As a sketch and solo comedy writer and performer, Billick takes the personal thoughts and moments we all have, and turns them into biting songs, unabashed sketches, and absurd television. From honestly dirty to fearlessly honest, Di has taken our personal hopes, our deep questions, and our silly, wicked moments to the stage and screen.
Di can be seen Saturday nights in the longest running musical comedy in Chicago, Cupid Has a Heart On, at Stage 773. She is a founding member of sketch comedy groups Unlikely Company and Dandy Boy. Di is exploring her new medical marijuana license while writing, producing, and starring in Di & Dan Smoke Weed. In her spare time, you can find Di at home playing video games, out in the bush birdwatching, reading too many memoirs, or spending time with her perfect angel Pug, Lucy. She hails from the south side of Chicago, and only goes back for the Chinese food and acupuncture.
