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.

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
