Rosie’s ‘Laid Off’ Producer Lists Hilarious Resume Hoping To Land New Job

By Neil WoulfeRadar Senior News Director

It’s not just Rosie O’Donnell who’s looking for work these days.

Now that her short-lived OWN talk show has been canceled, dozens of Harpo employees are also about to hit the unemployment line.

With that in mind, one of her producers made a special guest appearance on her show Tuesday to list his long — and rather eclectic — professional achivements.

Producer Jock Hedblade — affectionately known as “Jocko” to his pals  — told Rosie he’s in “desperate need of a job and willing to do anything.”

He then hilariously rattled off a list of his varied  (and incredibly random) jobs over the past 20 years including newspaper delivery boy, circus trainer, magician’s assistant, apprentice sign painter, professional Santa Claus/Father Christmas, pizza parlor manager, street character/entertainer at a venue that’s now Dollywood, nightclub entertainment coordinator, animal handler, clown, Deejay at exotic strip club , radio show host, palm reader, professional Groucho Marx impersonator, nude calendar model, Emmy award winning documentary producer — and lastly producer for The Rosie Show.

As Jocko jokingly choked back tears,  Rosie comforted him by saying, “There are other strip clubs that need Deejays.”

On a personal note, I myself had the pleasure of working with Jocko for many years at WFLD-TV in Chicago where we worked on the morning news together. He’s terrific and anyone would be lucky to hire him.
