Having headlined and emceed all of the major comedy clubs around Australia as well as regular corporate engagements and cruise ship bookings, Mark has comfortably become known as “One of the most reliable comedians in the business.”
As a story teller Mark can keep an audience enthralled as he peppers them with punchline after punchline littered throughout real life true stories from his own experiences.
Mark has been seen on all of the major commercial TV channels and radio stations haven’t escaped his attention either, having been heard around the country under the “Home Grown Humour” banner, but to be fully appreciated, he has to be seen live.
Mark also holds a genuine belief that the comedy industry has a significant role to play in regards to helping reduce the current rates of societal stress, anxiety, depression and suicides.
“I’m a firm believer in encouraging people to experience comedy in all its forms, it’s been proven that laughter is beneficial to your health and can help reduce stress and anxiety. This in turn creates more work for comedians thus adding value to our industry as a whole, so everybody wins.”
Andre Vincent was born May 1964 in Woolworth’s Department Store Penge, and has not stopped appearing in the most unusual of places since.
After a quick stint of training in Paris and with a backpack full of equipment, Andre started travelling the world entertaining the masses at circus and theatre festivals everywhere. With skills in abundance and his unique style of improvisation, he has performed in strange places from a bullring in Columbia to a baseball stadium in Nova Scotia to Vietnamese refugee camps in the South China Sea.
With all this moving about, Andre had to think about where his career was going when he found himself working at Disney World Florida at the end of 1988. Mask work and regimented smiling were really not his forte. A friend tried to change his sad demeanour by taking him to a comedy club in Orlando and three hours later a new chapter opened in his life. He kept returning to the club, speaking to comics and schmoozing the management, and within a few months he was on the road compering at small stand-up clubs in the southern states of America.
His apprenticeship in Georgia and Alabama was good enough in the eyes of his peers to get gigs in other states of the U.S. and the pinnacle of this work was opening for Bob Hope in Columbus, Ohio in 1992.
With his head swelling and his tongue tripping one-liners, he returned home to conquer the comedy circuit of the U.K., and in no time at all established himself as one of the top stand-ups in the country today.
The Glasgow, Scotland native arrived in the United States on a mission. From the minute he stepped onto the comedy scene he has been making waves. From Appearances on The Comedy Network’s; “The Great Canadian Laugh Off” and “The Montreal Comedy Festival” to The CWB’s “The Daily Buzz” and NBC’s “Night Shift” and “New Day”, to reviews such as “Funny As Hell” – Good Times Magazine, Long Island, NY & “This is what live stand up is supposed to be” – Weird Magazine, Austin, TX.
