Comedian Derrick Knopsynder

Derrick officially made his start in stand-up comedy after his freshman year in college, and has since become one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh, as well as one of the youngest comedians to regularly feature at his hometown club, The Pittsburgh Improv. As a young comedian, 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 he hits the stage.

Balancing both school and stand-up, Derrick completed his bachelor’s degree in Professional Golf Management and a master’s degree in Science, all while performing 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. Now a recent college graduate, Derrick has won The Stand Up To Cancer Competition in Huntington, WV and was most recently named a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival.
