Underground Comedy Presents: Monroe Martin & Derek Gaines
Monroe Martin is a rising comedy star who mines his laughs from life experiences such as growing up in foster care and bouncing around from one dysfunctional family to another. With a frank, open approach to storytelling and an engaging personality, Martin effortlessly turns his childhood of hard knock experiences into comedy gold. Monroe has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central’s Adam Devine’s House Party, MTV’s Guy Code, TV Land’s The Jim Gaffigan Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Netflix Master Of None, and AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live.
Derek Gaines is a California-born, New Jersey-based comic with the smile of a thousand angels. Derek was the co-host of MTV's The Broke-Ass Game Show. He’s also appeared on NBC's Will and Grace, and he's a recurring character on TBS's The Last OG with Tracey Morgan. His style of comedy speaks to all from the perspective of a black, can't-be-a-thug, suburbanite, only child.
