Hi there! I'm Deric Harrington, a comedian of 10 years from the Albany, NY area. During my time as a comic, I've performed all over the country, including the World Famous Improvs in Chicago and Tampa, the Funny Bone in Hartford, and at various colleges and corporate gigs around the country.
I have been voted the top comedian in upstate new york in past years, and continue to build upon that credit with each show.
My rates are competitive within the industry as well. Go ahead inquire, and let's make your show one to remember!
Price Range: (phone number hidden)
Gig Length: 10 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
I bring a 30-60 minute show 1 or 2 person show to your venue, with a sound system if needed (a longer show can be accommodated by bringing having me bring in an additional comedian). The show is for adults. This doesn't mean I do a filthy show, but I do talk about adult subject matter (love life, that sort of thing). I would qualify my show as rated PG-13/R. If you have a language request (keeping it cleaner) I can certainly abide by that, let me know in the initial request.
Most importantly, the show is FUN!
I am a stand up comedian from Albany. To toot my own horn, I would say I am one of the top comedians from the upstate NY/Albany area. Why would I tell you that? Because, I want to make sure your show is a success, and I have the comedic tools and know-how to make that happen.
I've worked up and down the east coast, literally from New Hampshire to Florida, and have gone as far as Minnesota for shows in the past. I have a true love for this business that comes through not only with my act itself, but with my professionalism and desire to make your event the best possible event.
Here's a few places I have performed, for a resume:
The Improv, Chicago, IL, on opening weekend (think about that, a national club wanting to make a big first impression, hired me for that first big weekend)
State University of New York - Albany & Oneonta campuses
The Funny Bone, Hartford, CT
Chip-Inn Casino - Harris, MI
Turning Stone Casino - Onita, NY
The Palace Theater - Syracuse, NY
and many, many more places.
So... Let's make your event one to remember!
