Links to two new pieces:
PASTE Magazine: “Derek Sheen has the uncanny ability to take mundane events and turn them into over-the-top comedy. His comedy shows have delighted audiences, and now he has finally recorded one of his shows for the world to hear.
“Dylan Gadino at Laughspin Magazine: “Equal parts-playful-and-absurd approach to self-deprecating comedy.”
Nate Rankin of America’s Comedy: “Derek Sheen not only recites a recipe for buttermilk biscuits within his stand-up routine…but he also constructs a comedy hour that’s a bigger guilty pleasure than arteries stuffed with butter and cookie dough.”
Comedy-Reviews.com:”With Sheen, you never quite know what’s around the corner and that’s a good thing. He has a passion that is reminiscent of Lewis Black and his references will keep you on your toes.”
Daniel Berkowitz of TheSpitTake-Comedynews.org: “When Sheen’s at his best, he’s firing everything off with nuanced diction and rhythmical precision. He develops a Carlin-esque pace to his speech that only serves to amplify the already-high level of laughs.”
