Dave has appeared with Brent Morin of NBC’s “Undateable’, opened for Late Night with David Letterman regular Eddie Brill and New England Comedy Legend, Steve Sweeny, as well as national headliner Bobbie Collins. Currently through Dave Sinclair Funny Productions he runs and hosts a weekly open mic at Mikey B’s in New Bedford, MA.

Derek Furtado is a 6 time finalist of the Catch a New Rising Star Competition, 2012’s Last Comix Standing Winner and writer of the Best Film in the 48 Hour Providence Film Festival 2012. Over the years Derek has been able to share the stage with such known comics as Otto and George, Robert Kelly, Donald Glover, April Macie, Patrice O’Neal, Craig Gass, Jo Koy, Gary Gulman, Dennis Blair, Mike Bonner, Myq Kaplan, Bruce Bruce, Arnez J, Tommy Davidson, Bob Marley, Billy Wayne Davis, Ralphie May and Kevin Hart. A contagiously energetic comedian from New England who has performed from one coast to the other. Derek’s style of comedy brings uncomfortable moments to life with his attention to detail that will have you relieved you’re not the only one who feels “that way.” His honest humor and ability to reflect mannerisms back to the world around him comes from Derek’s childhood growing up across the country on military bases. The perpetual first impression upon meeting new people has given Derek an uncanny ability to point out the quirks in us all.

Mike McCarthy has earned his nickname “The Comedy Barbarian” with his high energy, balls to the wall style of comedy. Mike got his start at Boston’s legendary Comedy Connection in 1987, and within a year won the WBRU Funniest Man in Rhode Island contest. He has appeared on The Showtime network and Comedy Central and has toured up and down the east coast from Montreal to The Bahamas, honing his craft to razor sharp perfection. The Boston Globe called him “An Irish hurricane of hilarity” and he has developed a reputation as a true crowd slayer. Some comics make you laugh; Mike McCarthy will make you laugh until you cry.
