Denise Taylor

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. At the age of 25, Denise's sharp joke-writing and commanding stage presence has led her to open for several national touring headliners, including Judah Friedlander, Chris Gethard, Kamau Bell, and Tom Rhodes. Denise also appears frequently on the The Time Machine Roast. Denise just graduated from law school, where teachers were still frustrated with her. She loves two things: satire and attention.
