Knowing the audience is paramount for a standup comic—at least, for a smart and conscientious one. And when it comes to empathizing with corporate culture, Denis can relate. He spent 10 years as an on-air staff reporter and documentary producer with CBC Radio, where he is still a frequent contributor. His writing has been featured in the Toronto Star, the National Post as well as numerous periodicals. Heck, he’s even contributed feature articles for the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s magazines . He’s insightful enough to know what his audience wants…and funny enough to deliver it.

There was a definite connection with your country humour and our farming audience.

A terrific and fun-filled show. The smiles and laughter were a sure sign of how much everyone enjoyed you.
We enjoyed the show immensely. It was good, clean fun. It was nice to have you come in with a general idea of what we do and go through every day. I’m sure there was a bonding moment. Many told us they especially enjoyed the personal approach to your act.
With many of our members suffering the fall-out from BSE, we really needed the lift that your humour provided. We particularly enjoyed the way you interacted with the folks and made an effort to tailor your material to you agriculturally based audience.

The group really enjoyed your sense of humour, your delivery and ability to communicate with them in the business of agriculture.
Denis had the house in stitches with his comedic sketch on rural living and some of the new things he learned about horse people hanging around the conference that day.
