Bilge Baron" in her histrionic fear-metal band Haunted Pussy and "T-Top Trans-Am" (her white-trash burlesque act) amongst many others.

She writes a blog that Wil Wheaton called "the funniest thing I've ever read", and in 2007, Catholic League president William A. Donahue attacked her vulgar act and claimed it helped inspire muslim terrorists via her mocking of western religious holidays.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
