Comedian comes to Vernon to deliver some Baloney and Wine

Derek Edwards will be at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre April 25.

Comedian Derek Edwards has announced his new Canadian tour, which is coming to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre April 25.

The 90-minute stand-up comedy show, entitled Baloney and Wine, is said to be a richly textured and enthralling “cut above,” delivered with pace and authority.

Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines. It’s relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature… “the thinking man’s coffee break,” says Edwards.

In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason. As he says, “28 years in, it’s AAALLLL starting to click!”

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner, of Best Standup Comic at the Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Reserved seating for Edwards’ performance in Vernon is now available at the Ticket Seller box office in the Performing Arts Centre. Call 250-549-7469 or visit www.ticketseller.ca. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
