From Gotham Comedy Live
Mark Riccadonna grew up an artsy jock outside of Youngstown, Ohio. At age 17 (like a bad independent movie), Mark moved to NYC in search of himself and happiness. He pursued Theatre at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, joining “The Company” after graduation. Soon after, Mark stumbled upon Stand-Up Comedy and found success as a storyteller, performing throughout New York City, and ‘on the road’. Mark currently also performs for Armed Forces Entertainment and has entertained U.S. and U.N. Troops worldwide, performing in six continents while working with his childhood heroes. Outside of comedy, Mark is an accomplished actor and writer. Most recently Mark has a lead role in the feature film “Days of Power”, is writing for Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update and shot a Pilot for a new series “Radio Gods”.
This year look out for some of his new Projects- Drinks Jokes and Storytelling Livestream show, Domestic Nomad Podcast, the film Dark State and Devils Tree.
Whether he is working with The Amoralists Theatre Company (In the acclaimed hit “Happy in the Poor House”), Angry Shih Tzu Productions, recording his podcast “I Did That Show” or on tour with Stand-Up, Mark continues to climb the ranks. He is a gifted storyteller, with the charisma that makes you feel like you’ve known him forever, unique delivery, signature voice (that has landed him several commercials) and likability; you will see why he is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere.
