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.
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.
Rich Vos
Rich Vos
Best known from NBC's hit reality show "Last Comic Standing," Rich Vos is one of the most exciting and broadest headlining comedians in the country. Back Stage Magazine says of Vos, "He has an uncanny 'Everyman' ability to likeably bond with anyone in the audience…" The excitement of a Rich Vos show stems from his unique, no-holds-barred perspective on relationships, divorce and parenthood. Vos pulls no punches when it comes to comedy. On many occasions, he will deliver some of the quickest crowd banter, leaving audiences not knowing what to expect next.

Vos is a "comic's comic" who is quick, off-the-cuff and appeals to all types of audiences, best represented by his extensive resume of television and radio appearances. He has two Comedy Central Half-Hour Specials and appeared in two other Comedy Central specials. He was a regular guest on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," and has been a regular guest on "The Opie and Anthony Show" for the past 10 years. Vos has appeared on HBO, Showtime, Starz, "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," NBC's "American Dreams" and "The View." He is also a regular on the Joy Behar show, made three appearances at the Apollo, four appearances on BET, and was the first white comic to perform on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam." He also wrote for the 2005 Oscars, and has appeared on and wrote for many roasts.

Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Vos struggled to beat drug and alcohol addictions. He now celebrates his victories on stage with stories about kids, divorce, marriage and recovery. Besides being a proud parent of three beautiful girls, he just celebrated 25 years, clean and sober.

His strength as a live performer comes from years of headlining clubs across the country and performing shows for colleges, corporations and charities. He is inundated with letters of thanks and gratitude for the good work he has done. When he is not on the road, he can be seen regularly at Caroline's and The Comedy Cellar as well as other clubs all over New York City, which he calls home.
Petey DeAbreu
Petey DeAbreu
Repping the streets of the Bronx, NY Petey DeAbreu is a fast-rising star on the New York City comedy scene. He has appeared on TruTv and is a regular at comedy clubs all over NYC. He recognized the power of humor at an early age, using it as a pre-emptive strike to keep from getting into fights at school and around his hood. With his unique view of the world, influenced by comedy legends Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Mike DeStefano, Petey loves to take crowds on unexpected journeys and believes his feel-good style cuts through prejudice and provokes laughter without boundaries.
