With his unique, raw, and colorful perspective, Jamar continues to hone his stand up regularly in various clubs around the country. A club favorite!
As soon as Darren Carter (‘The Party Starter’) takes the stage he unleashes a captivating flurry of impersonations, observations, and off-the-wall social commentary that is a comedy experience unlike any other. Darren’s contagious charm and vivid imagery paints a picture, both relatable and unique. No wonder critics nationwide are calling his act ‘a must see’.

Hip-hop superstar Snoop Dogg spotted Darren Carter on television doing his dead-on impersonation of the rapper, which led to performing multiple times at Snoop’s annual family reunion.
The party doesn’t stop there. After appearing in the summer blockbuster ‘Be Cool’ with John Travolta Darren continues to make appearances regularly on television. Whether it’s Comedy Central, BET, NBC, or E!, Darren appeals to a wide audience. And if you think you are hearing Darren’s voice, don’t worry, you aren’t going crazy!
