About me:.... Hey there. My name is Darryl, what’s yours? I’m a stand-up comic originally from Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Canada. But now I live in California...the other "CA". In between I lived in Toronto for 7 years and New York City for 1 year. Basically all that means is that I’m getting old.
I’ve been on tv, I’ve been on the radio. No, I’m not rich and famous. Although once at a bar in NYC a girl asked me if I was somebody famous. So maybe I am famous and don’t know it. Although I’m sure that I’m not rich.

little known facts about Darryl Purvis:
-though he has never read the Bible, like most comedians, he considers himself to be an expert on the subject
-as a child, he was actually taken from his parents by Children’s Aid and given to a pack of wolves. After a few weeks being raised by the wolves, he was given back to his parents only after it was discovered that his commute to school would be shorter.
-was the last ever draft pick of the NHL’s California Golden Seals. After it was discovered that he couldn’t skate, the team was disbanded. Sadly, the team folded just days before one of their most beloved annual promotions, the wildly popular "Club 2 Baby Seals To Death And Get A Free Small Pepsi Night".

GeneralI really enjoy playing cribbage. Cheering on the Leafs and Blue Jays. Making people laugh. Drinking a cold Keiths or Schooner. Hangin' at a dive bar until the "cool" people find it. But when I'm not doing those things I'm usually thinking about my unmet potential...while eating carrot cake.
MoviesSlapshot, Tommy Boy, Dazed and Confused, American Pimp, Monster's Ball...for that one scene, and you know which scene I'm talking about, 40 Year Old Virgin, The Graduate, Blackula, Caddyshack, Swingers, Badnews Bears, Napoleon Dynamite, Youngblood, and Garden State - probably the best non-hockey movie ever
BooksMy friend Mark Smith in Antigonish thinks I don't read but I do and some books I really enjoyed were Slaughterhouse 5, Money Ball, About A Boy, Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Gretzky, The Game, Our Guys, The Great Gatsby, other books begining with the letter G, and I on World 2004 (www.nileseguin.com), right now The Kite Runner is sitting on my table but I have not started it yet.
HeroesThe Littlest Hobo used to be my hero, until I found out that he was just an actor and not a real hero...too bad, the world needs more dogs like him. Sooo, I guess I'm gonna have to go with Tony Danza...nobody ever accused him of being an actor ..............
