A BRUMMIE comedian who was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Festival in 2017 heads to Bromsgrove’s Artrix with his new show on Friday, January 17.
Darren Harriott’s Good Heart Yute, his third solo tour, centres on him turning 30 and never being in love.
He suggests it cannot always be someone else’s fault and speaks about learning more about himself and realising he has maybe never actually been happy with who he is.
As a teenager he joined a gang on the streets of Birmingham, one night they turned on him which landed him in hospital on New Year’s Day.
Reflecting on it Darren said it was possibly one of the best things that had ever happened to him.
He went to college, started acting and got into comedy.
Darren has also appeared on the prestigious ‘Live at the Apollo’ stage having previously worked there as a bouncer on the door while he was building his comedy career.
He has also featured on Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, The Stand Up Sketch Show, Mock the Week, Don’t Hate The Playaz and Comedy Central’s The Comedy Bus and Roast Battle.
The show in the venue’s studio at 7.30pm is suitable for those aged 16 and over.
Tickets, at £12.50, are available by visiting artrix.co.uk or by calling 01527 577330.
