Denden is a Japanese actor and former comedian born in Chikushino City, Fukuoka Prefecture and raised in Mizumaki Town. He belongs to the Alpha Agency.

After graduating from high school, he moved to Tokyo to apply for an apprenticeship under Atsumi Kiyoshi, but he could not meet him and gave up. However, he did not return home because he believed that if he was in Tokyo, he would have some chance, and there was a distant relative who worked for Marui. He worked in Marui for about four years as a salaryman while transferring from Shimokitazawa to Ikebukuro to Yokosuka. At that time, a junior from the Marui showed him an advertisement for recruitment of the theater company Himawari, so he left the company and joined the theater company, and worked as an extra for about 3 months. About four years after leaving Himawari, he frequented pachinko parlors and mahjong villas, leading a risky life.

When he was 28 years old, he auditioned for "Kinyo 10-ji! Uwasa no Channel!!". After that, in 1980, when he was 30 years old, he appeared in "Owarai Star Tanjo!!" and won the gold medal for eight weeks, and made his debut in the entertainment world.

In 1995, he formed the "Stardust Society" with Ishii LaSalle and Komiya Takayasu.
