Daryl Makk

Having 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 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!!

Makk understands that comedy can educate and inform and bases his act on truth, reality and things he has experienced. He is constantly booked for corporate and fund raising events when not in the comedy clubs. With an easy-going style he awakens those nagging thoughts we all have about how screwed up the world around us really is. Think of him as dad trying to save you from making a painful life's lesson mistake.

in 2005 his one-hour "Comedy Now" special was chosen to kick off season 8 of this award winning show. It aired on CTV and is in reruns on The Comedy Network. You should see this very comical field trip of truth and reality: The Makk Attakk!!

Dino Archie

Dino Archie started in the Los Angeles comedy scene but his style developed in the living room. Growing up as the youngest boy of 8 he had to get thick skin and a quick delivery. Every Sunday morning he’d watch his grandfather entertain an audience as a preacher but at night he was watching Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor with his brothers. He makes a comedy show feel like living room, and this style has made him one of the freshest internationally touring comics around. His likability allows him to get away with murder on stage, and he takes full advantage of it. You can’t help but enjoy watching someone have so much fun.
