Dante Nero was born in Brooklyn NY. He attended Catholic school and was an alter boy.As a clever young boy he began a lucrative business of loosening soup thermoses for kids with over protective thermos tightening moms. At age 11 he began his martial arts journey as well as training in modern dance, tap and jazz. At 13 too young to work legally, Dante taught himself how to ride a unicycle and handed out flyers for $50 a day. He ran an icy stand, worked in a library as well as ran slips for the local bookie.
He learned how to fence at Tompkins recreation center in Bed Stuy, which earned him a scholarship for fencing to SUNY New Paltz. Tired of Ramen noodles he got a job with emotionally disturbed kids and on the side did strip shows for sororities on campus. When he got home to Brooklyn he bounced at some of the biggest clubs in the city with his brawler friends and fought them in closed factories at night for money. Always looking for a new hustle, he started a male strippers troop with 13 members. He then took a job with the phone company and became a cable splicer while still dabbling in exotic dancing and bouncing. He later became involved in his labor union. He quickly moved up the ranks to become a delegate with over 200 employees.
In 2001 he tried his hand at stand up comedy and loved it and has done it ever since. He always enjoyed comedy especially when he hired some well known comics such as Tracey Morgan and Mike Epps to open his self produced strip shows. His extensive life experience, philosophical point of view and an even sense of cynicism make his wit truthful and relevant.
So far, Mark has done a One-Hour Comedy Central special “Don’t Be Yourself”, a Comedy Central HALF HOUR special, has appeared on TBS’s CONAN 6 times, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Showtime’s “Live at SXSW”, INSIDE AMY SCHUMER, TruTv, Best Week Ever, MTv, Last Comic Standing, @Midnight and released an album with Comedy Central records titled “Still Got It” (it’s not bad). This year, Mark took first place at the Great American Comedy Festival competition. In 2013 won Caroline’s March Madness competition, beating out 63 other comedians. And this is a real shocker for all of us, but he was also voted Village Voice’s “Best Comedian of 2013”, I know, right? In 2012, Mark appeared on “John Oliver’s New York Standup Show” on Comedy Central, and in 2011 was picked as one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch.”
Mark was born and raised in New Orleans, LA surprisingly to two normal parents. As a kid he spent most of his time shooting short films and wetting the bed. He started doing comedy right after college and quickly moved to New York. Mark now does comedy clubs and colleges across the country and has been involved in many festivals including Portland, Seattle, DC, Boston, Vancouver, Melbourne and in 2013 was featured as a New Face at the Montreal Comedy Festival.
More annoying accolades that no one really cares about: Mark was named one of Comedy Central’s Comics To Watch for the 2011 New York Comedy Festival. Mark was also named Esquire’s “Best New Comedians 2012”, Splitsider’s “Top 10 Up and Coming Comedians on Each Coast”, and Time Out New York’s “21 New York Comedy Scene Linchpins”. Whew, sorry about all that.
