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'. . Based out of New York, Mark is like the Johnny Cash song but global. He has played everywhere in the country and around the world, Mark has the charisma and is a gifted storyteller who can transform a crowd into an audience. The minute Mark gets on stage, you’ll laugh and feel like you've known him forever. His unique delivery and voice combined with his likeability on stage and off made Mark into a favorite in clubs and theatres everywhere. Mark currently 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. Mark has worked with General Electric Brain Trust, Stand Down Philadelphia and USMVMC "Ride For Our Lives", Shop Rite and Lego.
