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.
After honing his chops at Philadelphia’s premiere comedy club, The Laff House, Clint Coley moved to New York City to embark on his quest to become a full-time comedian. Inspired by legendary greats such as, Chris Rock, and George Carlin, Coley won Amateur Night at the world famous Apollo Theater within months of arriving in the Big City at age 23.
With talent for both comedy and business, Coley went on to organize the All Jokes Aside College Tour, visiting 14 colleges and universities throughout the country including UCLA, University of Maryland and Penn State University. He also produced and headlined Babylon Cartel Presents: Clint Coley’s All Jokes Aside in front of a sold out crowd at the Freedom Theater in his beloved Philadelphia. Coley’s drive got him opening gigs during the Royal Comedy and Mike Epps & Friends tours, landing him on stage with the likes of Sommore, Bruce Bruce, Tony Rock, and Sheryl Underwood.
In September 2011, Coley launched his own comedy series, Chill, It’s Just Jokes at Philadelphia’s Helium Comedy Club. The series quickly expanded to include Los Angeles’ prestigious Hollywood Improv in January 2012. Since then, Coley is the traveling opening act for King of Comedy D.L. Hughley and been crowned “the prince”.
Coley currently has a comedy special on Netflix entitled, “Stand and Deliver”, he tours comedy venues across the country with King of Comedy D.L Hughley and has a stand up comedy album entitled, “I’m An Adult” which is set to release April 29th. Constantly raising the bar, Coley now resides in Los Angeles building on the early successes he’s had in his career. Coley’s distinct storytelling, dramatic punch lines, quick wit and undeniable charisma keep his shows popular attractions across the country.
