Derek Gaines
Derek Gaines
Derek Gaines was born in California, but found his comedy chops while growing up in Philadelphia. He currently calls New York City his home where he regularly performs and brings a unique perspective to growing up African American in the suburbs.

Derek’s first break came when he reached the semi-finals of Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes in 2010. Also in 2010 Derek was a finalist in Philadelphia’s Phunniest Person Competition. Derek made his standup comedy television debut in 2014 when he appeared on AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live and was selected by the Just For Laughs Festival as part of their New Faces showcase. Derek has been a contributor to VH1’s Morning Buzz and TRU TV’s Greatest Ever. He starred in Morgan Spurlock’s docuseries “Connected”. Derek is also a cast member of MTV’s Joking Off and the co-host of MTV’s Broke A$$ Game Show.

Derek plays the role of Jaybird in the hit Tracy Morgan’s series THE LAST O.G. for TBS. He was one of the lead roles in the NBC comedy pilot RELATIVELY HAPPY opposite Jane Lynch after coming off a very successful dramatic appearance on ABC’s TRAINING DAY. Derek recently had a break out role on the season’s NBC hit Will & Grace.
Tom Cassidy
Tom Cassidy
Tom Cassidy is a comedian who started in Philadelphia at The Laff House Comedy Club (urban clubs spell things wrong due to the deterioration of the public school system) where he became a feature act 2 weeks before the club shut down. After spending a few years in his native land, which has produced many great comedians (Kevin Hart, Tina Fey and up until recently Bill Cosby) he moved to New York City where he performs regularly at clubs, basements and back of bars that vary in quality. He has been featured at The New York, Boston, Staten Island and Hoboken Comedy Festival (placed in the order of respect each festival gets) and has performed at colleges throughout the east coast in beautiful theaters and fluorescent cafeteria's. In addition to performing literally wherever will have him Tom is also a writer who has directed several sketches and short films, including "Babe Ruth Time Traveler" and it's sequel (you can guess what it's called). Tom is also a co-host on the Center City Comedy podcast where he can be found arguing and making fun of his friends on a weekly basis.
