Selling out concert halls across Canada, Edwards can also be found many evenings entertaining at corporate events across North America.

A regular at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, where he was recently hailed as a “virtuoso at the peak of his performance,” Edward’s delivers his comedy with polished style and impeccable timing. Edwards is the only Canadian winner of the prestigious Vail International Comedy Competition, is a two-time Gemini nominee, and has been nominated numerous times as “Best Standup Comic” at the Canadian Comedy Awards.

Edward’s numerous TV and radio credits include The New Red Green Show, The Debaters, Just For Laughs, Laugh Out Loud, and CBC’s Comics. He is currently touring theatres with his new show, “Alls I’m Saying.”

Client reviews

  • All of the feedback I have received was nothing but overwhelmingly positive. I would have no hesitation in bringing Derek back again.

  • Edwards is the kind of guy who could read the nutritional content off a cereal box and have you in tears.

  • …there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! How refreshing to hear comedy without racial slurs, sarcasm or curses!

  • Well, Redpath’s 50th Anniversary Celebration was a huge success! We take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance in arranging for Derek Edwards to entertain (understatement) us on Friday. Derek was over-the-top hilarious! Most of us were left with sore cheeks, sore bellies and with tears of laughter streaming down our faces during and after his comedic routine. All we can say is, “WOW!”

  • Derek Edwards did a fantastic job, we loved him, and nobody missed his performance. We had about 90 people there and we all laughed very hard.

  • 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!

  • …there wasn’t a dry eye in the house! How refreshing to hear comedy without racial slurs, sarcasm or curses!
