THE GUEST LIST - Live TV Taping! Presented by Seeso
The Guest List, available as an audio series on Audible Channels and as a television series on Seeso, features some of today’s best stand-ups performing in front of an invite-only audience. And now we’re back for more in season two, with the first ever Sketchfest series being produced for TV! Every lineup is stacked with amazing standups, and this will be an unprecedented party. There are eight amazing shows to choose from, but you can’t get into The Guest List unless you’re on the guest list – so get your tickets while they’re still available.
NEW ALBUM is coming soon from Stand Up! Records.
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."
His debut album, HOW TO GET HIGH WITHOUT DRUGS, is an intense exercise in wordplay, improvisation, and storytelling. Those who enter Singer's world will be rewarded with knowledge of the connections between dimwitted hunters and Tyra Banks, cookies and racial tension, and even gay marriage and dragons, courtesy of a comedian who expertly connects insanity and brilliance.
Both his debut album and sophomore release COMEDY WONDER TOWN were selected as Top 10 Comedy CD's of the year (2010 & 2012). He was selected by LA Weekly as one of "10 LA Comics to Watch" for 2014, was mentioned in NY Magazine as a "Comic to Watch," was one of 4 finalist in CMT's Next Big Comic Contest, is a frequent guest on the WTF Podcast w/Marc Maron and the Bob & Tom Show, regularly heard on XM/Sirius Satellite Radio, and was a regional finalist in Comedy Central's Open Mic Fight. He was the winner of the Golden Shingle Award at the Rooftop Comedy Festival, an award given to the next rising star in comedy.
