Daryl Makk Bio
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!!
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!!
Daryl Makk was an excellent choice for our company Christmas party….He was punctual and personal….I would not hesitate at asking him to come back and do shows at our company functions.

I wanted to thank you again for an outstanding performance at our volunteer appreciation dinner.We have had many great entertainers at our functions over the years however I have never received so many positive “after the event” comments about a performance as this one.

I had many of my customers come up to me after the show, wiping tears out of their eyes, saying that was the best comedian they had seen…
