Things seem to be going great for Darren Harriott but he is 30 now and has never been in love… maybe he’s the problem? He considers himself to have a good heart, but it can’t always be someone else’s fault. Can it? He has spent the last year learning more about himself and realising maybe he’s never actually been happy with who is.
Join Darren for an hour of his trademark passion and insightful wit as he tries to work himself out.
Good Heart Yute is Darren Harriott’s third solo show following 2017’s Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominated Defiant and 2018’s smash-hit Visceral. Last year saw him embark on his first mini-tour as well as flying over to Australia to perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as part of New Order.
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. Darren thinks this is possibly one of the best things that has ever happened to him. He went to college, started acting and got into comedy. Since then his TV credits include Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, The Apprentice You’re Fired, University Challenge for Comic Relief, Hypothetical, a team regular in Don’t Hate The Playaz which has been nominated for a RTS award, as well two Comedy Central Roasts,a Stand Up SpecialandThe Comedy Bus travelogue.
While he filmed Live At The Apollo he was also working as a bouncer on the door at the venue, not on the same night though! But the head of security did think he’d got his shifts mixed up…
He has been heard across the radio as well on BBC 4 Extra Stands Up (BBC Radio 4 Extra), Best of the Fest, The Now Show (both BBC Radio 4) and Fighting Talk (Radio 5 Live). His BBC Radio 4seriesBlack Label comes out this summer, as well as his very own Comedy Central stand-up special in June!
