Mark Cordes has been hailed by many critics as a "One Man Laugh Factory."
His television credits include "Comic Strip Live," "Carolines Comedy Hour" and "An Evening at the Improv." From his humble start at an open mic, he steadily worked his way up the comedy ladder. From the opening act to feature act to headlining the top comedy clubs and corporate events from coast to coast, Cordes has enjoyed the ride. "I realize every day how fortunate I am to do what I love. To be able to travel, meet interesting people, and make people laugh is a gift I enjoy sharing. And I know I'll never run out of material. I just got married, and so...
Terrifically funny." Indianapolis Herald
