Comedian Derrick Knopsnyder September 6

Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 6 at 7 p.m. to come see comedian Derrick Knopsnyder's free performance at Sauk Valley Community College’s Mathis Theatre.

Derrick Knopsnyder officially made his start doing stand-up comedy after his first year in college and he never looked back. He is able to use his experiences as a student to entertain college students in a hilarious way. Since then Derrick has become one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh. Derrick uses his boyish charm and quick wit to connect with audiences all over, but it is his awkwardness that keeps them laughing all through the night, making him a fan favorite wherever he takes the stage.

Derrick started out with a dream of being a stand-up comic and has had some success in the comedy industry, such as winning The Stand Up To Cancer Comedy Competition in Huntington WV, and was most recently named a finalist at the Cleveland Comedy Festival.

This is one comic you don’t want to miss! For audiences 16 and older.

For more information about his free act, contact Ana Salgado, student activities coordinator, at 815-835-6432.
