COMEDY REEL 2016
A Founding Member of the Second City West Coast Company, Mark opened the Santa Monica shows when the Chicago-based improv/sketch comedy University of Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Steve Carell came West. Performing on stage with Ryan Stiles, Andy Dick, Andrea Martin and Richard Kind paved the way to an eclectic array of comedic guest star roles in iconic TV comedies like; Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Tracey Takes On… and a recurring role on the improvised late night My Talk Show.
On Film, in 2017’s The Babymoon, Mark co-stars as reality TV producer Fabrice Mancini. Also in 2017, Mark will direct the comedy Mr. Mojo from his script. The film shoots in Chicago and features a Blues Music greatest hits soundtrack. Also on tap for 2017, Mark takes a dramatic turn as an LAPD Detective on the trail of a gristly murder in A Cloud So High.
ABC’s The Middle and ABC’s On TV, Mark continues on ABC’s Windy City LIVE where he’s won three consecutive Emmy Awards for his comedic sketches. Recent appearances in Family’s Baby Daddy have added different characters to his menagerie.
Mark’s 2017 main TV event will be the Boffo the Bear show, a hybrid talk/sketch show featuring human guests being interviewed by cartoon comedy legend, Boffo the Bear. The show will be the first cartoon show in TV history to shoot in front of a live studio audience. Recent pilot seasons netted Mark leading roles in; Jason Lee’s Shredd and Bar Car, but unless you’re one of the exec’s who cancelled them, you wouldn’t know that.
