PICTOU — Comedian Derek Seguin is taking his one-man standup comedy show Derek Seguin 43.0 on the road again for a national tour and will stop in Pictou as part of the tour.

The tour runs from March 22 to June 16 and will be at the deCoste Perforing Arts Centre on March 23 before heading to Halifax.

Derek Seguin 43.0 delves deep into the challenges of being a single dad in his 40s while living with a girlfriend who has no kids, living in an ever-changing and an all too supercilious world. His Québecois flare and original point of view will make you think, make you re-evaluate, and above all; will have you howling with laughter. Seguin is one of Canada’s fastest rising, most “in demand” comedic voices.

Tour manager, Robert Gallant, is excited to once again hit the road with this stand-up comedy star.

“HubCap Promotions has toured a lot of great shows over the years, and this one will be a show you don’t want to miss. I have seen so many audiences crying and gasping for breath as they laugh at Derek’s show that sometimes I think there should be a medical warning attached to his show.” Gallant has produced tours for Lucien, Nikki Payne, James Mullinger, Jimmy the Janitor, Mike MacDonald and the Hubcap Comedy Revue since 2003 and is confident that this show is sure to be an instant hit.

Based in Montreal, Seguin has performed at every major festival across Canada including the prestigious Just for Laughs festival. He has many television credits to his name from various festivals, but audiences may best recognize his voice from his numerous appearances on CBC Radio’s, “The Debaters” where he has performed close to 30 times plus two episodes of the show on CBC Television. In 2015, Seguin won Sirius XM’s Canada’s Top Comic competition, a contest that spanned the entire country with finalists from every major city. A consummate professional, Seguin is at home on stage in a comedy club, conference centre, theatre, arena, school or arts centre. He tailors his sets for all audiences and can work clean or filthy.
