For over a quarter-century, Mark has been making people laugh - in clubs, at colleges, casinos - you NAME it! You wanna "bet on a winner?" Bet on MARK KNOPE!
MARK has performed in 45 of these United States - with over 5,000 shows under his belt!
He covers his material in a fun and energetic manner - peppering in sound effects, quirky facial expressions and a few celebrity impressions along the way! He never stays on a particular subject too long - he shifts his show's gears from tattoos to golf...then, on to "dating grandmothers" and breast implants!

Since 1986, MARK has had the good fortune of working with many HEAVYWEIGHTS in the standup biz! He's opened for George Lopez, Kevin James, Harland Williams, Richard Lewis, Bobcat Goldthwaite, Tommy Chong, Bobby Collins, and Tommy Davidson!
In December of 2004, Mark had the opportunity to share the stage with "Mr. Las Vegas" himself - Wayne Newton - at Cleveland's Palace Theater!
