  • Derek Edwards - May 19th, 2022

    DEREK EDWARDS -  'In Praise of the Ostrich'   In LINDSAY at the Flato Academy Theatre on Thursday May 19th.   With 'In Praise of the Ostrich'  Derek Edwards  moseys back into town on 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, and winner of Best Standup Comic - Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, "Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada."   Clearly the critics agree: "5 STARS - the funniest man on earth" - Winnipeg Free Press; "4 STARS - the crowd howled" - Victoria Times Colonist; "still the funniest man in Canada" - Toronto Sun; "Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy" - Charlottetown Guardian; "Derek Edwards is hysterical" - Calgary Sun; "Edwards takes stand-up to next stage" - Georgia Straight; "the epitome of timing & storytelling" - Halifax Chronicle Herald; "the comedian's comedian" - London Free Press.   'In Praise of the Ostrich'  - Derek Edwards' new 90-minute stand-up comedy show ...a richly textured and enthralling 'cut above,' delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian. Down to earth, lots of laughs, wagons ho.   Reserved seating tickets for Derek Edwards -'In Praise of the Ostrich'  are $52.50 tax incl., ( handling charges may apply), and are available from the box offices listed below. Showtime is 7:30pm.    May 19 - Lindsay Academy Theatre - Box Office: 705 324-9111
