Unique Derique

  • Yerba Buena Gardens 799 Howard Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

A beloved Bay Area institution, the Unique Derique is a prince among clowns, an internationally esteemed performer who has honed a singular blend of physical comedy and hambone body percussion. Derique (aka Lance McGee) started clowning in Berkeley at 15 with Circus A La Mode and later joined San Franciscoโ€™s Pickle Family Circus. Heโ€™s also a licensed drama therapist and school counselor who teaches mindfulness. Whether heโ€™s in a park, Harlemโ€™s storied Apollo Theatre, or collaborating with Bobby McFerrin, The Temptations, or the late Sammy Davis Jr., the Unique Derique earns gales of laughter with his wildly imaginative skits.
