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.
Whether he is working with The Amoralists Theatre Company (In the acclaimed hit “Happy in the Poor House”), Angry Shih Tzu Productions or on tour with Stand-Up, Mark continues to climb the ranks. He is a gifted storyteller, with a 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.
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.

Combine the sharpness of the New York observationalist with the charm of an old-school storyteller–add a dominating stage presence with one of the highest laugh-per-minute counts in the business & you have only scratched the surface of this one-of-a-kind performer.
A classic complainer, Richie‘s rants on family, diets, popular music are the type of humor we all have experienced & can relate to. But, his most hard-hitting material is usually reserved for Richiehimself. His stories about being on the set of shows like “Sex & the City” & “The Sopranos”… going to the doctor… or even just trying to drive home from the show will have you roaring with laughter.

SHULI EGAR truly knows that if you’re going to make it in comedy, you’ve got to hustle. His start in stand up began with him bombing every night in nearly empty casinos along the Las Vegas Strip. But in 2002 Shuli’s luck would change. That’s when he met the one and only Howard Stern.
SHULI’s love for The Howard Stern Show started in middle school. He moved to Las Vegas from Los Angeles to start his stand-up career and was a frequent caller to the Stern Show. After seven years of weekly calls, he was invited to play a round of blackjack with Stern and his gang while the show was in Las Vegas. As it happened, he won more than just money gambling at the table that day. Despite having no journalism experience, Shuli was brought on as a correspondent for the Howard 100 News team and has been reporting on all things Howard ever since.
In addition to his work on the Stern Show, Shuli co-hosts The Jay Thomas Show, the Dr. Harry Fisch Show on Sirius XM, and he has contributed to the Scott Ferrall Show and Miserable Men.
SHULI has toured the country as part of “The Killers of Comedy “ and “Ronnie’s Block Party”, and he regularly performs stand-up in clubs all across the U.S.
Take the all American girl next door, add a pinch of devilish charm, a dash of sports fanatic, some raw charisma, sprinkle in kooky, eclectic characters set on high speed and POW! the perfect recipe for comedy.
