DEREK EDWARDS – IN PRAISE OF THE OSTRICH By adminJune 1, 2020
With ‘In Praise of the Ostrich,’ Derek Edwards moseys back into town on a horse-drawn comedy wagon; a searing meander down life’s twisting trails, steered effortfully by this 30-year veteran. He returns with a payload of blissfully funny personal stories – a cacophony of shenanigans – set to tickle the ribs and warm the heart.
With an easy conversational style, Derek reluctantly pulls his head out of the sand and launches into commentary on the influx of pot stores, self-driving cars, gambling tips, the challenge of staying youthful … plus dressing warm.
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, winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, and a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”
