Darcy Michael is a Canadian actor and stand-up comedian, best known for his role in the Canadian television sitcom Spun Out.
Nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award in 2010 for his appearance at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, he filmed his own half-hour special for The Comedy Network series Comedy Now! the same year. His career as a comedian significantly took off with his 2012 comedy special One Skinny Bitch, which was released as a direct download and in DVD format. The special, taped at Yuk Yuk's in Toronto, Ontario, centred in part on his experience losing over 120 pounds after a health scare. Around the same time, he also filmed several episodes of a proposed talk show, The Skinny, interviewing guests including Alan Thicke, Caroline Rhea, Judy Gold, David Steinberg and Harland Williams.
In 2014, he was a finalist in Sirius XM Canada's Top Comic competition, and received a second Canadian Comedy Award nomination as Best Breakout Artist.
He has also performed at the Halifax Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs, Calgary Pride, Vancouver Pride and Toronto Pride, appears frequently on the CBC Radio One comedy series The Debaters and the Comedy Network edition of Match Game, and has had several stage roles in theatre productions in Vancouver.
In 2016 Darcy released his latest album "Family Highs" which immediately shot to #1 on Itunes.
Originally from Pickering, Ontario, he is currently based in Ladner, British Columbia. Openly gay, he lives with his husband Jeremy and their daughter.
