About Dick

Dick Denham is a non-binary thirtysomething comedian, writer, and humanist wedding celebrant based in London, originally from the Isle of Wight.

A hit with queer and straight crowds alike, Dick has audiences in stitches with their surreal observations on being genderqueer in a heteronormative world, and the aspects of British culture that we all love to be indifferent about normally.

A graduate of the Angel Comedy Intro to Stand-up course, Dick has performed as a stand-up and emcee since 2017 in a variety of pubs, clubs, and theatres in London, Edinburgh, Brighton, and beyond. They have previous extensive stage experience as a former member of the London Gay Men’s Chorus, and made numerous appearances on both stage and screen whilst living and working in Japan in the early 2010s. Whilst in Japan, Dick wrote and directed the winning skit of the Aomori Prefecture Tsugaru Dialect Skit Competition 2013.

Dick was a semi-finalist in the 2Northdown New Act Competition 2021, and was a runner-up in the Comedy Bloomers LGBTQ+ New Act Competition 2022.
