Mark Riley was born and raised in Boston and is one of the top headlining acts in New England. A veteran comedian of 18 years, his unique perspective on everyday situations combined with his sharp observational humor keeps audiences in stitches. His ability to improve is second to none and is fearless when it comes to hecklers or anyone who thinks they can be funnier than the comedian. Mark can perform anywhere and for any audience and provide a great show. Whether you are looking for a clean show, PG, PG-13, or R rated, Mark can deliver.
Mark is able to connect with audiences in a unique way. Many people have said they felt like they were sitting in their living room hanging out with one of their friends when they see him perform. People love the way he can incorporate them into his show with ease and can adapt to any situation that may arise. Mark's diverse background of experiences and employment allow him to relate to anyone, no matter what they do for a living or where they are from. He has three kids, all teenagers, so he relates to parents really well. One interesting fact is that Mark has been to 45 of the 50 states.
Mark developed many of his comedic and acting talents in various coliseums and "ice barns" throughout the country while he traveled as a professional ice hockey referee. Mark was an employee of the NHL for one whole week. Yeah, he was hired then fired one week later. It was at that moment Mark realized he belonged on stage rather than the ice. Mark still referees on occasion, but he now focuses his attention to coaching both boys and girls hockey where he gets plenty of material for his shows. He also ran a Gymboree Play and Music franchise for four years, along with cleaning houses, pall-bearing at funerals, and a bunch of other jobs. Mark currently is a teacher. Yes a school teacher, but he'll tell you about that in his act.
Mark has co-authored a movie script called Penalty Box, based on his life as a hockey referee. He is also in the process of publishing his first book, Not Every Kid Should Get A Trophy.
Mark also has plenty of acting experience, starring in multiple commercials and has appeared on NESN and Dirty Water TV. Don't let his Boston accent fool you, he can adapt to play any roll.
Mark has also worked as an Auctioneer. He has done too many auctions to list. His quick wit and ability to keep an audience's attention has helped raise a lot of money for various charities and organizations.
