Mike Marino Performs at The Orleans Showroom Tonight
Affectionately known to his fans as "New Jersey's Bad Boy of Comedy," Mike Marino brings his act to The Orleans Showroom tonight, June 21.
A Jersey native, Marino entered the world of theater at an early age and later became a graduate of the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

After great success in film, theatre, commercials and soap opera opportunities, Marino began touring and performing at comedy clubs at theaters throughout the country. His stand-up material ranges from cutting edge observations of everyday life to his Italian family roots; which recently spun into a T.V. pilot called "Marino's". His unique comedic style has landed him guest appearances on "The Tonight Show" as a regular sketch player, "The Martin Short Show," "Comics Unleashed," "The Boomer Show," "Wild Pitch," "Hand Held Comedy Radio," "Rascals Comedy Hour" and more.
