After years of what his parents called “the diagnosis of the month club,” Dylan was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of eight. Life has always been challenging for Dylan. When he was little, he struggled with how to learn the rules and follow directions that often did not make sense to him. As he got older, he was challenged, especially socially, by a world that often seemed to go too fast for him to keep up. Even today, Dylan works hard to figure out what he needs to do in order to get through each day as a 24-year-old adult in a very fast-paced society.
Together with his dad, Derek Volk, he co-authored the internationally acclaimed Amazon best-selling book, Chasing the Rabbit: A Dad’s Life Raising a Son on the Spectrum.
Dylan Volk, also known as Dielawn, has been performing comedy for many years. At age 13 he was involved in an improv group and also created a series of comedic prank calls. Dylan started doing stand-up comedy when he was 15 years old and still performs today in his new hometown of Austin, Texas.
Dylan’s most current comedy efforts are focused on his comedy YouTube channel, Dielawn Comedy and Instagram RealDielawn (where he has almost 10,000 followers!). As with many comedians, his comedy is edgy, satirical and not always politically correct . . . but very funny. His short clips and music videos are gaining a tremendous following.
