Jessica Delfino is a regular riot. Well, maybe a little irregular, given that her comedy comes in the form of a tune provided by a guitar or a ukulele.

She’s hilarious, but she is not to be laughed at: after killing ... Read More

'What's A Girl Doing Here?', follows the story of two female cabbies in the NYC area juggling their strenuous jobs and their every day lives. Diroy rides along with ... Read More
