Mark Eddie (Corporate Stand Up Comedian)

With his acoustic guitar, an infectious spirit and a powerful singing voice rock n’ roll, corporate stand up comedian Mark pours his heart into his work. His corporate comedy act features original songs, parodies and countless musical references, guitar rifts and dead-on impressions of artists like Bob Dylan, Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison, and more.

Mark performed in bar-bands while attending college in Ohio. Soon after receiving his degree, Mark was touring coffeehouses and opening for celebrities such as Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge, and Toad the Wet Sprocket. Along the way, Mark realized that his adventures as a professional musician could be the basis for a comedy act. "One day I just went from rock musician to rock comedian," he says.

Mark has released three corporate comedy CDs and garnered five nominations for NACA Campus Entertainer of the Year. "I've officially become the Susan Lucci of that award," he deadpans. Diagnosed at age four with Type 1 Diabetes, Mark is an active diabetes advocate. "We've got to find a cure," Mark says.  "I don't wanna be the only guy whose “E True Hollywood Story" ends with a tragic Snickers overdose!"
