Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career he co-starred in two independent films Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies and Joanie Loves Furbies. After his performances in those two films there wasn't a person who didn't know his name. He did more films, some commercials and some theater but it wasn't enough. Mark needed that instant connection. So he began his stand-up comedy career. In Marks comedy routine he melds observational humor, one liners, family humor, and humorous original songs with guitar accompaniment together, to create his own unique style of comedy. He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states including Nevada, California, and New York. Mark hopes to do a film in the future people have actually seen.
