Several friends attended to watch and cheer Mark on as he performed his first stand up set at a small comedy club near Boston. One of the attendees was his father, Mark Sr.
After a few moments the first laugh came from the audience. Mark had found his place on stage. The feeling of joy he got when his words mixed with the crowd has never left him. He continues to remember that first night in every performance.
"You had them in the palm of their hand. You read the crowd masterfully and knew just exactly what to do!"
“Mark Scalia was TERRIFIC—he was the EXACT character and personality we were looking to have.”
