Derek Edwards creates enchanting tales on everyday subjects and delivers them with polished style and impeccable timing. A natural entertainer, he is at home on any stage. Whether it's a dark comedy club, a huge festival stage, or a corporate event, Edwards' comedy appeals to a wide array of audiences (basically, anyone with a sense of humour). A professional comedian for the past 15 years, Edwards has amassed an impressive string of credits. He is currently developing a movie script based on a Vegas-inspired melange of absurdity (Magnum Opus) with friend and colleague Mike Wilmot.
His numerous TV credits include The New Red Green Show, A&E's Comedy on the Road, CBC's Comics! and the Comedy Network's Laugh-a-Thon and Comedy Now. As well as performing live from Boston to Minneapolis to New York to Los Angeles,
