MY OWN WORK
Something I am really passionate about is creating my own work. Through the powers of YouTube, iMovie, Tik Tok and Instagram I have been able to live out some silly moments- all of which were conceived from my strange brain. Below is a rough overview of some of my greatest hits including information about my one woman shows, Halfway to Fifty and A Very Dellis Holiday. Hopefully, you giggle a little bit.
Halfway to Fifty
On the eve of my 25th birthday, I put on my first one woman show. It combined stand up, music of all genres...and me. It was the greatest moment of my life and it consisted me talking about my life so it was pretty meta.
Due to the success of the show, I have continued to expand on this idea and even created another iteration of the show called Halfway to Fifty...2. Most performances sold out and I was even brought onto The Steve Cochran Show on WLS-AM multiple times to discuss the show. Scroll down! One of the interviews and both of the trailers for the show are below.
FEEDBACK FROM HALFWAY TO FIFTY (I did not make these up, people actually said this stuff!)
"You'll laugh, cry, smile endlessly, and crave subway- it's the show everyone is talking & singing about"
"Like an entire SNL show, only consistently funny and with no awkward musical guests"
"It was so good I actually cried"
"I haven't laughed so hard in a long time"
"Saturday Night Live and Second City please find this person. You need her."
Due to the success of Halfway to Fifty, I was inspired to create a brand new show celebrating the holidays. A Very Dellis celebrated not just Christmas but ALL the holidays of the year through stand-up comedy and music. It has been done in December of 2022 and 2023.
The performances sold out and were met with acclaim. Around the time the show was done in 2023, I was nominated for Best Comedian (Non-Standup) by the Chicago Reader (which is so cool!). The trailer and another interview on The Steve Cochran Show is below.
