    Comma or no comma?

    Which of the following examples is correctly punctuated?

    1) John sits in class, bored out of his mind. He begins fantasizing about his sexy, busty bookworm of a classmate Brandi.

    2) John sits in class, bored out of his mind. He begins fantasizing about his sexy, busty bookworm of a classmate, Brandi.

    In particular, is the comma needed after "classmate" and before "Brandi"?

    Thank you,

    Yes, you need the comma.
    I hope you aren't going to post an entire erotica novella here for us to proofread.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
