Life and career[edit]

Early in her career, she performed comedy at the Comedy Warehouse at Disney World's Pleasure Island in Orlando, Florida. She eventually moved to New York City where she began performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater (UCBT), where she continues to perform, now at the UCBT's Los Angeles division, often performing with her comedy partner Jessica Chaffin and her husband John Ross Bowie.

Denbo was one of the stars of the sitcom Happy Hour playing the role of Tina Difabio. She also played Susan Jones on the Goodnight Burbank video podcast. On August 5, 2007 she returned as co-anchor on the show. Her pilot "Ronna & Beverly" (based on the popular stage show she performs with Jessica Chaffin at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater) aired as a comedy special on the Showtime network in December 2009. In 2011, Denbo and Chaffin started a "Ronna and Bev" comedy podcast where they interview different celebrities each week.

Denbo frequently appears in comedy segments on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and has made guest appearances on shows such as Curb Your Enthusiasm, Happy Endings, The Life & Times of Tim, Reno 911!, Suburgatory, Weeds, and Mulaney. In 2010, she co-starred as Maggie Lefferts on the FX series Terriers.

In December 2011, it was announced that Denbo and Kerri Kenney-Silver are developing a pilot for Comedy Central called "Dame Delilah’s Rabbit Hole Ranch" based on a web-series they previously created and starred in.

Her screenplay for Best Buds was sold to Vendome Pictures and Natalie Portman is attached to produce and star in the film.[1]
