Mary Dimino, winner of the 2010 MAC Award for Outstanding Female Comedian, is a bundle of hilarious contradictions; with an angelic smile and a tough, New York-Italian attitude, she tells it like it is. Her sweet face and energetic delivery makes Mary a favorite headliner with comedy club audiences nationwide. Her luminous smile is seen on Comedy Central, VH-1, HBO’s Chris Rock Show, NBC’s Today Show, sketches on Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, interstitial stand-up for American Movie Classics Network, and in dozens of national commercials. Her stand-up was featured on Comedy Central’s SAST and Mary Dimino is  series studio warm-up act for Comedy Central's The Graham Norton Effect.

Mary is winner of the 2008 Gracie Allen Award presented by American Women in Radio and Television. The Gracie honors exemplary contributions of individuals who have encouraged the realistic and faceted portrayals of women in entertainment, commercials and featured programming.

Mary Dimino is a contributing writer for numerous shows, including the award-winning PBS documentary “Fat”, in which she also had a starring role.

After achieving and maintaining a weight loss of 115 pounds, Mary Dimino “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.”
