In her comedy, she examines the complexities of what it means to be a mixed race, multicultural woman through her wry observations on many topics such as dating, family, friendships, and day-to-day life. Through her witty nature and playful charisma, she is able to dissect a wide variety of subjects in a way that is both entertaining and thought-provoking, so that everyone can understand and relate to her life experience.

DiGiorgio has developed a reputation as an extremely talented comedic performer because, in addition to stand-up, she is also a well-rounded entertainer. Influenced by her mother Sylvia Copeland—a renowned concert vocalist and piano prodigy—and her uncle Henry Le Tang—a Tony Award-winning choreographer—she has always channeled her work through a variety of artistic mediums. DiGiorgio has incorporated her Meisner acting training, along with her vocal and dance training (including tap dancing) into her performances. In addition to her stand-up comedy, she has performed her one-woman, Shakespearean play, “RATS!,” from New York to California. She also directed the film “Bitter Jester,” which received rave reviews from “Variety” and “The New York Times.” Additionally, she established herself as a radio personality when she co-hosted Hot 97’s “The Morning Show with Ed and Maija” in New York City.

Whether DiGiorgio is telling jokes, acting in plays, making movies, working as a radio host, or singing jazz songs, it is clear that she is a gifted performer who truly entertains–and amuses– every audience that she encounters.
