Darrell Dennis Biography

At the age of 17, Darrell Dennis walked into his first professional audition and walked out with the lead role of Brian Potter on the hit CBC drama "Northwood". Since that auspicious debut, Darrell has become a respected and multi- faceted Native American (First Nations) actor, writer, and comedian.For over two decades, Darrell has been at the forefront of Native theatre. His one man show "Tales of an Urban Indian" was nominated for two Dora Awards (Best Original Play and Best Performance by an actor). Darrell's feature film adaptation of "Tales" was one of 13 international screenplays to be work shopped at the prestigious Sundance Screenwriters Lab. A television pilot based on "Tales" was also produced and broadcast on the Aboriginal People's Television Network. Darrell recently gave a special performance of "Tales" at the legendary Public Theater in New York City.As an actor, Darrell has gone from classic theatre productions like Shaw's "Arms and the Man", Strindberg's "Miss Julie", and Pinter's "Deceived", to film and television roles like "Leaving Normal" opposite Meg Tilly and Christine Lahti; to the hit TV series "Neon Rider"; to Shania Twain's slick and wealthy lover in "Shania: A life in Eight Albums". However, it wasn't until Darrell won the lead role of Frank Fencepost on the CBC television series "The Rez" that his comedy career flourished. Darrell received a scholarship to train at the world famous "Second City" and became one of the first Native performers to be hired by the Second City National Touring Company. He then co-founded the highly successful all- Native comedy troupe "Tonto's Nephews" which toured Canada and the U.S.In addition to acting and comedy, Darrell is a prolific writer. His first play, "Trickster of Third Avenue East," was produced by Native Earth Performing Arts, which twice named Darrell their "Writer-in- Residence". On APTN, Darrell joined the writing team of the talk/variety show, "Buffalo Tracks" and went on to host the APTN smash hit "Bingo and a Movie." Darrell then wrote a half- hour television pilot called "Moccasin Flats" which was an official selection at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival and was picked up by Showcase Television and APTN for three seasons. Darrell was a key writer on this series.In 2005, Darrell became the comedic Native voice on the CBC Radio series "Spin Off" and the CBC television special "The American Empire". He then co- wrote and hosted the ground breaking CBC radio program "Revision Quest" which ran for four seasons and won numerous awards including the prestigious New York Festival Award. During this time, Darrell's stand- up career flourished and he performed in televised galas at the "Winnipeg Comedy Festival" and the world famous "Just For Laughs Festival".At present, Darrell is writing a book for Douglas & Macintyre Publishing to be released in the fall of 2013. Darrell continues to perform stand up in venues all over L.A. and is developing two T.V. series, a T.V. movie, a feature film, a web series, and a U.S. radio program.
