What? No Vulgarity, No Cringing, No Embarrassing Situations?
Mark was born in Cape Town in 1974. At 10 years old Mark moved with his family overseas, then back to Durbs, SA - and settled in Cape Town where he now lives with his wife. Mark consistently customizes his comedy to a variety of corporate and show audiences, events ranging from 60 to 4000 people. Mark has done them all. He has worked with such notable companies as the Protea Hotel Group, Ford, iTouchSA and many more. Mark's ability to blend a theme or topic with one of today's funniest comedy routines is unparalleled. His smart, sometimes loud and often opinionated brand of comedy has made him an audience favourite wherever he performs.
Mark combines clean, hilarious humour with inspiration like no other comedian working today. He is grateful to everyone who supports comedy that doesn't make you feel like you stepped in something. With a legal qualification and many years working in the legal and finance world, Mark traded the business world stage for the comedy stage and never looked back.
Mark gets material daily from the perils being newly married, babysitting other people's kids, airport madness, the advances of technology and general social commentary of current headlines. But you are thinking it must be difficult to work clean all the time, right? "Clean comedy is easy. Funny comedy is hard." Mark is both.
