Actor Biography

Darren "Whackhead" Simpson is a South African comedian and radio and television personality best known for his morning radio pranks on 94.7 Highveld Stereo, and for co-presenting the M-Net comedy prank show Laugh Out Loud, from 2005-2007.

Born in Durban, Darren got his start in comedy clubs, but quickly progressed onto bigger and better things. He now juggles his time on the Rude Awakening, stand up and corporate events, and television.

Darren has worked as far afield as Australia (at Kool Fm) and Heartbeat FM in London.

In 2003 Darryn appeared on SABC3's Comedy Showcase, and he has also performed in SABC 1's Pure Monate Show.

In 2005 he appeared on the first season of Laugh Out Loud, and continued with the show when it was renewed.

He is also well known for terrorizing unsuspecting victims with his "Whackhead" phone pranks.

In December 2004, 94.7 Highveld Stereo released "The Best of Whackhead's Phone Pranks" on CD, and it remained on the best sellers charts for five weeks and achieved gold status.

In April 2008 he began presenting the M-Net show Clipz, which highlights whacky videos making the rounds on the Internet.
