An award-winning journalist and former radio reporter, Denis’ work is still featured regularly on CBC National Radio and in various publications, including The Toronto Star. It’s these skills that earned him the position of head writer for several national awards shows, such as the Geminis.
In 2010, Denis was recruited by comedian
James Cunningham to join his Funny Money Team. The multi-award winning program travels across Canada providing unbiased financial information to help high school students understand and manage their current financial affairs, and those they will face after graduation. Denis has even performed on the other side of the planet – for Canadian Forces stationed in Afghanistan. Indeed, it is Denis’s ability to research his audiences and custom write material around them that has made his comedy a hit with lawyers to landscapers, public servants to farmers.
