HEADLINER: DERICK LENGWENUS
Originally from Montreal, Derick currently resides in Chicago where he performs stand-up and studies improv at Second City. His credits include: Winner of Best Comedy in the Montreal Fringe Festival, Winner of the Audience Choice Award at the Just For Laughs Festival, and finalist at the San Francisco Comedy Competition.
Derick is a favorite of the prestigious Just For Laughs festival where he has appeared five times. His 2005 appearance at the Just for Laughs festival made such an impression he was offered a one-hour television special after only five years in the business. The special was so successful it earned him his first Canadian Comedy Award nomination!
Derick is known for his hilarious character performances including his popular German Father Routine. Derick later turned this 7-minute stand-up routine into a critically acclaimed one man show entitled: “My German Father.” In 2007 Derick followed with his second award winning show – “George Bush: Live Press Conference” where he flexed his improvisation muscles.
Derick can be seen in performing stand-up comedy in clubs and theaters all across North America. Derick is also a favorite at corporate events and has performed for such corporations as Reebok, GM, and Accenture.
