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.

Dick was a semi-finalist in the 2Northdown New Act Competition 2021, a runner-up in the Comedy Bloomers LGBTQ+ New Act Competition 2022, and a semi-finalist in the Leicester Square New Act Competition 2022. Whilst in Japan, Dick wrote and directed the winning skit of the Aomori Prefecture Tsugaru Dialect Skit Competition 2013.
