Derek Gaines is best known as the host of the MTV pop-game show, “Broke Ass Game Show,” in which he quizzes unsuspecting contestants on the streets of New York — after which, most often, hilarity ensues. But he’s also one of standup comedy’s most rapidly rising stars. With a strong voice and unique perspective, his riffs on race and culture are as sharp as they are hilarious. As result, he’s graced some of the most prestigious stages in the land, including the Just for Laugh Festival in Montreal, Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes competition and Philadelphia’s Funniest Person. He’ll be at the Vermont Comedy Club in Burlington for two shows each night this Friday and Saturday, December 11 and 12.
