Career Edit


In 2011 Jarrett began performing comedy at local comedy clubs. After the overnight success of his "Yo, I'm From Windsor Dude" song Jarrett began incorporating music into his stand-up act.[10] Jarrett's act revolves around self-deprecation, satire and wordplay.[11]


Jarrett's musical career began in 2011 with the release of "Yo, I'm From Windsor Dude". Jarrett says he was just experimenting with recording equipment for the first time and didn't anticipate the overnight success of the video, so he took 3 years off to learn how to properly record music.[12] On April 20, 2014 Jarrett returned to making music with the release of his EP Jarrett Sorko 4 Mayor.[13] The EP cleverly combines both music and comedy through rap songs and skits.
