Comic Bio

Never sure whether to be teacher ‘s pet or class wise guy, Denise still gets in trouble for her sharp wit and sharper tongue. Wickedly funny, Denise’s sardonic outlook is worldly without being weary, and she is very happy to laugh first at herself. Most of all, Denise proves that not only can a woman be tough, she can be damn funny. After being seen at comedy clubs and shows all over New England, Denise shook the snow off her boots and currently lives on the coast in the San Francisco Bay area. She occasionally turns up at open mikes, comedy showcases and storytelling events in Northern California. More often, she’s playing Angry Birds instead of updating her weblog or photo gallery or working on an unfinished memoir, “Burying My Mom in Leopard Print Undies.”
