My Amazing Podcast Appearances

My thinking was, if I put all these bastards together, I’ll feel like I’ve done something.

Ghost Town: Five Haunted Tales

Just in time for Halloween, Rebecca Leib and Jason Horton invited me to share a TRUE spooky Portland story on their podcast!

Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone

I’ve been a fan of Paula Poundstone since forever, and it was an honor to be in the room with her.  Did I get to finish a story, or even a thought? Maybe not.  But it was awesome to see her brain work.

Jordan, Jesse, Go!

I got to hang out with the world’s two coolest guys on a legendary podcast!  We talk about goths, Smashmouth, and dino toys.  Like usual!

Jordan, Jesse, Go, Part 2!

I’m always glad to pop in on my two favorite dorks and talk about draculas, Bad Venom, Godzilla, and Halloween! 

The Dork Forest!

I terrify the hilarious and knowledgeable Jackie Kashian with my return to the Dork Forest to talk all things Labyrinth!

Bleak In Review!

A pair of  white guys (Matt Brousseau and Kevin Anderson) invite two guests a week to chat about everything and nothing at all.  In this episode, they make endless Warren Zevon jokes and I let everyone know that cannibalism is OK, and that one time I ate eggs from a chicken I know. Then, we meet a Teen Wolf who is on the verge of becoming a Woman Wolf!

Hang Out With Me!

My darling friend Myq Kaplan had me and Eliza Rickman on to talk about music and comedy and whatnot!

The Goods from the Woods

Rivers Langley had me over to talk Lyft, rat traps, and Psychic TV.

Amy Miller, Steve Hernandez, and John-Michael Bond have me over to discuss witches, Plano, Mormonism, et al.

Probably Science

Andy Wood and Matt Kirshen have this science based podcast called Probably Science, and they let me be on it one time!

CRUSHED! with Sarah Morisano

Like all the greatest supervillains, I share with a podcaster the truth that would most embarrass me.

The amazing Mike Drucker and I hash out how to be happy through self-delusion!

Moby Flicks

Me and my college roommate and her friend have a talk about the ins and outs of Alex Cox’s Sid and Nancy!

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction 1

Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction

Bryan Cook made up this dirty, funny show where we write erotic fan fiction on the spot, and then he podcasts it so my family can be ashamed of me!  Hooray!

Put Your Hands Together!

The incredibly famous Put Your Hands Together with Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher from the UCB theatre!

Put Your Hands Together, 2!

I got to be on another episode of PYHT!

Sorry About Your Dad 

International superstar and Last Comic Standing ass-kicker Amy Miller asked me over to talk about the fact that our dads are both dead!  (This podcast is no longer up, Amy told me she realized that it was a huge bummer as a concept and she didn’t know why she was doing it, when the answer is that we are all nuts!)

Lady 2 Lady

Maximum Fun podcast Lady 2 Lady had me over to shoot the shit and for some reason talk about toilets a lot with Barbara Gray, Tess Barker, and Brandie Posey!

Ep. 9: Books by Andy Weir, Tracy Hammond, Douglas Adams & Mark Carwardine are discussed by comedians Matt Kirshen, Virginia Jones, and author Tracy Hammond.

Cornelius Peter does a podcast called Book Me, Please about books we’ve read, and in some cases, written!  I got to be on it with my friend Matt Kirshen!

The Ugly Angels

In 2009, I was on a now long-mothballed podcast called The Ugly Angels!  History!

I was so excited to be on Jackie Kashian’s Dork Forest in 2009, thanks to Joe Wilson!

The Comedy Network Live Interview: Cheat Sheet On Virginia Jones

This is a reposting of a great interview on Comedy Network Live!

Virginia Jones Comedian Interview Comedy Network Live

VIRGINIA JONES: COMEDIAN, ACTRESS & WRITER

Bio:

Virginia Jones is an LA-based comedian, actor, and writer. She can be seen on Portlandia, CNN’s History of Comedy, and if you stay up late enough, on an Australian tap dance infomercial. She is a unique comic voice, by turns ingenious and absurd. Her comedy is keenly feminist and subtly radical. During lockdown, she created a Instagram TV series called Covid Delivery Scumbag, which has over 2000 views cross-platform. She’s glad to be one of Jackie and Laurie’s Comics of the Week. She documents her various adventures and plots on www.badinia.com

My Joke of the Day:

Most common Quarantine Activity: 

I have been playing a metric ass-ton of guitar.  Does that mean I am good at guitar?  No.  But I’m better than I was before we had to stay in the house all the time.  I’ve been writing dumb letters to send to friends, making masks for people.  A million little craft projects.  

Favorite Quarantine show/movie:

I really loved Midnight Gospel and Space Force.  I’ve been watching lots of weird British comedy on Britbox, Inside No. 9 is great capsule comedy horror from two of the guys from League of Gentlemen.

Favorite Instagram accounts:

I really love @diet_prada and their fashion snark, my friend Todd Masterson’s hilarious @gayfatfriend, and @jonwurster for rock trivia and #mynewworstfriend posts

Favorite quarantine meal & drink: 

I’m enjoying refreshing homemade vodka sodas, and when Magpies softserve opened for pickup in Silverlake I called my manager to make sure he knew.

Most Questionable thing you’ve seen or heard recently.. 

A friend of mine called me driving home from a covid hookup, and said “I can’t wait until this goddamned pandemic is over!” and I’m all “bitch you’re not helping!”  

First thing you’ll do once isolation is over…

Pet all the dogs, do all the shows, go to all the parties, and make out with strangers in the street!

Thanks for the interview, Comedy Network Live!

How Do You Know Virginia Jones?

   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!

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!

Customer Reviews:
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.”

An Average White Male Comic

I have decided when I start performing live again it will be as a ridiculously average white male comic.

I envy the way they promote each other, and back each other up in times of trouble. Average white men are friends to the end, even if their friend is a pedophile.

They don’t have to be that funny, because they support each other and raise each other up. Bros before hos! Bros before common decency! Bros before, frankly, everything!

Meet Hacky Sack. I will only be writing for, and performing as, an average white male comic in the future. I will take Bert Kreisher’s career. Let me poop into a pizza box.

Andrew Max Levy, @justoffthesix on Instagram, has been shooting LA comics and comedy shows for years. He recently challenged Angelenos to donate to #blacklivesmatter in exchange for a portrait, and scheduled over 70 shoots. I was so glad to be part of an important fundraiser and get some nice shots.
