Dana was very funny, and had the audience laughing during her entire performance.
Dena has a natural talent at not only being funny, but also working the crowd beautifully. She is very well presented, on time and works perfectly well within a roster of talent. Thank you Dena!
Response from Dena Jackson:
Thank you Benedict! I had a wonderful time performing at your venue!
Was a pleasure to work with Dena and Hanna. No issues and they were friendly & fun for our home holiday party. Great booking service as well. I recommend Dena for events.
We hired Dena to come and perform and serve as MC for one of our staff events. She was hilarious! It can be a bit risky to bring a stand- up comedian to a workplace event but Dena hit the mark perfectly. Her material was funny, appropriate and she really helped to make our event a success. -Tony Conte, Executive Director, Ryerson University
Dena performed some stand up comedy at our recent wedding - it was a blast! She's hilarious and super nice!
