DEREK EDWARDS – BALONEY and WINE
COMING TO SELECT THEATRES IN THE PRAIRIES AND ONTARIO
Derek Edwards – Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines. It’s relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature … “the thinking man’s coffee break.” In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason. As he says, “28 years in, it’s AAALLLL starting to click!”
From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”
Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.
Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show … a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority. It sizzles – it pops; it’s Baloney and Wine.
