I love Southern culture and if you haven’t heard of Darren Knight, aka Southern Momma, I want to introduce you one of the latest video stars of Facebook and YouTube. Darren, who hails from Munford, Alabama, was working in loss prevention at Sears and decided one day to imitate a Southern Momma “Takin’ em kids to JC Penny.” His source for his parody was his Southern mother and grandmother. The rest is history.
Overnight, Darren became an internet sensation with his videos and is now touring the country with his comedy show. First Daughter introduced me to Southern Momma so when we learned Darren was coming to the Pour House Music Hall in Raleigh, NC, we purchased tickets. What a blast! We and the other fans enjoyed a sold out show by this humble and kind comedian who insisted he would stay until everyone who wanted a picture with him had one taken. We purchased T-shirts. Mine has a picture of Darren saying, ” Hey “Hun!” First Daughter’s says, “Cut em eyes at me one more time. Cut em.” Here we are below with our new friend.
One of my favorite videos is Southern Momma’s recent take on Pokemon. Another is Southern Momma at the Ballfield. For all the videos simply go to YouTube and search for Darren Knight Southern Momma. Or go to Darren Knight on Facebook. Warning; Not for children!
Let’s just say that First Daughter and I think he is cute and precious. And as Southern Momma would say, “Bless it.”
