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