Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career, he co-starred in two independent films “Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies” and “Joanie Loves Furbies”. He did more films, some commercials and some theater before beginning his stand-up comedy career. Mark stands 6’7″, weighs in at 350 and technically a giant, however, he is very weak and wimpy. In his routines he weaves story of his life as a bumbling jolly giant in his engaging storytelling style. He has been compared to Louie Anderson.
Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states and all across Canada. His ultimate dream is to do a film that people will have actually seen.
