Derrick's style of comedy has been compared to that of Rickey Smiley and Arnez J just to name a few. His physical yet witty antics have made him a hit at different Churches all across the south and midwest. He has been influenced by the story telling of Bill Cosby, the charisma of Steve Harvey, and the flavor of Jamie Foxx. Put those guys in a pot and you have yourself a new breed of excellence. Derrick started out doing comedy at the world famous "Funny Bone" in St. Louis. His first night on stage he won the amateur night and was deemed by the host "the next Eddie Murphy!" From there Derrick moved to Houston Texas where he took his comedy from okay to great. He has been able to share the stage with some of the worlds best such as D.L. Hughley, Fred Hammond, Marcus Wiley, Pierre "B.A.P.S", and several other notable comics. Derrick is what comedy should be. He has gone from being okay to being great, and from what critics and his colleagues say he is destined for excellence!!!
