Experience & Qualifications
2002 VTS International. LONDON
I attended a voice-over workshop class. I consider my speaking voice to be versatile enough for whatever style is required for radio and television commercials: Hard sell, fast and attention grabbing, in your face, humorous, or moderately paced and Informative, to calm, sympathetic and slow, with a natural accent placed somewhere between upper lower, and lower middle class - but can comfortably go either way! My diction is clear throughout and I can impersonate a wide range of character voices, regional accents, Cartoon voices and cats and dogs!
2004 The Academy of Radio, Film & Television LONDON.

STAND UP COMEDY
My comedy name is DENNY DO WELL it is based on a Bruce Forsythe catchphrase. I ventured into the strange world of Stand up comedy in 2009. The standing up bit is easy... making people laugh is the tricky part.
In 2003 attended a comedy workshop with Tony Parkins from Comedy Crooners and he was very impressed with my stupid jokes and gave me loads of encouragement. He said "You should be OUT there..." then he opened the door and told me to leave! Having spent many years making sarcastic remarks on the mic as a DJ. It gave me the confidence to banter with people and tell stupid jokes at kids parties, (if you're not happy and you know it - don't clap your hands) but I soon learned that it can sometimes be frowned upon for the DJ to be offensive at someone's wedding - but it is perfectly acceptable at a comedy gig.
I play guitar in my act and can sometimes make up a song about someone in the audience. I also use pictures and silly props, like a jar of mayonnaise and a box of man-size tissues (don't ask) Some of my jokes are so bad they are toe curlingly painful. If you ever see my act, please lower your expectations and prepare to groan.
My regular gigs include the ONE FOOT IN THE GROVE in South Wimbledon with Bob Walshy Walsh. The CAVENDISH in Stockwell, venues around London with COMEDYBIN, WHITE SOCK and JOKECLUB.
I am available for open mic spots and, of course those all important PAID gigs (I keep promising my Bank manager "One day it will happen!" but he thinks I'm just trying to be funny) - and would also like to be considered for TV warm up.
Very family friendly humour featuring guitar and props.
