Client testimonials

Fantastic, everyone laughed until they were in tears. All our staff were saying how great he was, another department of NRMA is going to book Darren for one of their staff functions.


Darren Carr is one of the funniest people I’ve ever seen. Are you sure we don’t owe you extra for the great fun he provided.

Dick Smith Electronics

Darren Carr proved an excellent MC for our function. His comedy material was very well received and the idea of using his alter ego dummy as part of a double act to MC the Awards presentation gave it a light-hearted touch while still keeping everything on track.

He was by far the funniest, most entertaining comedian/entertainer that we have had for our awards program. We have received the best feedback from attendees on the night and hopefully we can get him back next year.

Darren scored an average of 8.30 (out of 10) in our recent survey.  He was extremely funny with some people saying that he was the best comedian they have every seen.  I know I laughed so much my cheeks hurt.
