AUSTRALIAN EVENT AWARDS ‘ENTERTAINER OF THE YEAR’ - THE BEST VALUE MC/ PERFORMER IN AUSTRALIA
A successful international keynote speaker, a serial entertainment entrepreneur and Music Theatre Star, Darryl is also a multi-awarded performer who has been wowing corporate, theatrical and event audiences for over 20 years. A skillful MC who can also perform a diverse repertoire from opera to musical showstoppers and contemporary classics has quickly become one of the most sought after event hosts in Australia.
As an MC, Darryl takes the stage singing “The Toreador” song from the opera Carmen. A dynamic, uplifting and surprising way to start the evening, this immediately signals to guests that they are in for something different! He then assumes official MC duties and later performs a solo show that can range from 1-2 songs to his renowned 25 minute feature act.
