DERRICK KNOPSNYDER – Feature
Derrick Knopsnyder officially made his start doing standup comedy after his freshman year in college, at the age of 19, and he never looked back. Since then Derrick has become one of the fastest rising comedians in Pittsburgh, and is the youngest comedian to be a regular feature act at his home club, the Pittsburgh Improv.
Being a young comedian, Derrick uses his boyish charm and quick wit to connect with audiences all over, but it’s his awkwardness that keeps them laughing all through the night, making him a fan favorite wherever he takes the stage. In 2010, Derrick started out with a dream of being a standup comic, and four short years later he’s living that dream. Since then he 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.

IRWIN LORING – Host.
Irwin was the Featured comid in November and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. His comedy revolves around his family, relationships, religion, and society in general. He was raised in a farming community in upstate New York, by a single Jewish mother household. He blames his mother for his bizarre views on parenting, and his overall outlook on life. He brings an energy to the room that makes audiences laugh wherever he performs. His style can be described as a mix of David Brenner and George Carlin, with a touch of Don Rickles.
