Mark Anthony

Mark Anthony (yes..that's his real name) grew up Cleveland, OH. As a kid he always wanted to perform as a singer in a rock band, but never had enough confidence in his own voice. So he went into his next love...comedy. As a kid he listened to Redd Foxx and Richard Pryor (when his Mom wasn't around) and imitated the jokes he heard to his friends. As a heavy kid, he learned humor was a good weapon to use to avoid being picked on in school.

Mark gets his material from life, being overweight, being married, growing up in the inner-city, and listening to rock and roll. Mark's mixed bag of sources makes for a refreshingly different, very funny show. Mark has performed in most of the fifty states and Canada in venues from West Point Military Academy to Westward Ho in South Dakota (Don't even ask!) He has showcased at 3 NACA Regional Conferences and the APCA conference. Mark has appeared on Comedy Central and The Black Entertainment Television Network. He is considered to be “too on the edge" for Jay Leno, but "not dirty enough” for Def Jam. When asked to describe his style of comedy, Mark said, "If I were music, I'd be Hootie and the Blowfish."
