“The only thing surprising about Derek is that he’s not bigger.”
Florida New Times Magazine
Richards’ act is fast, fresh and, at times, fanatical – often described as a politically incorrect discussion amongst friends at a bar.
Show after show, Derek brings the funny with tales about his Detroit, blue-collar upbringing, his mom’s dog, the holidays, living in Florida, and dating an exotic dancer.
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 seven countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan.
You can catch Richards on the air via the XM Satellite Radio Network and on the nationally syndicated, Bob and Tom Show along with Bob and Sheri. He also appeared on The Weather Channel’s Top 10 series.
His two live CDs, Sensitivity Training and Who’s Your Daddy?, are sold at shows and through derekrichards.com. Hit the site to see and hear a sample of why this lunatic leaves every audience howling. And hoping he’ll be back.
