When Mark Morfey made it as a PGA Golf Professional, you might have thought he had it all, but then, you would have been wrong. While golfing was one of his passions, he was still missing the thrill that only telling jokes in front of a live audience could provide. That left him with only one choice, become a standup comedian. Now Mark is both a Golf Pro and a standup comic, and loves his two professions equally (unless one starts paying better, then he has no problem picking a favorite). The way he describes it, both jobs are really about the same. They each require good rhythm and timing, and neither involve random drug testing.
After walking away from a sweet Wall Street job, Paul Mecurio turned to a life of comedy and hasn't looked back sense. He started as a staff writer for Jay Leno and soon found himself collecting awards for his work with the "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" where his duties included warming up the crowd. Now, along with being a top-notch headlining comedian, Mecurio also has a featured on the B&T Show (as well as a new CD) called Image Makeover, and starred in an online video sports series on HBO.com called "Got No Game."
