Mark Knope began his comedy career in the banquet room of the New Chinatown restaurant in Albuquerque, NM; on March 21, 1986 - after bouncing around many open stages while living in such comedy hotspots as Houston, San Francisco and Los Angeles - he made the jump and began touring full-time in September of 1988!
He was in the middle of his divorce when he first hit the stage, coming up with the phrase "BORN-AGAIN BACHELOR" and it became one of his first bits! Over the years, he's been known to "BRING THE HA-HA" with material ricocheting from BREAST IMPLANTS and GOLF to PHYSICAL THERAPY and his disdain for SNOWMOBILES!
A native of Wyandotte, MI, (near Detroit) now residing in Toledo, OH; Mark has been seen on Comedy Central, ABC, FOX-TV and COMCAST.
His first CD, "Don't Laugh...It'll Only Encourage Him" was released in 2000 and has been in regular rotation on XM SATELLITE RADIO. His second CD, “Regular Guy” is set to be released in early 2009 – be sure to check it out!
He's also made several appearances on the nationally syndicated BOB and TOM radio show...
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for this talent - he's energetic, animated, personable and flat-out FUNNY!
