Each month the guys behind The Center City Comedy Podcast host their live stand up showcase. Comedians Derek Gaines, H.Foley, Kevin Ryan, and Andrew Schiavone welcome some of the best comics in New York City for this stand up comedy show.
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.
H. Foley: H. Foley is a comedian and actor who got his start on the Philadelphia comedy scene. He is a guy's guy who pulls his material from his family and friends. Foley fuses personal stories and hilarious observations in a unique, yet relatable, charismatic package. Foley has made a big splash in New York City having appeared on The Artie Lange Podcast, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Netflix's Iron Fist, Gotham Comedy Live, Comedy Central, TBS, TV Land, and AXSTV . He performs all over New York City including The Stand, The Standing Room, Gotham Comedy Club, and New York Comedy Club. He is the host of the popular podcast The Center City Comedy Podcast.
