Mark McConville

Mark McCONVILLE (Aust)

Globetrotting Aussie headline comedian drops by NZ's home of live comedy

Having headlined and emceed all of the major comedy clubs around the country as well as regular corporate engagements and cruise ship bookings, Mark has comfortably become known as “One of the most reliable comedians in the business”

 “Performing is what I do, I’ve always done it, and I’ll continue to do it. Making people laugh is the best job in the world, I absolutely love it”

 “When I’m headlining on a cruise ship it’s great to go out there and do a full show for an hour or so. When MCing though I like to have more interaction with my audiences , you’re up there all night, make it personal and get to know each other and have some fun,  it’s great!”

As a story teller Mark can keep an audience enthralled as he peppers them with punchline after punchline littered throughout real life true stories from his own experiences. 

As Mark evolves from one of Australia’s leading Headline comedians into that of an Entrepreneur and advocate for Mental Health his stand up is also evolving.

 “I’m a firm believer in encouraging people to experience comedy in all its forms, it’s been proven that laughter is beneficial to your health and can help reduce stress and anxiety. This in turn creates more work for comedians thus adding value to our industry as a whole, so everybody wins”

Mark has been seen on all of the major commercial TV channels as well as being a featured comic on the Comedy Channels “Home Delivered Comedy”. Radio stations haven’t escaped his attention either, having been heard around the country under the “Home Grown Humour” banner, but to be fully appreciated, he has to be seen live.

2017 sees Mark celebrate his 19th year as a Stand Up Comic, and like fine wine he’s getting better with age. Mark’s approach is up front and personal.  His direct manner means the audience is engaged from the moment he steps onto the stage.  Short and punchy, his gags cut to the chase, giving the audience a full physical workout of the best possible medicine – laughter. His innate ability to connect with people from all demographics means he can zero in on the finer points of life and present them in a way that makes you laugh and laugh hard.

“My ultimate goal is to reduce societal stress, depression and suicides by creating a direct link between the Comedy Industry and that of Mental Health, while making a lot of people laugh along the way”
