Daryn Jones
Daryn Jones became a staple of Canadian television in 2006 when he took on the role of host and creative producer of MTV Canada's flagship series MTV Live. During his six years on MTV he became known for his sharp wit and infectious energy. While there, he had the opportunity to interview a variety of newsworthy guests including Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal, Weird Al Yankovic, Adele and Quentin Tarantino.

Born in Victoria, BC, Daryn began his career in stand-up comedy clubs at the age of 17. After establishing himself in Toronto, he partnered with comedian Mista Mo to create and co-host the award-winning comedy series Buzz. Originally airing on the Rogers Community Television in the mid-ninties, Buzz was picked up by the Comedy Network where Daryn's wry humour and guerilla-style attack comedy found a burgeoning fan base. The show ran on Comedy Network from 2000 to 2005, garnering Daryn a Gemini Award for Best Writing of a Comedy Series in 2001.

In 2004, before the end of Buzz, Daryn joined the Rick Mercer Report as a writer and on-air correspondent. After a 6 year run at MTV, he was named as host of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber's Over The Rainbow, the live, national search for Dorothy that aired on CBC Television in the 2012-13 season. After the conclusion of the show, Jones made regular appearances on Hockey Night in Canada for its 60th season. In 2014, Daryn's wealth of experience as a host and quick-on-his-feet humour made him an exciting addition as host of season two of Donut Showdown on Food Network and The Cooking Channel.

As well, Daryn continues to tour the country with "Daryn Jones Live", his hilarious interactive live comedy show.
