Alabama native and stand-up Comedian Derrick Stroup is not your average slow talking Southerner. With the cadence of a pissed off auctioneer, he locks people in with his detailed stories and over the top energy. He started doing Comedy 8 years ago in Jacksonville, Alabama. Derrick’s start in Comedy is far from the norm. He put himself up at the local bar he ran and would entertain the patrons for up to an hour with unpolished, from the hip Comedy. His angry rants and silly mishaps eventually gained local attention and his bi-monthly Comedy show was born. He did this for several years until he decided to chase his Comedy dream out West. Derrick moved to Denver, Colorado in 2015 and has never looked back. Since then he has become a regular at several clubs in the State and his unique brand of angry Southern Comedy is starting to gain him some national recognition as well. Recently he was a finalist in the New Faces Competition at the world famous Comedy Works in downtown Denver-which has over 200 entries each year. Derrick tours the South regularly and has opened for Frank Caliendo, Brian Posehn and Josh Blue to name a few. Derrick loves a Waffle House that’s clean and cares about its customers.
