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” and is writing for Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update.

Not only is storytelling an art that throughout time has passed information, life lessons and entertainment from generation to generation, it is one of the oldest art forms celebrated. It is also the best part of the entertainment business. Just ask Mark Riccadonna about when the the show is over. After the place has cleared out, there is no better feeling then bellying up to the bar with your fellow performers, cracking a drink and a smile, while entertaining your fellow entertainers. What he does on stage isn’t what entertains Mark. He loves the stories from the green room, a sparkle in the eye, a drink in hand and a great tale from the road. In “Drinks, Jokes and Storytelling” it Mark’s goal to bring the green room out to the stage and let the audience see behind the scenes of what entertains their entertainment.
