Actress Iman Karram was recently seen on the long running hit sitcom “It’s Always Sunny In Philapeldia” alongside Charlie Day, Danny Devito and Kaitlin Olson.
Iman has appeared on a number of shows such as All American, Glow, From Scratch, but her work in It’s Always Sunny has catapulted her to a new level by showing off her ability to be quick-witted, funny and emotionally sincere from one moment to the next.
In the episode, Dee (Kaitlin Olson) complains of feeling too hot and storms out of the bar and the Gang questions her behavior, with Frank (Danny DeVito) coming to the conclusion that she may starting menopause. Unwilling to tolerate Dee’s new behavior, the guys decide to replace her and joke that even a monkey could do her job.
We soon find out that Dee’s behavior is actually just preparing for an audition, but her audition is harshly rejected by the casting directors. Dee decides to confront the casting directors, asking who is really benefiting from this situation when she has spent so much time and money investing in her acting career. When the casting director suggests, in Dee’s situation, only her teachers are benefiting, this gives her the brilliant idea to start her own acting studio simply for profit.
Dee decides to earn money by teaching an acting class where she gives poor advice to aspiring actors. She enjoys wielding emotional power, but when the director of the TV series calls to offer her a role, she abandons her class and her new star pupil, Kiki.
Iman shines as Kiki, a desperate young actress, seeking the approval and praise from Dee Rynolds (Kaitlin Olson). One of the funniest moments of the episode is when Dee is throwing Kiki through an emotional whirlwind as Dee realizes how easy it is to manipulate her.
Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com wrote, “The season really gets going when a series of events sends the gang to Ireland for the first time as multiple episodes unfold across the Atlantic Ocean. The kickstart to these episodes — ‘The Gang Replaces Dee with a Monkey’ — is one of the funniest in all 15 seasons.
Ross Bonaime of Collider wrote, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is as hysterical and shocking as it ever has been. Moments like Charlie’s confusion over Pennsylvania’s geography, Dee’s horrible acting class, and the revelation of what made Dennis the way he is are all likely to go down as classic It’s Always Sunny scenes.”
This is only the beginning for Iman as she continues to climb her way up in Hollywood and deliver memorable and meaningful performances such as her work in It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia.
