Not your typical female comedian, Emily Galati does not dwell on the differences between men and women or any of the other cliche topics you have come to expect from female comics. Instead, she offers up intelligent and hilarious material, with impeccable timing and a charm rarely seen on the comedy stage. In 2013, Emily was chosen to represent Chicago in the "Best of the Midwest" Competition at Gilda's LaughFest. She has also been a semi-finalist in NBC's Stand Up for Diversity and finalist in the Bob and Tom Comedy Contest.
Emily performs regularly at the legendary Zanies Comedy Club in Chicago and has traveled all over the country to work with national acts such as Jeffery Ross, Gilbert Gottfried, Dwayne Perkins, Jimmy Dore, Jeff Richards, Kyle Kinane, and Matt Braunger. You can also catch her on your television set performing on shows like "The Comedy Thrift Store", "Funny Sundaes" and Comcast OnDemand's Laugh Out Loud.
Emily was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona where she enjoyed sunny days and swimming in December. She currently resides in Chicago, Illinois and misses her pool.
The man with the smile of a thousand angels, Derek Gaines, a California born New Jersey resident, raised a new face in the wonderful art of comedy. July 29th 1984 was the day that the Lindenwold's only campaign began. Derek started in the vicious comedy clubs of Philadelphia and than began to move around the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York) working and still working on what he would like to call the "Left field crusader show", the style of comedy that speaks to all but touches the very hearts of the Black, "can't-be-a-thug suburbanite only children" of the US. Derek trusts and believes God for this gift he has been given and just wants to bring it back for the people. "Progress and not peril" is his motto and he plans to take that with him through every stage of his career.
Perpetually 29 year old Luz Pazos, most likely the next break out Latina comedian is hard to understand…that’s because most people are too busy laughing at her jokes and forget that she has an accent. A former beauty queen from Peru, she is smart…and she can be a smart ass. With two degrees from Italy, she can afford to be. She has won several comedy contests in Los Angeles, has been on the Kroll show and has performed at the Comedy Store,Improv,Laugh Factory as well as many other top venues around America. In addition to Luz being one of the hardest working comedians currently in the business, she also writes sketch. Watch out America,this mama is HOT…funny HOT!
