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.

Good luck Jocko!
