Derek Furtado is what people say is comic's comedian, meaning he is respected by other comedians. His energy on stage is infectious. He has a passion for what he does and it shows. We recorded two episodes on the day we talked to Derek. The first one was with Maya Manion and Derek came by as we were finishing up. Maya has worked with Derek several times and talks highly of him. He has a strong work ethic. He is constantly working on new material, still doing sets at open mic and showcase nights. He doesn't mind bringing up uncomfortable subjects on stage, but is always able to find the funny. He has collaborated with his friend and fellow comedian Ray Harrington on several projects which have all been successful. He has grasp of the psychology of comedy and we have a really interesting discussion on a few different topics. This was a fun day, two great conversations and we cut our first commercial for the Amazon FireStick.
