Comedian Mary Dimino chronicles her colorful Queens childhood as a bright child in a funny, factory-working family with a simple dad as her best friend—until, that is, she outgrows him by age eleven. Follow comedian Mary Dimino in this powerful one-woman show as we discover together that dad is brilliant, AS IS.

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

"Among the best-written and humane shows ever to grace the Fringe. Perfect script, an extraordinary achievement. There are lines—especially near the end—that I will remember the rest of my life." —Hy Bender
