Denise

Biography

Once upon a time, there was a little girl who liked nothing better than twirling in front of the mirror to the Beatles and Boney M, whilst wearing her mother's high heels. Fast forward several years later and not much has changed, except that not-so-little girl now has her own 100-shoe collection and her high heel fetish can largely be attributed to being vertically challenged.

What this five-foot wonder lacks in height she definitely makes up in volume. Besides tickling your ears on the airwaves, Denise's noise-making skills have also been put to good use on the local stage as the newest member of Singapore’s most delicious comedy-cabaret trio, the Dim Sum Dollies. You may have also seen her in productions including Beauty World, Fried Rice Paradise, Hot Pants, Little Voice, The Full Monty, Chang and Eng, The Little Shop of Horrors, Animal Farm, and Hansel & Gretel.

Here’s a little more about Denise:

  • Wonder Woman and Miss Piggy are the two personalities she'd most like to meet.
  • She'd never say no to Earl Grey Tea or Dirty Martinis (extra olives, please!).
  • She's obsessed with hamburgers and 80's teen movies. Grease 2 is her all-time favourite movie. Really.
  • She makes her own monthly mix-tapes and yes, she'll share her tunes if you ask nicely.
  • She believes shoe-shopping, french-fry-eating and instagraming should become Olympic sports.
  • She enjoys being a crafty cow – hello, cross-stitch! She's a whiz with a needle and thread.
  • Collecting lame jokes is another hobby that keeps her busy, so try this one on for size:
  • Q: Why couldn't the sesame seed stop gambling?
  • A: Because he was on a roll!
  • So for extra incredible aural stimulation daily, tune in to Denise, Monday to Friday, 10am-2pm!
