“Years ago, I worked at Kmart before the powerhouse and juggernaut that is Walmart came and knocked everyone out of the box,” says comedian, actor and former Saturday Night Live cast member Dean Edwards. Working at the “blue light” retailer did give him some practical experience for his future career as a stand-up comic, though. “That was one of the places I was allowed to just sit and ponder.” On stage he does a mix of observational material as well as spot-on impressions of various celebrities.
