Florida New Times says - "The only thing surprising about Derek is that he's not bigger!"

Derek's act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical.

The most popular feature of his show is that he will tailor the material to fit the group. Whether you want to pick on the sales manager, roast a fellow employee, or have Derek play a corporate imposter, Richards delivers humor that can be as clean or risque as your group desires. From headline performer to a host for your event, Derek will help make your function an event that people will be talking about for years to come.

A veteran of several USO tours, Richards was chosen as one of the first performers at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba after the base began guarding jailed Al-Qaeda terrorists. The comedy tour earned Richards national coverage in Newsweek. He also has performed at U.S. base camps in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Africa. Stateside, he's entertained U.S. troops at over 100 bases.

You can hear him on the air via the SiriusXM Satellite Radio Network and on the nationally syndicated, Bob and Tom Show along with Bob and Sheri. He was also featured on The Weather Channel's Top 10.

His third comedy album, 60 MPH School Zone, is sold at shows and through his Web site. Hit the site to hear a sample of why this lunatic leaves every audience howling. And hoping he'll be back.

Comments:

"Derek had them rolling in the aisles. He was fabulous and hung out with us for a bit after his show. I would highly recommend him to others for similar events." -- Lloyd Takata, CPCU, ARM Senior Vice President, OneBeacon Technology Insurance

"I knew you would be funny after watching your videos, but watching you live was even better – material was hilarious, great ad libs and I love how you played off the audience... you adapted the content to the corporate audience perfectly." -- Greg Bottorff - United Therapeutics

"Derek Richards was a delight to work with. His act was exactly what our fundraiser was looking for, funny and clean! Everyone commented on how great he was and keep asking if we can have him again. I would definitely recommend him!" -- Camille Wolfe - Healthy Smiles of Spartanburg, SC

"Derek's experience as a comedian wowed the audience. He researched our association and studied our attendees throughout the conference, and made his presentation both personal and hysterical. The laughter was non-stop. Needless to say, we have invited Derek to return for the next CEMA Summit!" -- Kimberley Gishler - CEMA

"Derek had 200 engineers doubled over in laughter. He wrote about half of his material specifically for our group and included a multi-media presentation...he not only hit a home run, he knocked it out of the park!" -- Billy Ford, President, Kemira Chemical
