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.
Denis’ Corporate Clients Include:
Sure, Denis has performed for some very large audiences, including one gathered on Parliament Hill for Canada Day. But he’s equally comfortable playing to small private functions.
Because even a living room can be easily transformed into a great comedy space. (Though you may have to move the dog dish and a potted plant or two).
Liven Up Your Next Event
We had a great time and everyone enjoyed your humour.
Your brand of country humour, combined with your ability to interact with the audience was a perfect fit with our crowd that has its roots in rural Ontario.
A wonderful presentation at our annual Christmas Party. Your material was well suited to our audience and your humour aimed at individuals in our group certainly added to the enjoyment.
Although his jokes are intended for an adult audience, they are not crass or offensive. His material was quite varied, and he was able to appeal to the entire audience. A jolly good time was had by all.”
Your humour was the perfect ending to a very full and productive day. In particular, I appreciate the fact that you avoided the use of words or phrases that could have been offensive to certain sectors of the audience… you are the only comedian we have hired who has succeeded in this.
Your personal repertoire and anecdotes were infectious…you had the crowd falling out of their seats in laughter.
You really made a great effort to focus your relaxed humour on every day life in rural agricultural communities. It was obvious you knew your audience.
A terrific and fun-filled show. The smiles and laughter were a sure sign of how much everyone enjoyed you.
Denis took the time to insure his material would be appropriate for our group. As a result, he was enthusiastically received. We heartily recommend him as an entertainer.
I wanted to personally thank you. Your comedy is current and original. You managed to involve and interact with many of the guests in your act without offending or embarrassing anyone.
