Derek Gaines is a California native raised in Philadelphia for the last 12 years. On July 30th 2003, Derek went to his first open mic night at the Laff House in Philadelphia and started what he likes to call the road of the “tainted church boy.” From that open mic, he moved around to Rascal’s Comedy Club, The Improv in Times Square, The Time Square Arts Center, Broadway Club and opened for Bill Bellamy at Caroline’s Comedy Club in Manhattan, NY. Since then he has graced the stages of over 40 colleges and performs actively in the Philadelphia and New York City comedy scene.

Only 20 years old and fresh into the business, Jordan Rock has big shoes to fill being the youngest brother of an absolute legend in the business (Chris Rock). Featured on last season’s Last Comic Standing.
