This girl is awesome, she does charity, she’s funny, and super talented! Dione Kuraoka, not karaoke, is a triple threat. Our conversation takes a bunch of crazy turns and we end up talking about the horrors of google images and body modifications gone wrong. We talk about growing up and as usual, living in LA.
Dione started off her early years in Burleson, Texas where she played volleyball, softball, and made the B-Team in basketball. She soon realized she had more fun entertaining her teammates than playing with balls. So, naturally acting was the next step.
Dione received her BFA in Dramatic Performance from CCM (University of Cincinnati) where she honed her craft. After she graduated she moved to LA to grab life by the balls (too many ball jokes)?
You can catch her performing with her powerhouse all-female comedy troupe, Duchess Riot. She also performs with Side Effects Comedy at the ACME Comedy Theatre, and is the voice of 'Rhumbler' in the quirky childrens' series, MUTASIA.
Her hobbies are crocheting, lip-syncing, and dancing as her alter ego, Deyoncé.
Giving back is very important to Dione! Click HERE to check out the charity work she does with her comedy troupe, Duchess Riot.
