Mark delivers joke after joke, gag after gag, and leaves audiences on their feet with a real, live straightjacket escape. Las Vegas slick and Sunday school proper, alchemist Mark transforms audience participation, one-liners and a few surprises into pure platinum. Mark’s television appearances include VH1 Stand-Up Spotlight, The Rosie ‘O Donnell Show (NBC), Late Night with David Letterman (NBC), A&E True Hollywood Story and Fox T.V.’s Comic Strip Live (Fox). He can also be seen in the film Grown Ups (Adam Sandler).

In addition, he regularly entertains passengers on the Royal Caribbean and Norwegian cruise lines.Mark has “opened” for comedians Rodney Dangerfield, Gilbert Gottfried and David Spade as well as the musical group Crosby, Stills & Nash. He has also toured with country singer Randy Travis. In addition, the USO enlisted Vinnie to entertain troops in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. He is an original member of the “Laughter Company,” an improvisation group that included Rosie ‘O Donnell and Bob Nelson. *Mike Speirs is a tremendously funny comedian whose likeability and quick wit always keeps the crowd engaged and highly entertained. Now in his 30’s, Mike’s life is in a transition phase. This former party boy now finds his hell raising days to be more and more of a distant memory while he deals with the increasing realities and demands of being a full fledged grown up. Mike’s act takes a fresh and honest look at who he is, what he was and what he hopes to become. Whether he is talking about the joy and pain of being a public school teacher, surviving open heart surgery, or just reminiscing about striking out with women while bar-hopping in his former life, one thing is certain…every time Mike takes the stage audiences are sure to be alive, energized and clamoring for more.
