Derek Flores (Calgary/Toronto)
Born in Calgary, the suburban heart of the Rocky Mountains, Derek Flores cut his improv teeth under the watchful eye of the creator of Theatresports, Keith Johnstone, while at Loose Moose Theatre. Two years into a theatre degree at university, Derek heeded the call of the wild and for almost a decade became a travelling comedian plying his trade as a street performer, stand-up, playwright, cabaret m.c, and perpetually an improviser.

Having spent a great deal of time in Australia, at the Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival, Derek has also dusted his boots with the sand of New Zealand, Singapore, Edinburgh, and across the U.S. and Canada. Derek has performed for trillions of people with his comedy troupe The 3 Canadians and his impro cabaret duo Hot Nuts & Popcorn. He has now made his home in Toronto as a mainstage performer with the Second City.
