If you ask him, or check out his media kit, Mark Sweeney will tell you he's a "professional comedian," even though his credits also include acting roles in "Boston Public," "The Visitor," and "Days of Our Lives." Along with those TV programs, Sweenz has also starred in several independent films which leads us to believe he's done a lot of porn. The four years he spent in the US Marines were forgettable, either that or he just can't remember them. Though his military history is a bit fuzzy, he's constantly being reminded that at some point he attended college, which is why he's still on the run from the student loan collectors. Mark Sweeney has also recently written his first book, Court Jester: The Making of a Comedian. Follow Mark on twitter.
While up on stage, comedienne Patti Vasquez is more like a close personal friend sharing humorous stories than she is a joke teller. Call her act "comedy with heart" or call it hysterically funny, Vasquez entertains audiences with her charming perspectives on politics, relationships and growing up in an Irish-Mexican-American family. Along with her storytelling, Patti keeps her audiences in stitches by pointing out the oddities in the everyday events and situations that anyone can relate to.
