GSStortyeller_Jackie

Time’s flying, and tickets are too to Thursday’s Grand Slam at the FPA Festival! Grab yours here before it’s too late. Today, FPA wants you to meet Jackie, a Grand Slam contestant who will surely have you cracking up.

Name: Jackie DeBellis
Age: 30
Location: West Chester, PA
Slam won: Fools Gold

AG: What was the last thing you won (StorySlam not included)?
JD: A bet about how much the Rock weighs… Dwayne Johnson…not an actual rock.

AG: This is our 13th Annual FPA Fest. In honor of that, could you share with us a 13 word story?

JD: First date, dude takes a dump outside the car… My love life.

AG: For the first time ever, the winner of this Grand Slam will get a $250 CASH PRIZE! What will you do with the money if you win?

JD: Probably nothing special… Buy some tacos and 4″ hooker heels.

AG: What would your dream theme be for a StorySlam? What story would you tell?
JD: Caught…. The time a kid caught me having sex at Kohl’s… We met eye to eye beneath the dressing room divider, I was bent over and he was putting on his shoes…. It was awful.

AG: Who would you love to perform live on stage with?

JD: God…because it’s God, I just wanna meet him/her and ask him/her wtf?

AG: Why are you a good storyteller? (aka why should your competitors be scared?)

JD: I lack proper social skills and am far too honest and open about the things you shouldn’t say in public.
