Comedian Derrick Knopsynder

Derrick officially made his start in stand-up comedy after his freshman year in college, and he is now one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh. Derrick is also one of the youngest comedians to regularly feature at the Pittsburgh Improv, his hometown club. Derrick uses his boyish charm and quick wit to connect with audiences, but it’s his awkwardness that keeps them laughing and makes him a fan favorite wherever and whenever he hits the stage.

Derrick balanced both school and stand-up while completing his bachelor’s degree in Professional Golf Management. He now performs at clubs and colleges all over the east coast with great comedians like Bo Burnham, Dave Coulier, Taylor Williamson, Jon Lovitz, Jon Reep, Greg Warren and more. Derrick has won The Stand Up To Cancer Competition in Huntington, WV and was most recently named a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival.
