I started performing stand-up comedy in 2003 after an encounter with Comedian J. Anthony Brown of the popular "Tom Joyner Morning Show". While hanging out with friends, Mr. Brown overheard me telling jokes and asked if I'd ever done comedy, and at the time I had not tried comedy. Mr. Brown immediately encouraged me to give stand-up a try, and I took his advice and haven't looked back. I contacted a local comedian and radio personality named Griff who was hosting an open mic in Atlanta at Café 290. My first time performing was less than five minutes but I was hooked. Eventually, I hosted shows around town. Comedy was my starting point which led me to my ultimate goals of writing, acting and filmmaking.
Like any other new actor, I started my career as a background actor. Others would get discouraged but I used this time to network and plan my next move. In 2008, I decided to stop performing as a comedian and focus on the film and television industry. Not only have I worked in front of the camera, but I have worked behind the camera as a Casting Director, Producer, Production Assistant, and Assistant Director. In 2009, I became a member of SAG-AFTRA after a speaking part in the movie "Lottery Ticket". Recently, I completed writing my autobiography titled "Feel My Pain" as well as a script for the film "Invisible Man". I have had the pleasure of acting in over thirty television and film projects.
My passion in filmmaking is telling life stories via documentaries, short films or feature films. Everyone has an interesting journey that can be shared on film. Click on the video below to view Part 1 of the "Voices Trilogy" entitled "The Talk".

This is part 1 of the Voices Trilogy. I have a talk with my conscience about the guilt that I have over the death of my daughter. My ex-girlfriend aborted our child when she was 6 1/2 months pregnant because I decided to be a comedian against her wishes.
While being treated for unresolved issues from his past, he was diagnosed with cancer. Things got worse when he faced 60 years in prison, dealt with his daughter's death, and was briefly homeless. Everything came down on him at once. Determined to rise above his plight, he started doing comedy, acting, and writing.
"Invisible Man" is the life story of Darryl Moore.
