Meet Derrick DeMelo, Brian Martins, Al Sardinha and Jay Casimiro - otherwise knowns as The Portuguese Kids. Hailing from South Eastern Massachusetts, The Portuguese Kids have taken their unique brand of comedy all over the world with shows and viral videos that highlight the funnier side of growing up Portuguese. Starting in 2004 the group began with a single weekend of shows, calling themselves Out of the Gutter Comedy. It was obvious from the get-go that fans identified with the cultural humor and not long after the group decided to change their name. The Portuguese Kids were born. Why call themselves kids when they are all grown men? Well, to their parents, they were always kids and it was a constant reminder that no matter your age, immigrant parents can be a little overprotective! "Have you had dinner?", "You're too skinny", "You're too fat!".
As performers always do, The Portuguese Kids find themselves happiest when they are on stage entertaining audiences all over the world. They have performed to tens of thousands of fans, helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years and they've only just begun! The Portuguese Kids are bridging the gap between generations and cultures and bringing communities together under the same roof with one goal; to make people laugh. You may find them on the Internet or you may find them on the stage, but one thing is for sure...you will find them funny!
