Mark Schiff’s mother when he was 6 took him into Manhattan every weekend for singing and ballet lessons. When Mark returned to school each Monday and showed his fellow Bronx classmates what he had learned, the class would gather around and beat him up. Mark’s mother smartened up and enrolled him in karate lessons, but those came to a halt when the karate teacher beat him up.When Mark was twelve, his parents took him to a nightclub. There, live on stage was Rodney Dangerfield doing his act. At that moment, he knew the path he had to follow. Mark has headlined in all the major casinos and clubs across the country and has appeared many times on both The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with David Letterman. He has had both HBO and Showtime specials, and has been the featured act at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Mark has also appeared live with Jay Leno and has been touring with Jerry Seinfeld for the last seven years. Perhaps Mark’s greatest gift besides being hysterical is his ability to stay current without resorting to foul language that is so rampant today. After each show, people always say to Mark “it’s refreshing to see someone that does not have to resort to four letter words”.
