Penguins Comedy Club located inside The Vault presents Denise Ramsden
June 13 and 14
Show Time 7:30 PM
Denise Ramsden is a unique comedian, blending bold humor and biting sarcasm with personal experiences. While a favorite among female audiences, her natural, honest sense of humor also greatly appeals to men, and no one is safe from the infectious laugh infused throughout her act. Denise discusses familiar topics and situations, which give her an accessible quality few comics share, but it is a combination that all audiences remember …or whatever…
A Chicago native, Denise has performed in comedy clubs, colleges, charity events, bars, church halls and bowling alleys in over different 20 states. She has been heard on the Bob & Tom syndicated radio show and also appeared on their TV show on WGN America. In consecutive years, she was a finalist in three festivals: the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, the Great American Comedy Fest in Norfolk, NE, and the Comedy 10K in Dubuque, IA. In 2013, Denise utilized her abundance of useless movie knowledge as a fairly successful contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Just don’t ask to borrow any money.
