SC 11 - YOU GET MORE THAN YOU GIVE with Jim Dalakas

Some Kind of Comedian

Dec 11 2020 • 37 mins

Greek Australian, Jim Dalakas has lived a real life “Coming to America” dream. After first being invited by The Actors Studio to study at The Lee Strasberg Institute, Jim returned to America in the mid-90s to pursue acting and comedy and has stayed ever since. Jim’s international background affords him a unique perspective in understanding that funny knows no borders. With that perspective, Jim is able to deliver an energetic, memorable and hilariously funny repertoire to diverse audiences around the globe.
