She will be one of the Gurus of Communication and Content panelists along with filmmaker Caroline Suh, photographer Seth Kushner, cartoonist Justin Bilicki, and music journalist Jenn Pelly.

Delfino has won numerous awards, including beating out Flight of the Conchords to win a Best Musical Comedy Act ECNY award, and a Village Voice “Best of” Award, in which the Village Voice declared her to be “fall-off-your-chair hilarious,” as well as the Arlene’s Grocery “Gong Show,” which later became The Gong Show with Dave Attell on Comedy Central.

She has appeared on Good Morning America as a finalist in a national comedy competition, on The Russell Brand Radio Show, Red Eye With Greg Gutfeld, and more. Coincidentally, she’s been publicly denounced by the U.S. Catholic League for some of her viral videos, alongside other performers, such as Bill Maher, Marilyn Manson, and Sarah Silverman.

You can find Delfino playing the guitar, the ukulele, and sometimes, the rape whistle, regularly around New York. On July 8, she will perform in the Funny Girls on Film Festival in SoHo.

In the coming weeks, the DIYBA will post Delfino tips about “How to listen to your own best advice” here on For more info, visit Follow Delfino on Twitter.
