Darrell Hammond booking
As a regular on “Saturday Night Live,” Darrell Hammond is best known for the many impressions he brought to the show by television critics and viewers alike for their uncanny accuracy and range. He’s performed as everyone from politicians (Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Rudy Giuliani, and Al Gore), media figures (Ted Koppel, Sam Donaldson, Bob Costas, Phil Donahue) to celebrities (Sean Connery, Jay Leno, and Regis Philbin).
In April 1997, he was applauded in the media for his dead-on impression of President Clinton during a surprise appearance with the President himself at an event before thousands of government officials and members of the Washington Press Corps.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Florida, Darrell Hammond began doing impressions as a child, but his pursuit of a career in performing only began after graduating from the University of Florida in Gainesville. After college, he lived in New York for several years and appeared in off- and off-off-Broadway productions, in both dramatic and comedic roles. Later, he returned to Florida and honed his skills as an impressionist, performing on local and national radio programs.
After leaving “SNL,” Hammond has been performing stand-up comedy and impressions in New York and throughout the country. On film, he has lent his vocal talents to the recent animated version of “The King And I,” and appeared in a number of blockbuster hits such as “Blues Brothers 2000,” “Agent Cody Banks,” and “Scary Movie 3.” On television, he’s appeared on NBC’s “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Hollywood Squares,” and “Comedy on the Road.”
In 2007, Darrell Hammond made his Broadway theater debut in “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” in which he played Vice Principal Douglas Panch. In 2009, Hammond had a guest-starring role on the FX drama “Damages” and also appeared with Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, and Donald Trump in an Oreo cookies commercial, where he impersonated Trump.
In November 2011, Hammond’s both dark and comic memoir “God, If You’re Not Up There, I’m F***ed” was published by HarperCollins. In it, he details his abusive childhood, time spent in psychiatric hospitals, and what it was like behind the scenes of “SNL.” The book also contains reflections on his family, and how his wife and daughter encouraged him in his fight against substance abuse. Hammond is a proud resident of the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan.
