The first two years of his career were spent pounding the pavement between NYC and his home, Long Island, doing countless open mics before ever stepping foot into a comedy club. This foundation of hard work has been thematic to his comedy career. He loves stand up, and it is important to him to do good work, even in the face of harsh tasks, like writing his own bio.Since starting he has become a regular at the Governor’s comedy clubs on Long Island. He’s performed at the Asheville and Cleveland Comedy Festivals as well as independent shows throughout the country. In August 2016 he produced and performed on the Crash and Flow tour which was featured in over a dozen cities throughout the Midwest.A burgeoning college performer as well, Dennis enjoys doing any and all shows; the weirder the gig the better. He has done it all on the spectrum – from a squeaky clean bat mitzvah show in a modern Orthodox synagogue with no electricity to opening for national headliners in large theaters, Dennis loves the challenge and always delivers. He has been self described as a blue collar absurdist armed to the teeth with sharp jokes.
