Special Event: Darren Brand

Darren Brand, affectionately known as 'Big Baby', is a decorated comedian, actor, and all around entertainer with roots stemming deep in the Carolinas. Born in Southern Pines, Brand ventured 80 miles north of his hometown to attend North Carolina A&T State University where he quickly established himself as the ‘funny man on campus’. His career in stand-up began during college when he co-founded the Freestyle Funny Comedy Show (FFCS), a nationally recognized live improv tour, with his comedic comrades: Anthony Bean (Chico Bean), Brian McLaughlin (BDaht) and DeMar Rankin, Sr. (OsamaBinDrankin).

Big Baby continues to create a household name for himself by spreading laughter and joy to fans across the country and throughout the globe. After graduating from A&T, Brand went on to pursue his dreams of bringing his talents to the television screen. A series of successful auditions and callbacks led Brand to his calling; landing a coveted position on MTV’s hit series ‘Wild’N Out’ for over six seasons.

The self-proclaimed ‘Energy God’ has utilized his platform to open doors for many industry opportunities to follow including writing as a TRL contributor, hosting at the BET (pre- and Social) Awards and more. Brand secured his first national commercial project with McDonalds in 2018 and is currently starring in two MTV digital content series Basic to Bougie with Wild’N Out co-stars Timothy Delaghetto and Justina Valentine, as well as Next Big Dance Move featuring fellow judges funnyman Emmanuel Hudson and choreographer Dana Alexa .
