Voting Home / Derek Sheen
Nominated for: BEST Local Comedian
Derek Sheen is a comedian with very few boundaries: He loves the power of a good story and enjoys the tension and release that comes with sharing the really personal ones. Derek likes to treat audiences like close friends at a dinner table, not
telling jokes AT you, but getting you to laugh with him! He has been called "A Human Hug" by journalist Lindy West of, both, The Stranger Magazine and Guardian UK. He also hosts a top rated podcast, "Delicious Mediocrity", with his friend and fellow comedian
Douglas Gale (recent guests include Andy Dick, Rick Shapiro, Rory Scovel and Dan St. Germain). He has been a featured performer at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Sasquatch Music Festival as well as comedy clubs all over the country.
