Darcy Waite

Comedy writer and producer Darcy Waite shares the highs and lows of being a comedian, from bombing a stand-up gig to becoming the hilarious, energetic host of APTN’s That’s AWSM! Darcy addresses the importance of diversity on set, and the perspective he brings to his role as a board member with the Canadian Media Producers Association.
“Find what drives you, once you find that – it doesn’t matter if it gets hard. It’s always fun.”
Darcy's feature film, Ruthless Souls - produced through the Telefilm Talent to Watch program - premiered at imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival in 2019 and was part of Telefilm’s Canadian Perspectives Program in Berlinale in 2020.

Darcy is an alumnus of CBC New Indigenous Voices, NSI IndigiDocs and NSI Art of Business Management – Indigenous Edition.
