Montreal-based stand up Derek Seguin is undeniably one of Canada’s hottest comedians. He has performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs festival an impressive seven times and he filmed a gala set for HBO at the festival where he received a standing-ovation from a sold out audience of 3,500 people. He is also the winner of Sirius XM’s Top Comic contest making him officially the funniest person in Canada. Perhaps most impressively, he has appeared on (and won) CBC’s The Debaters more than any other comedian in history. His new concert album Panderek (1st Wave!) is available now on CD and iTunes and was recorded at Montreal’s The Comedy Nest the weekend before lockdown in March this year. He was one of the first comedians to successfully transition to virtual shows and James chats with him about the intricacies of this new form of live entertainment.
