Denise Taylor knew she wanted to be a comedian ever since her fourth grade teacher called her a "ringleader" for distracting the class with jokes. Today she is a regular at venues like the DC Improv Comedy Club, the Kennedy Center, the Drafthouse Comedy Theatre, and Underground Comedy DC's Big Hunt


At 26, Denise's sharp material and commanding stage presence has led her to open for several national touring headliners, including Judah Friedlander, Chris Gethard, Kamau Bell, Moshe Kasher, Nicole Byer and many more. 

Denise is currently a contributor for The Onion. She also appears frequently on two of DC's most popular comedy shows: Fale University and The Time Machine Roast.

Her podcast The Sixty Minute Hate is available on iTunes. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram @denidenitaytay
