JD DFR – Episode 3 will probably be the last show unless the show at Santos Party House goes great. Shows at Slipper Room have been amazing but they will be focusing on burlesque now Tue – Sat and so I am moving to a new location. They said I can still do shows on Sunday night but I liked being on Thursday. Plus, JD DFR is a lot of work and I do it all myself. I had a great time with the show, thanks for being part of it! Of course, I’ll still be performing all the time.

I’m going to UK for Reading & Leeds Festival, Latitude Festival and a few other stops. Will keep ya posted!

Keep your eyes out for interviews in ArtNet and Calm Magazine. Will send out when they are done.

It’s great to know you. Thanks for helping me get THIS far. If it weren’t for you all, I’d be slinging burgers in a very fancy restaurant.

Kind regards,
Ms. Delfino

#1 Friend 2/20/09 Jessic Delfino

What can I say about Jessica Delfino that others haven't already said? The gal has got talent. Mad skills all over the place. She can sing, is funny as all get out and as she puts it "can kinda sorta play guitar" (a complete under estimation of her abilities by the way). I think that her act is hilarious and find her to be fascinating and brave. Doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous either. I would be a helpless groupie but thankfully I live too far away for such nonsense...

Jessica has been doing her style of "Dirty Folk Rock" comedy for some time now, but caught some media attention when her awesome video for "My Pussy Is Magic" started getting passed around online, becoming one of those must see viral clips. Jaw dropping in it's audaciousness the song and video refuses to let you get away alive. You have to laugh it just how outrageous it is and give a tip of the hat to her for having the "balls" to do it all. The Catholic Legion of Decency decried Delfino for her work and You Tube eventually pulled the clip the day they were bought by Google, which also happened to be the day made it their clip of the day.

But Delfino and her comedy is all about taking on subjects that are taboo and bringing them into the light and laughing about them. Her song "Don't Rape Me" played entirely on a Rape Whistle is a hysterical wake up call, while "I'm Saving This Rape For Someone Who Loves Me" slides down a sliperly slope of satire that not everyone will get. Her song "I Want To Be Famous" talks about wanting to kill someone to become someone important and could easily be the John Hinkley story from a female pop persepctive. But her style is so upbeat and fun that you never feel the sting of the material and that is her genius. She can get to you were you live and make you feel great about it.

In recent years tons of hype and praise has been slathered on comedian Sara Silverman who had, at least for a while become the media's darling of comedians. Personally I think Jessica Delfino has everything the critics claimed Silverman has and more. I personally think she deserves the success that Silverman has had.

So let's do something about this and spread the word. She'd got two fantastic CD's out and does regular shows in NY and elsewhere. She's my Number One friend right now, so go check her out!

Ever Wanted To Plant A Tree Near Your House...

...but had no idea how to go about it? My friend D. found this link
and sent it to me and some other friends. I went to it and filled it out,
it took about 5 seconds and was very easy. Click on the screen shot below to plant a tree in any of the 5 boroughs.

JESSICA'S CHEST...of treasures

This is a new mini-series I've been working on with Peter Bernard. It's called "Jessica's Chest...of treasures" and features
me showing and yapping about all the trinkets and treasures I've acquired in my various adventures. I have a LOT
of them!!

I hope you enjoy it -- it features my pink flying V ukelele and the song "CHINATOWN" which a lot of people like.
And especially, it stars Ms. Puss, my adorable kitty kat. And a pink gay prison uniform.

Stick THIS in your pipe and take a puff...

This was for yesterday, Monday, starring me as CALLIE. Every day, you learn a new
piece of trivia that happened on THAT DATE in history.

WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY? Aren't you dying to find out? If so, just click PLAY.

And stay tuned for "JESSICA'S CHEST" -- my new segment on The 209 Show where
I share fabulous treasures I have lurking around my home, and tell the stories of
where they came from.


I love performing around NYC. Almost every night, it's a new adventure in a new space. Some spaces are grungy dives in basements, packed with smartly dressed, disaffected college students. Other spaces are polished lounges with two drink minimums and costly door covers. Then there are even other, stranger spaces -- roof tops, sidewalks, boats, grave yards, park benches, hotel rooms, subway cars and more, where I have the opportunity to perform for people who want to be entertained as well as people who don't want to be spoken to or looked at in any capacity.

There used to be a show in a laundry mat in the Lower East Side, Suds and Yuks or something, it was called. What will be the next odd show spot? A pool? A jacuzzi? A hot dog cart?

Performing in the subway can be rewarding. I haven't done it for awhile because it's scary sometimes, and I heard that you breathe in iron dust from the subways if you're down there for too long. Not to mention I even more recently heard that the wooden benches have bed bugs on them. And even worse, they're made out of rainforest wood. (For some reason it's really cheap to buy? And supposedly NYC is one of the biggest users of rainforest wood!!??)

Last night, I performed twice. I performed at a comedy club uptown called Stand Up NY in a show, "Music Is A Joke" where I got voted off the show after 4 weeks of hanging in there. After that show, I went to the Bowery Poetry Club, one of my favorite spots. That place is great for performing because it has great sound, a knowledgeable dedicated tech person and tech set up, including a large video screen that can play DVDs, etc., a big, nice stage, a large backstage, a piano on the stage, and all the other things any performer may fancy.

On Wednesday, I'll perform my Jessica Delfino Dirty Folk Rock Show Episode 2 (live re-run) at Glasslands. I've never performed there before, but it's in Brooklyn. It's a lovely cave-like space with a loft thing where audience members can get a bird's eye view of what is happening. The last time I was there, I saw a macaroni and cheese competition.

Performing in NYC is more fun than performing anywhere else in the world. But I'd rather perform once a week in Idaho then never perform at all!

This link will not be up for long...just a little sneak of what you missed (or maybe what you
witnessed) me and my mom singing Diana Ross together!!!


This cute idea combines 3-D animation with sexy flying avatar ladies who tell you trivia factoids for every day of the week with weekends off to re-do their makeup or drink at cyber bars or do whatever sexy flying avatars do when they get a break.

Featuring the voices of Jane Pear, Michelle Carlo, Rosie Rebel and myself, these little 3-D creepazoids
tell you stuff you may have already known but probably didn't know. The writing is pretty cute and fun
and you will definitely pick up a fact or two. If you're a trivia lover, you will dig CALGAL.

Animated and written by Peter Bernard. My little monsterette is a Southern Belle named Callie. Check it
every day and learn something new!!

You can also visit the website here, at to see back dated CALGALS.

In other news, if you missed last night's Dirty Folk Rock Show, you have a chance to see it again, next Wed. Feb. 18th and
then it will be gone, like a comet, and you will probably never get to see it live again. I will be putting up some pictures and reviews of the show after Feb. 18th.

Next Dirty Folk Rock kids show for adults, March 4th, 8 PM at Santos Party House, 100 Lafayette at Canal. $5.

Tuesday, February 10, 2009


I made it to the next round in the MUSIC IS A JOKE competition. There is a good chance that this show will eventually get developed into a television show. I hope to see you there next week. But in the meantime, please enjoy this photograph of me dressed like a human ass, er, I mean a beautiful unicorn!!

To hear the unicorn song live, come to SKITS N TITS at 308 Bowery this WED at 10 PM. OR come to the MARCH Jessica Delfino Dirty Folk Rock kids show for adults MARCH 4 at Santos Party House for Episode 3: Mythical Creatures Can Teach You Things.

This song is called, "Interracial Cop Friends" and was my entry for last week's
"MUSIC IS A JOKE" musical comedy competition at Stand Up NY.

I put in my all and my best. I also wore a nice striped jacket to show that I'm serious
about what I do for a living. And hey, it worked. I made it to the next round!
Next week's theme is HARRY POTTER. Stupid theme! Let's see what I can do with it.

In the meantime, please go to this website and VOTE FOR ME if you love me. You don't have
to watch the whole video, just scroll down to the bottom and vote for me, unless you want
to hear my new song about "Interracial Cop Friends" that I wrote on my flying V ukelele.

I hope ya like it, I wrote it with love in my heart as my contribution to race relations on planet Earth.

If you want to come see the show next Monday, it's at 8:30 at Stand Up NY, 78th and Broadway.
It's free to get in if you say you voted, but you still have to buy a coupla drinks which might run you
about 20 smackers. But I don't ask you for too much so maybe you will do it this one time.

And you'll see some other great comedians. I'm not kidding. The competition on this show is VERY
tough. I will be surprised if I make it to next week!!

A hearty congrats to the awesome Jeff Stark on his super creative and fun play, "IRT: A Tragedy In Three Stations" which
I saw on opening night. The play features Art Star Michelle Carlo who plays a great MTA worker and other familiar faces and takes place on platforms and subway cars between Manhattan and Brooklyn.

I'd encourage you to go see it but it's SOLD OUT.

You can read all about it in today's NY Times HERE, though.
