Maybe it has something to do with the songs I sing, but I get lots of strange gifts from my friends. a solid milk chocolate bird...

...a plastic toy pop-singing stick figure...


...a stress tit...

...and my favorite one so far...from Japan...

...a magical singing poo...

It's like a regular Spencer's Gifts in here. But normal gifts would never do. Thanks for the chocolate turkeys, squeezable boobs and singing shits, friends.

Phrases that will live in infamy

They forgot "My Pussy Is Magic".


Sometimes it takes only a word, or just a few, to become immortalized in television history.

The TV Land cable network has compiled a list of the 100 greatest catchphrases in TV, from the serious - Walter Cronkite's nightly signoff "And that's the way it is" - to the silly: "We are two wild and crazy guys!"

The network will air a countdown special, "The 100 Greatest TV Quotes & Catch Phrases," over five days starting Dec. 11.

"We have found that television is such a huge part of baby boomers' DNA that it makes sense that so much of America's pop culture jargon has come from TV," said Larry Jones, TV Land president.

The greatest number of moments, 26, come from the 1970s. TV Land identified nine moments from this decade. Ten are from commercials, and 28 from comedies, including six from "Saturday Night Live."

Do you like porn? If so, I don't think you'll like this link. But you'll think maybe it will be something you will like. Also, if you like crappy computer program art, you may enjoy this link. Thanks to my friend for sending it to me. I don't know if he wants to be linked to this link or not. Like when porn gets sent in anonymous envelopes to your home or work place. I think it is like that.

Here is a short segment from last week's show. If you haven't seen my resident series show at Rififi yet, you still have TWO more chances:

TOMORROW, Tuesday, November 21st and
NEXT Tuesday, November 28th
10 PM (sharp-ish)
Rififi / Cinema Classics
332 E. 11th St.

No two shows are the same! The show is called a "solo" show, but it is really no such thing. Many of my favorite comedy guests will also entertain you with surprise appearances in the show (different performers every week) playing characters through out the show. There are also short films, (including "My Pussy Is Magic" which was recently KICKED OFF THE INTERNET for being too awesome), jokes and songs; some classics and some from the never before heard Jessica Delfino vaults.

Come and join in the obscenity before obscenity is outlawed!

Delfino plays a fortune-telling airport...Can anyone say "typecast" ???

I know, I are dying to see some photos from the first "Little Building" showing in Brooklyn last Friday. Well, I have magical powers, if you don't know. So, click on the link below to have your wishes answered. There are only two shows left! It's a pretty great play, even if I do say so myself, and I am in it. If you've ever seen Jollyship The Whiz-Bang and loved what they do, you may also dig this shizzy. If you've never seen them, what the hell are you doing with your life? And also, this play is kid friendly, so bring the rug rats. Last week, the show got a Voice Choice in the Village Voice and was pretty full, so advance tickets are recommended.

Friday Nov. 17th and Friday Nov. 24th
8 PM
Tickets are $12 or $10 if you get them at
Galapagos Art Space
70 N. 6th St. Williamsburg

Chuck Norris's girlfriend once asked him how much wood

This is one of the weirdest reports I've ever seen. Supposedly, scientists have invented "the perfect comedy face" (?) for some reason. I barely even know what that is supposed to mean. Um...aren't scientists supposed to be curing cancer?

According to this article, "the perfect comedy face" is full of soft, feminine features. Such as this gal's:

Kristen Schaal

The article then goes on to explain that is what makes Ricky Gervais so damn funny.

Perhaps this is why Reggie Watts won the Andy Kaufman Award ($5000!) last night...


Delfino, pictured, with her face full of soft, feminine, hilarious features, can be seen tonight at Galapagos at 8 PM in "Jolly-Ship The Whiz-Bang's new play, "Little Building".

Look at my pretty mommy...

This was back before she had any cellulite. Not that she has any now. She has the body of a jogger. And she doesn't even jog. It's amazing. It's like she's trying to show me up with her fine physique. I get it, Mom. You're hot.

In this photo, she was 18. The year was 1976. She looks a little like Janet Jackson. Steely Dan had just written the hit, "FM" for the film, "FM". Remember FM - the concept? How many of you still listen to the radio? I listen to the radio. I listen to it in the shower. I listen as I wash, and then sometimes I dance.
