Comedy Cabaret

January 26, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Do you find it hard to exercise in the drolls of winter? Well, make it easy with Comedy Cabaret at the 1867 Sanctuary! How? Studies show that vigorous laughter produces heat, sweat and stress relief similar to aerobic exercise and it’s a lot more fun!

Mark Riccadonna shares his gift of hilarious storytelling and a charisma that makes you feel like you’ve known him forever. A national headliner who has toured with the USO, made several TV appearances, written for Weekend Update for SNL and is a professional actor and director, you will quickly see why Mark is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere. Marc Kaye will be joining him. A comedian and writer with local roots, Marc is a regular on the comedy circuit who gives a human face to parenthood that looks like anything but a Hallmark movie! Local talent Adrian Colon, producer of the popular monthly Laugh at Life Comedy Show in New Hope, PA hosts.

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 also performs for Armed Forces Entertainment and has entertained U.S. and U.N. Troops worldwide, performing in six continents and across the United States. Outside of comedy, Mark is an accomplished actor and writer. Most recently Mark has a lead role in the feature film “Days of Power” and is a contributing writer for Saturday Night Live’s “Weekend Update”, Columnist and Travel writer for “Todays Man” Magazine, Wrote and Directed “Radio Gods” television Pilot, starred in “Game Night” (Winner of the International Film Festival NYC) been seen on AXS TV’s “Live at Gotham”, FOX’s “Laughs”, heard on Sirius XM and Bob and Tom, and also has a hit Podcast “Drinks Jokes and Storytelling”.
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. Look for his second album “Domestic Nomad” released by Realize Records.

Marc Kaye has been a regular on the comedy circuit spinning tales of growing up differently, navigating fatherhood, marriage…then divorce… strange looks while traveling and even stranger thoughts when not distracted! Marc has performed in clubs from CT through Washington, DC on thE East Coast and nationally, as well, often finding that there are no real regional differences that can’t be overcome with humor. An avid writer and musician, Marc has also developed several scripts, three web series, and numerous articles and written and trained for Fortune 500 Companies.

Adrian Colon has been performing comedy off and on for 10 years and his Laugh at Life comedy show, which he performs in New Hope, Pa., is typically sold out. Sharing stories about his upbringing and how he views the world, Colon takes pride in being able to make a crowd laugh. “My favorite part of being on stage is watching people laugh at me – or with me – who cares? I just love to hear the laughter,” he said. Along with the laughter, though, comes Colon’s serious commitment to hard work. “Success comes from taking everything you do seriously,” he says.
