Mark Riccadonna grew up an artsy jock outside of Youngstown, Ohio. At age 17 (like a bad independent movie), Mark moved to NYC in search of himself and happiness. He pursued Theatre at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, joining "The Company" after graduation. Soon after, Mark stumbled upon Stand-Up Comedy and found success as a storyteller, performing throughout New York City, and 'on the road'. Mark currently also performs for Armed Forces Entertainment, and has entertained U.S. and U.N. Troops worldwide, performing in six continents while working with his childhood heroes.
Whether he is working with The Amoralists Theatre Company (In the acclaimed hit "Happy in the Poor House"), Angry Shih Tzu Productions or on tour with Stand-Up, Mark continues to climb the ranks. He is a gifted storyteller, with a charisma that makes you feel like you've known him forever, unique delivery, signature voice (that has landed him several commercials) and likability; you will see why he is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere.
Jim is a seasoned, professional stand-up comedian. Starting at the age of 19, the audience has seen Jim grow up before their eyes, appreciating his unique outlook on life every step of the way. The audience goes from the laughter of recognition, as Jim covers the things they were talking about 'just today,' to the laughter inspired by delighted wonder as they experience new things through the flat out funny observations of this trusted performer.
He is respected in the industry, so much so that he was asked to author "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Comedy Writing" (Alpha Press, © 2004.) Jim's comedy has been featured on stand-up stages around the world. He's brought his special brand of funny to Current TV, SiTV, Comedy Central, The Fox News Network, HBO and the BBC.
With over 25 years of performing experience, Carole Montgomery is a veteran of the standup scene nationwide. Too many TV credits to list but include: Showtime, Oprah, MTV and Lifetime. The National Mom is on the move!
