“Being able to showcase such a unique and hilarious style of comedy as Eddie B. is something we take a lot of pride in,” says Candice Terrell, Assistant Director of Marketing at DPAC. “Eddie’s niche style of educational humor sets a great example of how we are able to offer ‘Something for Everyone’ here at DPAC.”
While others waited in the wings for a shot at becoming a top standup comic, Eddie soared to new heights by creating his own opportunity with the blockbuster “Teachers Only Comedy Tour”! The “Teachers Only Comedy Tour” has established Eddie as the official voice of teachers across the globe. Educators from America to Africa, Dallas to Dubai, New York to New Delhi (and beyond) are getting a lesson in the funniest ways to express their worst frustrations, and they are loving every second of Eddie B.’s uncensored, raw, and hysterically realistic portrayal of a teacher’s hectic life, from the point of view of an actual teacher!
The phenomenon, which began with a series of videos entitled “What Teachers Really Say” (written, produced, and starring Eddie B.) has tapped into a niche only this multi-faceted comic/teacher can comprehend. Through a rigorous comedic set characterized by original material and accented by physical comedy, Eddie B. says what teachers everywhere are thinking but couldn’t quite say out loud, (until now!). Millions of educators on social media are calling the “Teacher’s Only Comedy Tour” their very own stress reliever and they are filling their favorite venues to capacity eager to hear Eddie B. speak THEIR mind.
