Laughs on Paper
October 22 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EDT
Join Jessica as she reads some puns, one liners and mom jokes from her book, “Dumb Jokes for Smart Folks”, some passages of her satire, and gives the audience a short instructional on “how to write a joke.” Maybe she’ll even play a funny song or two! Some of her special guest comedian friends will be present to read some of their funny writing and share some jokes, as well.
Jessica Delfino is a writer, comedian, musician and mom who has spent a bunch of years professionally making people laugh. In her most recent book, “Dumb Jokes for Smart Folks,” an Amazon #1 bestseller in jokes and riddles, Jessica takes back “dad jokes” — who says moms can’t come up with corny one liners? Jessica has performed her comedy and music in such festivals as Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival aka Just For Laughs, Reading and Leeds Festival, SXSW, The Funny Songs Fest and many more. Her satire has been published in The New Yorker’s Daily Shouts, The New York Times, Weekly Humorist, AARP’s The Girlfriend, Pitchfork Magazine and more. Her comedy and funny songs have appeared on The Dr. Demento Show, WFMU, ABC’s Good Morning America, HGTV, Comedy Central and more. Jessica’s new book, “Moms Who Kill,” a book of comedic essays written by notable comedian moms, will be out in 2024 on Humorist Books.
