The 2017 English Comedian of the Year finalist, Darius is a regular performer at all of the major UK comedy clubs and has also toured internationally. With a particular style akin to a performance poet or faith healer, Darius commands his audience with wonderful charisma – an American style comedian with British soul.

A distinct voice in a sea of ubiquity – Darius is fearless in his belief in what is funny and forging his own path. This is high energy, captivating stand up comedy fuelled with passion, soul and wit.

Darius is also the host and co-creator of the hit sell-out Edinburgh show, Hate ‘n’ Live along with fellow comedians Justin Panks and Leo Kearse.
