Derik Bishop and Monica Archuleta have only been doing stand-up comedy for just under a year, and already they've strongly asserted themselves as comics to watch in the Sacramento comedy scene. On this episode of The Junior & Leo Show podcast, the guys get to know more about these two very funny people, as well as a few things they didn't expect. For example, not only are they funny people, mutually chasing the dream of stand-up, but they're also a couple that doesn't really talk comedy when together. Monica is also a mother of two struggling with baby-daddy issues that would render a lesser woman helpless and weak, yet she manages to hit open mics with force on a weekly basis. We also get to learn about their process for joke writing, their best and worst moments on stage, and how they've managed to come up in two very different comedy circles here in town. Give it a listen and see what it's like to be an up-and-comer in the River City comedy scene.
