This is the first album by Virginia Jones. She’s the worst thing on earth- a woman with a goddamned opinion. Her comedy is best described as nutritionally dense. Virginia Jones started doing comedy in Portland, OR, where she was working as a bike-riding vegan cliche. She’s gone on to work in Hong Kong, LA, New York, London and Billings, Montana. She appears in Portlandia and has been to Bridgetown comedy festival, Bumbershoot, Boston’s Women In Comedy Festival, LA’s Funny Women, Flagstaff’s Big Pine, Eugene’s Women’s Comedy Fest and Austin’s Ladies Are Funny Fest. She was a semifinalist in the San Francisco comedy competition and her mother is proud of her.
