What to Expect
A Desperate House Dads show is for all people who love to laugh, can relate to life's many obstacles and see the humour in them. The most common response from audiences after a show, besides the obvious "you guys are hilarious", is that they feel a kindred spirit with Darren and Michael because the stories shared from the stage are real. They speak of personal triumphs and tragedies and find common ground with their audience through the wonderful gift of laughter. It's about overcoming pain, embracing the odd and the wonderful, and celebrating the challenge of living life in our modern world. It's one heck of a funny mess!
After appearing on the same bill at comedy show in 2011, one thing became apparent quickly…these two guys have lived very similar lives. A friendship was forged and it wasn’t long before their first two-man show was booked. It was a massive success and became the foundation of Canadian comedy’s newest dynamic duo, the Desperate House Dads. Both Darren and Michael wear their hearts on their sleeves and their material is very personal, relatable and extremely funny. They have shared the stage with many big name artists, but prefer to share their stories together with audiences all across Southern Ontario and beyond.
Additional Booking Notes
The Desperate House Dads can supply their own lighting and sound for any event, however if in-house versions already exist, that works too!
Typically, the DHD's will set up or assist with setting up the seating so as to maximize viewing enjoyment and to create the right atmosphere for their show.
The thing they require the most is...an audience of people looking for a great night of laughs.
chairs/tables/electricity (haha)/A stage or at minimum, a soap box to stand on
