In Scared Skinny, stand-up comedian Mary Dimino paints a picture of what it was like to grow up "flabby, funny and afraid" in her Italian-American family. Dimino chronicles her colorful Queens childhood and her quest to lose 115 pounds in what she's dubbed her "one (hundred pound lighter) woman show." The act recalls frank and funny tales of "fat kids playing with Ouija boards" and being bigger than Santa in a holiday snapshot. Scared Skinny earned the 2010 New York International Fringe Festival's Overall Excellence Award for Outstanding Solo Show.
