Derek Gaines
Derek Gaines
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.
Vladimir Caamano
Vladimir Caamano
With the name "Vladimir," few people expect a Dominican from The Bronx to take the stage. His comedic style is the fruit of an immigrant Dominican family living in the cultural mecca that is New York City and is described as an elegant combination of urban grit and intellect. He began polishing his wit in the concrete jungles of The Bronx and Washington Heights and after graduating from Wesleyan University launched into Standup Comedy.

He is an NBC Standup for Diversity Finalist and has been featured on "Gotham Comedy Live" on AXS.TV, Standup 360, ComedyTime and NUVO TV's "Standup and Deliver". Vladimir tours nationally and is a regular in the New York scene performing at the Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, HA Comedy Club and the Comic Strip Live. He is also a Diversity Scholarship Winner at The People's Improv Theater where he is also taking writing courses. Whether discussing his grandfather who fathered 43 kids, traveling to college without luggage, or mimicking his parents struggle to pronounce his name, you will enjoy watching this comedian weave a hilarious fabric of truth and absurdity.

Luz Pazos
Luz Pazos
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!
