Dena was a pleasure to work with. She met with me many times before my event to ensure the talk she provided was perfect for the crowd and the message I wanted to send. Her professionalism and speaking abilities are amazing and she connected and engaged the audience throughout the entire 40 minute talk. She used her humor and personal stories to engage with the audience and was very relatable over the talk. This made the audience feel comfortable as they asked many questions of their interest once the talk was finished. I would definitely recommend hiring Dena for any talk as she is very open to listening to your needs to deliver the exact message you want.
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!
