Simon Cowell said,
“Of all the years we’ve had impressionists on this show, I genuinely think this is the best and most original act we’ve had. Absolutely hilarious Darren, a million percent yes!”
We needed a Jim Bowen sound-a-like to provide the commentary, so we reached out to Alex @greatbritishuk to help. She provided a number of great auditions for us to choose from, but the stand out sound test came from Darren. We did the recording this week. Darren completed over 300 phrases for us, with two takes for each one so we can choose the best. Nothing was too much trouble. Close your eyes and it was as if we were on the set for the TV show with Jim in full flow. Great experience, very pleased with the results, can’t wait for the game to launch. Great British Voices, Alex and Darren come highly recommended. – Andy Beresford, Home Leisure Direct
Darren has always delivered on every session I’ve had with him. Because he has a huge range of voices & characters, I can always guarantee I’ll get exactly what I’m looking for. Darren gets involved massively too, by adding in ideas of how something should come across, but will always take my direction at the same time. He is a friendly, chatty and exciting voiceover, and it’s great to work with him on every project. – Jonathan Young – Commercial Producer for the KMFM network
Bluedog used Darren as Voice Of God for The Heathrow Airport Retailers Awards Ceremony and were so impressed, we asked him back the following year! What we love about Darren is his flexibility in terms of the style of reads he can deliver. He’s always quick to respond to our demands, polite and great with clients. We have also used him to voice several of our videos. I can highly recommend Darren both as a voiceover artist and Voice Of God for your live event. – Nick King – CEO & Founder, Bluedog
Darren is a great voiceover and no matter what style you’re after, he can deliver. Not only a great voice but also a genuinely nice chap to work with. He’s always happy to demo scripts for us and it’s a pleasure to work with him. – Tom Ellis – Producer UKRD Network
