“I love the way she talks, don’t you?!” – Joy Behar, ABC – The View
Many of you visiting this site will know this line is one of the most perfect compliments for Jodi, especially coming from Joy! Jodi’s laugh is absolutely infectious, and there’s just something special about the way the woman can tell the perfect joke about Viagra.
What you may not know, is that on December 17, 2012 doctors were trying to uncover the cause of Jodi’s abdominal pains, and diagnosed her with Esophageal and Stomach Cancer.
The news was devastating to anyone and everyone who knows Jodi, and soon friends from far and wide were asking Vinnie, “How can I help?”
Well, here it is, gang. After a late-night phone call from Vinnie, in which he broke the news to me, I decided to put together this site to solve just that very query for friends and fans to help. (Have you seen what people have to say about the generosity of these two? Countless trips to entertain our overseas military, hundreds of shows at volunteer fire departments and other non-profits, and many, MANY benefits for people who fell ill and needed help.)
Whether you’ve worked side by side with Jodi or Vinnie, or simply seen them at a show or fifty, I know you appreciate all they’ve done for others, and I’m ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that their work on stage has brightened your life with laughter! This is a terrible time for anyone to go through, and it’s important that we come together as friends to help when we can.
You can enter the donation you wish to make in any amount, and the money goes DIRECTLY into Jodi’s account. No one ever has their hands on it except you, PayPal, and then Jodi and Vinnie themselves. Please be assured that your donation is safe and guaranteed to help two of our favorite comedians and comedy show producers feel one less burden during an already difficult time.
