“Derek is new here. Walking along the beach he finds a journal. It belongs to a Unicorn. Within its pages are the innermost thoughts, fears, and fantastical short stories written down by a teenage unicorn trying to find his place in a world not meant for obtuse metaphors.”
Dude…I’m A Unicorn is a one man, multi character, melan-comedy written and starring Canadian comedy import Derek Flores. Relocated from Toronto Derek Flores has had a long career in improvisation and comedic theatre beginning at the age of 16 when he joined world renown improv theatre Loose Moose Theatre Company. He has pursued a life as a street performer, which has evolved into festival MC, continuing as playwright, and most recently as sketch satirist at Toronto’s famed Second City Theatre.
Since moving here Derek has won the New Faces competition and earned himself a nomination as “Best New Comer” at the Wellington Comedy Awards. Ready to take Wellington comedy by storm Flores is excited by his first attempt at a one man show and is eager to showcase his ability for unique whimsical characters, playful story telling, and lonely ‘coming of age’ comedy.
Dude…I’m A Unicorn is one hour journey arm in arm with unicorns, Mexican wrestlers, hot air balloons, wooden puppets, and the whimsy of growing up different.
