                                    JOE PESCI...


       


Joe put on the writer/producer hat for a Joe Pesci commercial.  It’s a long story, but the short version is that Pesci agreed to do a commercial spot for a charity event here in LA, I was asked to write and produce it, and so I did.  Check it out:
