FORT MYERS, Fla-- Jimmy Dellavalle, also known as "Brooklyn Buddha," is described as a breath of fresh air.  While discussing his life experiences with WINK News Anchor Rob Spicker, he talked about what it was like to grow up in a dysfunctional blue collar family, and also the gambling problem he's had since he was three! Jimmy can be seen headlining all across the country, including Southwest Florida.  He says his Irish and Italian roots have contributed to his comedy style. Dellavalle will be at "Off the Hook Comedy Club" in Marco Island this weekend.
