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. As both a musician and a comedian, Delfino has two kinds of performances to put on seamlessly this Friday at the New York Comedy Festival event “Solid Gold,” taking place at 7:30 at the Breslin’s Liberty Hall at the Ace Hotel.

Once upon a time, there was a snack made out of dried meat. This snack was magical, because it prevented spoilage, and therefore prevented the people of the kingdom from getting sick or hungry in times of trouble. The people rejoiced! Over time, however, a bunch of people decided that this snack needed to take over the world. The only way to do this, in the small minds of these puny people, was to appeal to both men and women, separately (not just humankind in general, that would be ludicrous). Read More
Tonight, I will be doing one of three things: high-fiving a million angels, working on my night cheese, or crying out of my mouth. I might even do them all at the same time. Why? Because tonight, the first episode of the final season of 30 Rock airs. While I'm looking forward to the new season, I'm devastated that it's over. In times of great strife like these, I feel that I must turn to music and/or dairy products for consolation. Luckily, BUST covergirl Tina Fey provided us with plenty of hilarious musical stylings over the past few years, both for her and her castmates. Read More
If you haven't seen the debut episode of BUST covergirl Mindy Kaling's new show, The Mindy Project, you probably need to drop everything you're doing right now and get in the loop. As Mindy's same-name character tells a five-year-old in the first episode: "You're boring. Contribute something!" And contribute we have - everyone's been recapping, buzzing, and writing critically about the show for the past week after FOX streamed the show early. We'll be recapping all the episodes as they happen, too, but the season premiere has been beaten and praised to death this week. Read More
Fall means one thing to me: New Girl is back on FOX! I’ve been waiting all summer to see what’s up with my favorite manic-pixie-nightmare-girl, Jessica Day (played by former BUST cover girl Zooey Deschanel). Turns out, she hasn't been up at all. The premiere began with Jess oversleeping, in typical Jess-blunder fashion, and subsequently running through the apartment attempting to get ready for work. Read More
Got the city blues?  Escape them tonight with a new comedy and variety show, Company Picnic, and you won't even have to leave the island. Although the lineup looks a little sausage fest-y, it's more of an eclectic buffet of some of the best comedy in the city, and the best dish is musical.  Comedian Jessica Delfino is a guitar-playing, hilarious-joke-telling, do-it-all performer, as well as a critically acclaimed and award-winning musician who has performed her cheeky comedy songs everywhere from Good Morning America to the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds Festivals.

Today was just like any other day: I snoozed my alarm, poked myself in the eye five times while putting in my contacts, and I went to a screening of a new film coming out in the fall. Well, it was just like any other day as a BUST magazine intern. But it's also my last day. I've been thinking about what I've learned here all day, and Googling where interning appeared in the media in the past few years. While I feel as though I've gained more experience than I ever could have sitting at home, simply trying to write by myself, the vast number of portrayals of interning are negative. Read More
Discovery Channel's annual Shark Week has me feeling very ocean-oriented, and though I'm not very crafty, I have countless creative, Pinterest-crazy pals who I think would be into these shark-inspired DIY projects. Go on ahead and dive into these shark-infested waters--you won't regret it. First, we have to make sure our nails look fly. Or in this case, bloody as hell. Check out the mani below for easy inspiration. All you'll need are blue and red nail polish for the simple version--use the blue as your watery base and let dry. Then go nuts, splattering those nails with bloody red. Read More
Recently, the media created a conversation about whether or not rape jokes are funny, or even acceptable. It was a discussion in our office, and I'm sure in many others. What we all can agree on, despite our sense of humor, is that rape is one of the most traumatizing crimes. Those closest to the victim are often the perpetrators of rape, just as complete strangers can forever darken the lives of others with rape as well. Why is it so common?  The new documentary It Was Rape, by Ms. Read More
While Wonder Woman's invisible plane isn't the most plausible concept, two Swedish women thought that creating an invisible bike helmet was a possibility, despite what naysayers told them. The pair wanted to design head protectors that weren't as bulky as regular helmets, which they likened to "mushroom caps." The result of seven years of research and crash tests is the Hövdin, which looks akin to a fashionable scarf before it inflates. That's right: inflates. Read More
