Bio

On January 7, 1983 Derek Furtado was not only born, but he was born into an opportunity. The 1980’s were arguably the Golden Years for stand-up comedy, launching the stars that would go on to dominate the 90’s.

It was comedians such as Chris Rock, Jim Carey, and Jerry Seinfeld that influenced the humorous persona you see today. It was his ability to make people laugh, that helped him adapt to the life of a military brat, eventually settling in Massachusetts where he began an official career in stand-up comedy.

When Derek first walked on stage, the audience could only say one thing, “Look at this asshole!” But from the very first joke to the end of his set, like many audiences since, he won them over. Sporting a movie star smile and devilish charm, Derek captivates the audience with not only his comedy, but his interaction with the crowd. With his material ranging from his sexual escapades to being assaulted by a senior citizen outside of a bingo parking lot, Derek has a way of appealing to all audiences.

With stops in such acclaimed clubs as Catch a Rising star, The Comedy Studio, Jokers Wild, Comix at Foxwoods, the Comedy Connection, and the Providence Performing Arts Center Theater, he has quickly made his presence known throughout New England comedy. Needless to say, as much as he has accomplished in such a short time, the sky is the limit for this young and talented star!

Over the past 7 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, Myq Kaplan, Bruce Bruce, Bob Marley, Ralphie May and Kevin Hart.
