DEREK SHEEN

Description: Derek Sheen

A cuddly mess of insecurities; Derek enjoys over-sharing about his personal failures, fears and, sometimes, the most intimate details of his secret thoughts. He likes turning over rocks and talking about the dark squishy things that live under there and loves making audiences laugh, even when they feel like they shouldnít.

He has been killed in several movies and cartoons! Most recently in the serialized, Funny or Die series "Adventure Buddies". He also played a robot in an awesome sci-fi film called "Steel of Fire Warriors 2010 A.D."

A gifted, one of a kind storyteller, he is quickly becoming a favorite among comedy fans all over the globe! He has toured with Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Janeane Garofolo and Rory Scovel! His debut album Holy Drivel was recorded by iconic metal producer Matt Bayles (Minus the Bear, Mastodon, Isis) and is available from Rooftopcomedy.com. Lindy West of Jezebel.com has called him A Human Hug.

HOLY DRIVEL REVIEWS!!

Paste Magazine: "Derek Sheen has the uncanny ability to take mundane events and turn them into over-the-top comedy. His comedy shows have delighted audiences, and now he has finally recorded one of his shows for the world to hear."

Dylan Gadino at Laughspin Magazine: "Equal parts-playful-and-absurd approach to self-deprecating comedy."

Nate Rankin of America's Comedy: "Derek Sheen not only recites a recipe for buttermilk biscuits within his stand-up routine...but he also constructs a comedy hour thatís a bigger guilty pleasure than arteries stuffed with butter and cookie dough."

Comedy-Reviews.com: "With Sheen, you never quite know whatís around the corner and thatís a good thing. He has a passion that is reminiscent of Lewis Black and his references, will keep you on your toes."

Daniel Berkowitz of TheSpitTake-Comedynews.org: "When Sheenís at his best, heís firing everything off with nuanced diction and rhythmical precision. He develops a Carlin-esque pace to his speech that only serves to amplify the already-high level of laughs."
