How do you know comedian Virginia Jones? You met her at karaoke, or at goth night, or at goth karaoke. You know her as a female comedian. Perhaps you went on a couple dates but you didn’t like dating someone smarter than you, or else she was too fat. Maybe you used to be married to her, and you’ve been asked not to check her website anymore. Possibly you feel like you know her because you’re also into goth stuff, music, funny essays , fashion, and comedy content. Keep your eyes on www.badinia.com for articles on how to write a Tom Waits song, how to kiss girls and much, much more!

It’s a party on Paragon! In these uncertain times, a service that sets up comics with interactive online shows has sprung up and offered me a spot, so here’s my profile on Paragon. They offer comedy sets, DJ dance parties, virtual drag shows, and a guy who’ll show you how to make pickles. It’s the brave new world of comedy! It’s a party on Paragon!
“We fell into Virginia’s hilarious spell immediately. Recommend her to anyone!“
“The best 45 minutes my house arrested team has had on a google meet. Virginia, you are hilarious! My stomach is in pain from laughing.”
At the start of the Covid-19 lockdown, the Getty museum’s twitter account challenged people to recreate works of art at home, with things they had. I did John Singer Sargent’s Portrait of Madame X.
Someone commented that I referenced the original strapless version, which was so sexy that the artist had to add straps. It wasn’t a reference so much as my gown is made of a swimsuit and a bedsheet.
Trivia fact: The original model and I are both named Virginia.
