Darren Whackhead Simpson is one of South Africa ‘s most sought after stand-up comedians, doing live performances to packed venues around the country.

Darren is also hugely popular for his performances at corporate functions, entertaining manager and employee alike.

Through his work on 94.7s “Rude Awakening” with Jeremy Mansfield, Darren has become known for his telephone pranks and has recently taken to the small screen with Jeremy where he co -hosts M-nets all South African comedy series “Laugh Out Loud”.

He is one of South Africa’s most prominent commercial broadcasters, having hosted 947’s Breakfast Xpress for 7 years, and featuring on the breakfast show for 7 years before that,” the station said in a statement on Friday.

“He’s won numerous awards including multiple nods for ‘Best local radio personality’ in the Best of Joburg Awards.

Darren Whackhead Simpson achieved national fame through his notorious “Whackhead” pranks, which hit record sales year after year and have totaled over half a million units sold.

The pranks also featured on KFM breakfast so there is an existing connection between Darren and the Western Cape audience,”

KFM said that Darren Whackhead Simpson would take over the breakfast show from July – and that there would be a daily prank.

“This is a dream come true for me and my family.

To do the breakfast show on KFM in Africa’s most beautiful city, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am incredibly excited,” said Simpson

Joburgers will still get their fix as Simpson would broadcast his Xpress Drive show on 947 from Cape Town’s PRIMEDIA studios.
