One of Canada’s brightest comedic performers has had an interesting and eventful rise to the comedy stage.
Dominating the Canadian Comedy scene for 10 years, Darcy Michael continues to prove his voice is one like no other. Pegged by the Montreal Gazette as one of their favourites at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival – he has gone on to appear there for 5 consecutive years. With 10 national televised Gala’s as well as his own half hour special on Comedy Network, Darcy is in high demand.
After 2 seasons starring opposite Dave Foley in CTV’s "Spun Out", Darcy released his latest album "Family Highs" which quickly debuted #1. After Spun Out, CTV & Project 10 Productions announced a deal to develop "Darcy," a single-cam sitcom based on Darcy Michael’s life and stand up.
Twice nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award, Darcy’s edgy but personable approach has won him numerous appearances at the Just for Laughs Festival, Comedy Network’s Match Game, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and regular appearances on CBC Radio’s ‘The Debaters.’
After becoming a finalist in the national XM Top Comic Competition, Darcy toured with Russell Peters and after an international search by NBC was chosen as a finalist for the NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity show.
Other exciting projects on the horizon for Darcy includes the films "Rapturepalooza", a hilarious comedy starring Craig Robinson, and the sequel to the Christmas classic "A Christmas Story." Darcy has appeared in many television series and movies including "Gay Dude", "Lloyd the Conqueror", "End Game", "Dairy of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules","Life Unexpected", "The Assistants", "Reaper" and "Numb."
The comedian/actor currently resides in Ladner, BC, with Jeremy, his husband of 12 years and their teenage daughter. If Darcy isn’t on stage or filming, he can probably be found tending to his garden….where he grows "vegetables."
