Daryl Makk had a father that worked for a company that kept moving the family around, created a nomadic childhood for Daryl. In 12 years of public school he was bounced around to 8 different educational institutions. This forced him to learn to react quickly to new environments…perfect training for a stand-up comic in the making. Daryl Makk managed to maintain an “A” student status which, combined with being a skinny youth, he found that being a class clown kept the bullies from beating up the new kid. This ability was a gift that seemed to come natural for him so it only seemed fitting he would end up in the world of stand-up comedy. Fast-forward many years and Daryl Makk is re-educating the sheeple of the world…one joke at a time and has (professionally) since 1993! He has also grown to a 6 foot 3 inch comedian that doesn’t hold back. No one bullies Daddy Makk anymore and his humor is his weapon which he delivers with precision yet in a very likeable manor!!
With over half of his life dedicated to performing comedy, it’s easy to see why the stage seems like such a natural environment to Brendan McKeigan. After performing and teaching improv for seven years, Brendan made the move to stand up comedy in 2003 and has never looked back; Appearing on XM Satellite radio, Much More Music, CBC’s Laugh Out Loud, Bite TV, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight, and more. He has performed at the 1000 Islands Comedy Festival, The LOL Sudbury Comedy Festival to sold out audiences and standing ovations three years in a row, as well as The Cracking Up The Capital Festival’s closing gala for 2300 people at the National Arts Centre . Brendan’s act also won him a performance at Montreal’s coveted Just For Laughs, “Homegrown Comic Competition,” where he received rave reviews from the audience and his peers alike. He also filmed his first comedy special in November of 2013 called, “Make It A Double.” Brendan’s intriguing high energy, laid back, free-flowing style with clever story telling and creative analogies prove why he’s more observant than your creepy neighbour, why people are talking about his impressive talent, and why he isn’t the “next anyone”, he’s the first Brendan McKeigan.
