Meet Grand Slam Contestant 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.
