Dalia Malek's Solo Stand-Up Hour

"Another Castle"

With Dalia Malek, enlightenment can be silly and the gallows can be fun. She delights in dark misanthropy, delivering bile with irreverent joy. She playfully loathes humanity, and that includes herself. Pay attention to her, but don’t make eye contact.

She invites you to join her journey through chronic personal failures, career blunders, health woes, carefree childlessness, avoidance of strangers, and finding love as she realizes that, just like the Mario Bros.’ quest to save the Princess, her hopes and dreams are in another castle.
