Comedian Darcy Michael spins out offbeat laughs

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      A local who’s enjoying a bit of a rocketlike rise on the Canadian comedy scene, Ladner boy Darcy Michael makes a return to the Comedy MIX from Thursday to Saturday (April 7 to 9) with the approachable, hyperenergized, and offbeat laughs that have won him spots on shows like Spun Out, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and CBC Radio’s The Debaters. At gigs like Just for Laughs, he introduces himself as “your token gay for the evening”, but his jokes land squarely with anyone with a sense of humour. He’ll talk about sex, marriage, and, if you’re lucky, the sleepy side of his semirural hometown.
