Secure The Gag this week is a MASTERCLASS in comedy lead by the charming and funny, Dewayne Perkins (The Amber Ruffin Show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Saved By The Bell, The Break with Michelle Wolf)!!
Nathan and Dewayne discuss Dewayne’s background in sketch comedy with 3Peat, his transition to stand up, and his experience in multiple writers’ rooms. Dewayne also shares about the importance of networking in comedy, how he landed himself as a co-producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and his relationship with the incredible Amber Ruffin. Dewayne is brilliant and this episode is our favorite so far!
Dewayne’s Work That’s Discussed:
