An Egyptian-Californian who started comedy in London, Dalia has a unique brand of dark, irreverent humor that has helped her progress in comedy quickly. She had never performed before entering the Chortle Student Comedy Award 2012, but after only three months of doing comedy, she became a finalist.

Dalia won the open mic competition at the Comedy Store in La Jolla, and as a result has opened at the Comedy Store’s Best of San Diego. She also won the Beat the Frog competition at the Frog and Bucket in Manchester, and has been a finalist in the Harrogate Comedian of the Year 2013 competition, the Reading Comedy Festival New Act of the Year 2013 competition, and the Beat the Frog World Series 2013 at the Frog and Bucket. She has provided opening support for Ava Vidal (Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow) in her solo show He’s Not a Keeper, and has supported acts such as Tony Law, Rich Fulcher, and Hannibal Buress.
