Bromance is in the air on this tour as fellow Montreal comic Abdul Butt hits the road with Derek to warm up the crowds on the majority of the tour’s stops.

Recently Abdul was hand-picked at the Just For Laughs Festival by Kevin Hart for his new “Laugh Out Loud” network in collaboration with Lionsgate Films. The National Post quoted the former premier of Quebec saying, “He’s crazy.” There’s nothing two long time buddies like more than to share a pint with their audiences!

Frequent headliner for Yuk Yuks across Canada, Tim is a versatile and experienced comedian who has entertained audiences all over the world.
