18-01-2019 12:00:00 19-01-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Dean Edwards Headlines Gotham Comedy Club A talented Actor/Comedian, most people remember Dean Edwards since making his mark in comedy during two successful seasons as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as “Man in Elevator” and “Cop#2”, Dean always pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion. Always the multi-tasker, Dean found the momentum to juggle his SNL career, his numerous standup appearances and multiple television appearances. Dean was one of the stars of MTV2’s hit show, “Guy Code.” He helped the show become one of the networks most successful shows in its history. He also hosted a season of TV One’s clip show, “Vidiots” and served as a correspondent on BET’s new program, “Don’t Sleep,” hosted by TJ Holmes. Edwards has since earned a reputation as a headlining favorite at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. An international sensation, Dean has attended Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival twice and was chosen to perform at the Jozi, Cape Town and Durban Comedy Festival’s in Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban South Africa, as well as Saudi Arabia in late, 2009. More recently, Dean completed a tour of the Middle East, performing in front of more than 10,000 comedy fans: beginning in Cairo, Egypt and ending in Kuwait. He spent 2 years workshopping and creating the character of Donkey, leading up to Dreamworks’ “Shrek the Musical” on Broadway. Jeffrey Katzenberg was so impressed by Dean’s vocal talents that he invited Dean to step into Eddie Murphy’s shoes to reprise the role of Donkey in Dreamworks’ new Halloween classic, “Scared Shrekless.” Some of his feature credits include “Spiderman 3,” “Tony - N - Tina’s Wedding” and “Universal Remote.” Dean’s first comedy CD, “Real Talk with Fake People, Volume 1” debuted at the top of Itunes comedy charts in 2009. As he continues to ascend in the ranks of entertainment, Dean next plans to record a one hour comedy special in the near future. Visit: https://www.facebook.com/iamdeanedwards/.
