Name: Dena Blizzard
Lives In: Moorestown, NJ
About Me: I am a comedian and mother of three. I started my career because I was turning 30 and thought I was going to die. I figured I should start doing all the things I wanted to do so my husband bought me a comedy class in NE Philly. I wrote my one woman show over the course of my first 7 years of doing stand up and raising my kids. It’s called “One Funny Mother” and it’s about feeling like you are going crazy after having kids. Hopefully, some moms can relate.
Hire Me For/I’m Good At: hosting, stand up, keynote speaking and laundry folding
Interested In: I am interested in projects about female empowerment, vulnerability, finding your purpose and being okay with failing miserably. I love brining comedy to any topic, but especially motherhood.
Mama Likes: wine.
Mama Inspiration: my mom, my grandmom and Ellen.
Brands that most reflect your style or that’d you’d want to work with: Kohls. I love Kohls. I also love any clothes that are comfortable. I don’t even know if I have a style. Thank God I’m funny.
Words you live by/quotes you love: The Serenity Prayer and I tell my daughter who as ADD and learning disabilities, “Don’t be afraid to fail. If you fail…have your cry and then get up, dust yourself off and try again.”
Best advice you’ve ever been given: “If you plan on staying in this business, learn to ride the middle. Remember that you are never as bad as people say you are and you are never as good as you think you are. Ride the middle. If you plan on taking all the ups and downs you will never make it.”
Best advice you’d give to someone starting out: Be nice and don’t let anyone tell you who you were meant to be.
What are three things people would be surprised to know about you? I have a sugar addiction, I’m gluten free and I laugh uncontrollably when people fall down. (I still help them but I will laugh the entire time)
