“Derek’s the funniest man in Canada. Everyone knows that. – Rick Mercer

“Derek Edwards is considered to be one of the finest comedy talents in North America. “Derek Edwards doesn’t go for one-liners with quick, witty punch lines. Instead, he creates humor as if, to use a bad food metaphor, he’s making a pizza, using a situation from life to create the dough topped with layers of tantalizing ingredients. A simple topic like camping turns into a full course meal when observations about hangovers and buying tents are added. Edwards is the kind of guy who could read the nutritional content off a cereal box and have you in tears.“ – Winnipeg Free Press

Testimonials from Fans

“I took my daughter to see you a few months ago, and we did not stop laughing the entire time. I laughed so hard and long my cheeks hurt!“Hamilton, ON fan

“He was so funny, I laughed all through his show. I hope he comes back again. My mom was supposed to go with me but she just couldn’t. I hope he comes back so my mom can see him and have lots of laughs. Also it was so refreshing to see a terrific comedian that does not need to constantly swear to be funny.“Abbotsford, BC fan

“I took two friends who had never heard of Derek before the show and when we left they were fans for life. Rick Mercer is right Derek is the funniest comedian in Canada.“Abbotsford, BC fan

“Brilliant comedy – clever, respectful and incredibly funny. Wonderful sense of the absurd. Our group ( aged 20 to 65 ) never stopped laughing.“Winnipeg fan

“My husband and I never stopped laughing. We had tears running down our faces. The way Derek looks at everyday events and makes screamingly funny observations about them makes him a joy to watch and listen to. His intelligence is reflected in his quirky take on all things Canadian. We love him and will go to see him any time he comes to Winnipeg.“Winnipeg fan

“Derek has a sense of humour that would appeal to any international crowd but he peppers his act with moments of true Canadiana… He makes you laugh because you have lived everything he talks about. A master of observational humour his expressions and timing are unforgettable. We saw Seinfield in the same theatre two months earlier. Both were funny as heck but Edwards takes my vote for pure comic relief. The best therapy money can buy!“Hamilton, ON fan

“Possibly the best stand-up comedian in the world today. A lot of new material that was as good as the old. Long set for a stand-up (90 minutes). Derek’s delivery and physical comedy are very unique. He is also excellent at delivering his hilarity with minimal foul language. A must see. I’ve have seen him about a dozen times and will continue to do so.“Hamilton, ON fan
