Mark Curry

Mar 19 - Mar 21
$20 - $35

A class clown since his earliest years, Mark quickly learned that a wild sense of
humor could take him places. While working at a drugstore after quitting college he honed and
polished a comedy act that he regularly practiced on customers. It was these customers, as well
as his family and friends, who finally encouraged Mark to try his stand-up routine at area
comedy clubs. With legendary comedian Richard Pryor as his inspiration, Mark made his debut
in Oakland and eventually became the city's most sought-after stand-up comic. His success there
paved the way for comedy-club bookings all over the world.
In 1992, Curry's first major role was on a television series Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, where he
played the lead role of Mark Cooper, an NBA player-turned-substitute teacher/gym coach.
He was the host of Comedy Central's Don't Forget Your Toothbrush in 2000 and had minor roles
in For Your Love, which starred, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper co-star, Holly Robinson Peete. Also,
in 2000, Curry starred in A Man Is Mostly Water. In 2001 he had a minor role in the Disney
Channel Original Movie Motocrossed. Later in the year, Curry played one of the leads in another
Disney Channel Original Movie, The Poof Point.
