Derek Supple

National Sales Director
Yuk Yuk's On Tour and Funny Business Corporate Events

Derek has performed with Yuk Yuk’s as a comedian since 1994 and took a bit of a twisted path to becoming National Sales Director. Having completed the C.A. Program at McGill, Derek realized accounting wasn’t as exciting as it sounds so, inspired by George Carlin and Steve Martin, he turned to comedy. In 2006, with his touring years behind him, high-lighted by 3 appearances at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Derek started as an agent with Funny Business. Now the National Sales Director, he oversees a dedicated team of agents who will do all they can to help make your event a success!

Derek continues to book comedy shows in Ontario, including fundraisers, hotels, resorts and pubs/restaurants and will work with you to ensure you have the right comedians for your venue.

Tony Krolo

Booking Agent for Corporate Events - Ontario and Canadian Comedy Festivals
