Denis Grignon Lindsay Comedian
AFTER DINNER COMEDIAN
Denis Grignon Bio
Performing comedy that’s minus the naughty words and cheap put downs is no stretch for Denis.
In his 25 + years as a comedian, he’s always been more comfortable with an act that works above the neck, not below the belt.
It’s what our clients are more comfortable with, too – whether they’re major corporations and organizations, small, rural groups, or educators … and this wide variety of clients is happy to recommend – in writing – Denis’s comedy to you.
It’s also why his act has twice been recorded for CBC Radio’s flagship comedy program, Laugh Out Loud. (Fluently bilingual, he also performs in French).
Just a few comments from clients who’ve hired Denis: “Tasteful and intelligent” and “Warm, funny and dynamic.” (Client letters of recommendation available on request).
He’s even performed on the other side of the planet – for Canadian Forces stationed in Afghanistan.
An award-winning journalist, Denis is a regular contributor to CBC National Radio and The Toronto Star. Indeed, it is Denis’s ability to research his audiences and custom write material that has made his comedy a hit with major corporations and educators. Drawing on his own background as a gentleman farmer in rural Ontario, he’s also a hit with farmers.
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. He’s not only very very funny; his background means he’s also an extremely versatile comedian who knows how to research his audiences. His ability to fluently parlez-vous in both official languages makes him especially versatile.
Though his work often takes him to Canada’s major downtown centres, his home town is in rural Ontario. Indeed, there aren’t a lot of stand-up comics who have to feed the ducks and shut in the laying hens before they head out to do a show. Rural audiences react enthusiastically to a brand of humour that’s just as likely to be inspired by a classified ad in a small-town newspaper as by headlines in the Globe and Mail.
A masterful MC, a disciplined writer of funny scripts and a professional comic who knows how to please any audience, Grignon enlivens any event.
