- Host of Daren Streblow Comedy Show
Daren Streblow is an American stand-up comedian with aunique style of observational stand-up comedy . He was born in Ely, Minnesota on January 5, 1971. As a child, Daren’s overactive imagination often got him into trouble. His interests at that age included lighting fires in his neighbors’ basement, shooting arrows at unlucky passersby, and jumping into moving traffic while dressed as Superman. Unlike a lot of comedians, Daren denies he ever had a reputation as a class clown. In school, Daren’s classmates didn’t always understand his jokes. His serious, offbeat humor appealed more to his teachers than to his peers.
During his teenage years, Daren worked a part-time job at a radio station in Duluth, Minnesota. Though originally urged into the job by his mother, who thought her son needed an outlet for his unrelenting creativity, Daren ended up falling in love with radio. He went on to study communications at the University of Minnesota. Initially Daren expected to pursue a lifelong radio career, but felt compelled to give comedy a try, and began his stand up career in 1995. Comedian Brad Stine, one of Daren’s earliest influences, encouraged him to participate in open mic nights. Daren would often drive over two hours to perform at open mic nights in Minneapolis. His set would take five to ten minutes, and then he would drive home again.
After gaining popularity through open mic nights, Daren was able to support himself with his comedy. In 1998, he achieved his dream and became a full time comedian. Daren has since had a remarkable career, opening for big names such as Weird Al Yankovic, Brad Stine, and James Gregory. He has worked for a plethora of different companies, including Disney Cruise Line, Universal Studios, and the ACME Comedy Company. Since Daren is a “clean” comic, he is often asked to perform at churches, fundraisers, and universities.
Daren considers himself an “outreach” comedian, though he does not discuss his religious beliefs during his bits. He typically focuses on awkward everyday scenarios that his audience can relate to. He takes the mundane, filters it through his unique take on life and draws comedy out of it. Though his style has earned him the nickname “The King of Uncool,” his growing popularity in the comedy world suggests he is anything but. Since he stepped onto the scene in 1995, Daren has been able to entertain hundreds of thousands of people all across the country.
Recently, Daren was able to combine his current love with his previous passion by taking his comedy to the airwaves. In 2011, Daren joined up with Media Outfitters Inc. to launch “The Daren Streblow Comedy Show.” The show airs weekly in over fifty markets, both domestic and overseas, allowing people all over the world to get a dose of Daren’s sophisticated yet wacky style of comedy.

Daren was very professional and the owner of the company especially liked his clean humor.
I was blown away by Daren both on and off stage. So very funny. And I was equally impressed with his humility and kindness. He showed interest in the organization and gratefulness to be a part of the event. We loved having him!
Great dude, really funny, and very professional.
Daren perform at our dream team party this past Friday. Our event caters to ages 13 and up, and Daren lived up to his reputation as a family friendly comedian.
There wasn't a dry eye in the place because of how funny Daren was! This is a memory we will never forget!
His performance was top notch from start to finish. His prepared material of course was great, but it was the spontaneous improv interaction with the audience that was the highlight and had people rolling!
Daren did an awesome job engaging people of all ages. I was very impressed with his performance, as well as his relaxed, personable demeanor. I thought the night was a huge success!
Daren did great, provided great comic relief to a long day. Yes he was funny and yes we look forward to working together again soon. It is a pleasure knowing someone of his character and heart.
