TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - Hilariously irreverent homegrown comedy star Darcy Michael headlines a sermon where no topic, including gay parenting and casual drug use, is too taboo in CraveTV's first commission of original stand-up comedy, DARCY MICHAEL GOES TO CHURCH. The one-hour special, developed in partnership with Just For Laughs, begins streaming on Friday, March 9 and joins CraveTV's popular Stand-Up Comedy Collection.
As was announced last September, CraveTV, Just For Laughs, and Counterfeit Pictures have partnered to create three original stand-up specials showcasing some of Canada's funniest comedy talents. Darcy Michael, Debra DiGiovanni, and Graham Chittenden hit the stage at Toronto's Berkeley Church during last fall's JFL42 Festival to tape the one-hour specials which mark CraveTV's debut original stand-up specials.
"We're proud to have created the first homegrown comedy specials produced solely for streaming audiences in Canada," said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming, Bell Media. "Kudos to our partners at Just For Laughs for helping us deliver first-rate comedy content to our subscribers."
An engaging presence on the Canadian comedy scene for over 10 years, Darcy Michael has 10 national televised comedy galas under his belt, and appeared opposite Dave Foley on the CTV comedy series SPUN OUT. A two-time Canadian Comedy Award-nominee, Darcy has also appeared on The Comedy Network's MATCH GAME and CBC Radio's The Debaters.
Following DARCY MICHAEL GOES TO CHURCH, DEBRA DIGIOVANNI: HERE'S THE THING streams in April and features the original cat lady and master of fast-talking comedy as she explains her love of otters, male models, and TV shows about murder, GRAHAM CHITTENDEN: RELUCTANT ADULT follows in May and showcases Chittenden as he hilariously laments the responsibilities of adult life.
