About Derek

A regular on the Las Vegas Strip, Derek’s act is fast, fresh, and at times, fanatical. He brings the funny with tales about his blue-collar upbringing, his divorce, the holidays and his child-free existence.

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 Iraq, Afghanistan, and more than 15 countries.

"The only thing surprising about Derek is that he's not bigger." – Florida New Times.

You can hear him on the air via the SiriusXM Satellite Radio Network and on the nationally syndicated, Bob and Tom Show along with Bob and Sheri. He was also featured on The Weather Channel's Top 10.

On the concert stage, he has been the opening act for Motown legends, The Temptations and The Four Tops.

His third comedy album, 60 MPH School Zone, garnered Honorable Mention accolades in the International Songwriting Competition in the spoken word comedy category.

Corporate Comedy

Derek has performed hundreds of corporate comedy shows throughout his career. This experience makes him a perfect fit for your group or function.

The most popular feature of his show is that he will tailor the material to fit the group. Whether you want to pick on the sales manager, roast a fellow employee, or have Derek play a corporate imposter, Richards delivers humor that can be as clean or risque as your group desires. From headline performer to a host for your event, Derek will help make your function something that people will be talking about for years to come.

60 MPH School Zone

This release is like spending time at a pub talking with a friend who jokes about his divorce, no kids, his Irish-Catholic upbringing, living in Las Vegas, working as a strip club DJ, and much more.

"60 MPH School Zone" is a politically incorrect roller coaster ride that you're sure to enjoy.
