Comedy Night – Mark Poolos

April 20, 7 p.m.

Free comedy show. Tonight’s featured comedian is Mark Poolos.

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. Mark is 6’7″ and 350, technically a giant but a bumbling one. In Mark’s routine he weaves real stories about life as a jolly giant and a very unique point of view at life to create his own style of comedy. Mark is a true road dog performing in 44 states and 5 provinces in Canada. Mark has been on WGN America, XM/Sirus Satellite radio, The Bob and Tom Show, and won the 2011 Comcast Trial by Laughter. Mark will soon release his third full-length comedy album.
