About Mary

Mary Dimino, MAC Award winner for Outstanding Female Comedian, is a familiar face on television and a favorite with theater and comedy club audiences internationally.

SCARED SKINNY: A one (hundred pound lighter) woman show, written and performed by Mary, won Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show in The New York International Fringe Festival.

The Wall Street Journal critically acclaims SCARED SKINNY as "riotously funny" and Curtain Up says "Dimino is a born raconteur, with exuberance and heart."

You may have seen her luminous smile on NBC's Today Show, PBS, VH-1, HBO’s Chris Rock Show, New York Undercover, Comedy Central, sketches on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, intersitial stand up for American Movie Classics Network and in dozens of national commercials.

In theaters, Mary was Connie the Maid of Honor in Tony & Tina’s Wedding, Vidallia in My Big Gay Italian Funeral at St. Luke's Theatre in Times Square, and Carmella in the musical Surprise. On TV, Mary was Polly on FOX's New York Undercover and appeared in various other television & film roles. She's in the PBS documentary Fat: What No One is Telling You, in which her personal journey towards health has been featured, and for which she won a Gracie.

The Gracie Allen Award, presented to Mary by American Woman in Radio & Television, honors exemplary contributions by women in the industry, and the realistic, faceted portrayals of women in entertainment, commercials and featured programing.

After achieving and maintaining a weight loss of 115 pounds, Mary, as Meredith Vieria states, “exemplifies the hard work people do to lose pounds and stay healthy.” Weight is the defining battle of Mary’s life and the “hysterical heart of her comedy.”

Unique traits: Professional comedian, improviser, dramatic & comedic improv, sketch
