“Derek’s the funniest man in Canada. Everyone knows that.”
“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
“Derek is awesome and it is clear his career is going places. His dry sense of humor, exceptional wit and abilities to keep the crowd splitting their sides made for one heck of an evening. I introduced him as the next “Jim Carrey” that was an understatement, he’s better!”
Ontario Marina Association
“Derek was everything you promised and he used excellent material that the audience could relate to, kept everyone in stitches and left the audience wanting more!””
