About this show

Comedian Mary Dimino chronicles her colorful Queens childhood as a bright girl in a funny, factory-working family with a simple dad as her best friend — until, that is, she outgrows him by age 11. Follow Dimino in this powerful one-woman show as the audience discovers together that her dad is brilliant — as is.

In Big Dummy, Dimino explores her own desire to go to college and avoid the stereotypical careers of her time. She's a winner of the MAC Award for Outstanding Female Comedian and has earned the New York International Fringe Festival's Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show. Big Dummy is a winner of the United Solo Award for its sold-out run at Theatre Row.
