Darryl Sivad is an actor,[1] comedian and photographer.

Sivad was born in Detroit, Michigan to Leon and Elna Davis. After graduating from Mumford High School he went on to attend Wayne State University then the Center for Creative Studies where he studied photography.


He moved to New York City for an apprenticeship with Richard Avedon. He assisted Anthony Barboza and eventually opened Northlight Studio with Kamoigne members C. Daniel Dawson, Ray Francis, Lou Draper and,Herman Howard. An award-winning fine art photographer, Sivad's photography has exhibited nationally and is in the permanent collections of the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Smithsonian Institution.


Sivad broke into stand-up comedy when he signed up for a writing course and they assigned him to a comedy course by mistake. He rose from the ranks of stand-up comedy to be knighted by the king of late night Johnny Carson. Sivad’s first appearance on The Tonight Show landed him the lead role on his own ABC sitcom Homeroom when Carl Reiner informed his son Rob Reiner (who ran Castle Rock Entertainment) about Sivad. Sivad is known as a versatile character actor. He has worked alongside such talents as Will Smith, Jamie Foxx and Hilary Duff.
