Hank Denson, an Atlanta based Comedian, has been making a name for himself on the comedy circuit for the past 10 years. He’s a friend to your favorite comedian, having opened up for Jamie Foxx, Cedric the Entertainer, Amy Schumer and Rodney Perry. Hank appeared in Barbershop 3 and has a role in the upcoming Tupac biopic, All Eyes on Me. Portion of the Show proceeds will be donated to supporting teachers.
It was a random yet honest moment, however, that led to Denson becoming an Internet sensation. After volunteering as a chaperone during his son’s field trip, a mentally tortured Denson recorded an amusing commentary about his day at the Georgia Aquarium with a group of six-year-old kids. His summation: Pay teachers more money! He confessed that after one day with these six-year-olds, he was completely drained and the heroes that do the work everyday, teachers, should be payed more. “Summer school should come with a PSA, ‘Make Your Kid Take a Shower.’ It’s hard to teach in the funk!” jokes Hank.
After receiving widespread support and 5.8 million views and counting for his #payteachersmoremoney movement, Denson not only recorded follow up posts but hit the road performing exclusively for teachers, and even put the call out that if any teacher have a hard day, he would buy them a round of drinks. Denson, who rarely drinks, jokes, “People ask me, ‘Why pay teachers more money?’ I tell them, you go volunteer at your local school. You will need a Hennessy and Coke!” #payteachersmoremoney
