BIO

Dominating the Comedy scene for close to 15 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 7 consecutive years. With 10 national televised festival Gala appearances in 2018 Just for Laughs partnered with Bell Media and Darcy Michael to film their first ever 1 hour stand up special called “Darcy Michael Goes to Church” available for streaming now on Crave.ca.

Starring opposite Dave Foley in CTV’s “Spun Out” for two seasons, Darcy followed that up with 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.‘

A finalist in the national XM Top Comic Competition, Darcy went on to tour with Russell Peters and after an international search by NBC was chosen as a finalist for the NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity show.

The comedian/actor currently resides in Ladner, BC, with Jeremy, his husband of 14 years and their daughter. If Darcy isn’t on stage or filming, he can probably be found tending to his garden…where he grows “vegetables.”
