About Vendor

Imagine you only had use of one arm. Imagine everything you owned fit into a carry-on bag. Imagine only having 7 shirts, each with a day of the week written on them. Well, meet Derrick Tennant. Derrick suffered a life altering brain injury that ended a promising sports career, but it certainly didn't slow down his LIFE. Unable to use much of the left side of his body, he still managed to compete internationally playing basketball. Derrick incorporates his disability into his jokes at the club and to his message of changing obstacles into opportunities in corporate presentations worldwide. Clean, Inspirational and actually funny. This is a combination that is tough to find. Derrick makes a living making people laugh and often inspires them along the way. Whether online with Zoom or in person from the stage, your audience will be moved. From entertaining at an A-list comedy club on Friday night to a Saturday afternoon magic show at the Children's hospital or speaking at Sunday morning service, Derrick is pretty versatile. You've seen him on The Mike Huckabee Show, DRYBAR Comedy, PUREFLIX and more. A gifted communicator, Derrick will capture your audience's attention and get the message across too. As an accomplished magician, he can add even more value to your event by creating smiles and "wows" at the cocktail hour or even after an event. For an additional, LIFE CHANGING event ask about adding Derrick's beautiful sister Julie and discover THE LOVE CHROMOSOME ( see video ) Derrick has worked and traveled with comics like Ron White, Jon Reep, Kathleen Madigan, John Lovitz andTim Hawkins.

He is featured on DRYBAR Comedy, The Mike Huckabee Show and even in a JEFF FOXWORTHY movie where he plays a one-armed softball player named get this: "Lefty". Don't get excited he says though "I was a featured extra, that's kinda like getting an F+" A minimalist, Derrick has no house or apartment. All of his possessions actually fit in one carry-on.

FundraiserReviewed on April 26, 2022From Albany, GA

We have held several years of comedic fundraisers. Derrick was far best of all that we have had! He researched and personalized the event for our organization, mission and the community that we serve. He did not leave a rock unturned and literally had people hanging on his every word up until the very end. We will definitely be asking him back ??

CelebrationReviewed on February 7, 2022From Lantzville, BC

Derrick and Julie spoke to a mixed crowd of school support staff - EAs, custodians, clerical staff, bus drivers, youth care workers - their message of leading with kindness and love was well appreciated and delivered with humour. It was a perfect start to our pro-d event.
