GUEST HOST: DEL HARRISON (@IamDelHarrison) She's so funny, Rosie O'Donnell opened for her.  Actually Rosie stepped in to do a guest set right before Del went on, but still, Del killed it right after that!  Del Harrison or Del as most people call her is hilarious. An only child and very honest, Del's skillful, punch-line packed storytelling about her every day life and spot-on observations wins audiences everytime. Del has been featured on Gotham Comedy Live (AXS TV), Laughs (FOX), The Mo'Nique Show (BET) and is currently a cast member on TruTV's Laffmob LaffTracks. Her excellent stage presence and in-your face delivery has landed her in the Finals in the She-Devil Festival, American Black Film Festival Comedy Wings, runner up in the NY Funniest Professional contest at Gotham Comedy Club and winner of the Manhattan Monologue Slam. A natural-born host, headliner, singer and producer whose web projects have garnered almost 2 million hits online. Paul Mooney said it best, "Del Harrison has the IT factor."
