AFTER DINNER COMEDIAN
Derek Seguin Bio
Derek Seguin has worked with some of Canada’s finest comedians; Russell Peters, George Strombolopoulous, Steve Patterson, Jeremy Hotz, Mike McDonald, Sugar Sammy, Mike Ward and the list goes on, often at their behest.
Following last summer’s French Comedy Bastards show which was a huge critical and commercial success at Just for Laughs, demand for Derek’s appearances has skyrocketed. His take on all things in life have a Quebecois flare to them but are hysterical for everyone. He really connects with his audiences which makes him a fan favourite wherever he goes. Whether he’s ragging on politics or describing life with his 3 children, he brings us into his perspective without preaching any selfish point of view… he’s simply fun to watch and listen to.
He has appeared at several Just for Laughs and Juste pour Rire comedy festivals, the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival, The Global Vancouver Comedy Festival, the CBC Ha!lifax Comedy Festival, The Grand Rire du Québec Comedy Festival, the Hubcap (Moncton) Comedy Festival, the Sudbury Comedy Festival, the Canadian Comedy Awards and Festival and the first ever Prince Edward island Comedy Festival… it’s been a festive couple of years and he’s hoping that there will soon be a poutine eating festival that he gets the nod for.
Derek has been named to the top ten funniest stand-up comedians in the Montreal Mirror’s “Best of” readers’ poll since 2006 but he has fans from coast to coast in Canada. Following an intense year of touring, a recent broadcast of a CBC / Just for Laughs TV special, a few TV spots in French, as well as over a dozen appearances on CBC Radio’s “The Debaters”, Derek has really come to the forefront when it comes to Canadian comedy.
The quintessential performer, Derek is a stand-up comedian, actor, host, narrator, voice actor and most importantly, father of 3 beautiful children… and all this, in both English and French… which often leaves his children wondering what the hell is going on.
