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
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.
You were sensational! Your stories create a nostalgic fuzzy feeling and remind us of our childhood.
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.
A large number of our guests were farmers and the humourous farm and life experiences you related really connected with the audience. Your acute observations and attention to details were very evident in your delightful presentation.
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.
There was a definite connection with your country humour and our farming audience.
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.
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.
A terrific and fun-filled show. The smiles and laughter were a sure sign of how much everyone enjoyed you.
Your performance was top notch and added to the success of the evening
