MEET YOUR 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 four times. In his 2005 appearance at the Just for Laughs festival Derick shared the stage with Jim Belushi, Harland Williams, and the late Greg Giraldo. The appearance 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!
Derick is also a favorite of the Bob and Tom Show where he has appeared 3 times in the last year.
Derick is known for his hilarious character performances including his popular German Father Routine. It was his German Father routine which caught the eye of the Just For Laughs festival and earned him a coveted televised Gala performance. Derick later turned this 7-minute stand-up routine into a critically acclaimed one man show entitled: "My German Father."
