Biography

Mark Riley was born and raised in Boston (yes, he can pronounce his “r’s”) and is one of the most-booked comedians in New England. His high energy and unique perspective on everyday situations combined with his sharp observational humor keeps audiences in stitches. His material is always changing so you’ll never see the same show twice. He connects with audiences in a unique way and is fearless to hecklers! Mark performs at comedy clubs and is available for fundraisers, corporate/private events, roasts, and will emcee or host your event. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly show, PG-13, or R rated, (he draws the line at X rated) he will deliver laughter. Lastly, Mark has starred in commercials and is available for voice work.

Mark fine-tuned his comedic talents in various coliseums and “ice barns” throughout the country when he traveled as a professional ice hockey referee. He was a stellar employee of the NHL for one whole week before he was fired. It was at that moment Mark realized he was better on stage rather than the ice. Mark co-authored the movie script “Penalty Box” based on his life in pro hockey. He is currently publishing his first book and has many television appearances including NESN and Dirty Water TV. And to further impress you, he was a finalist in the 2016 Boston Comedy Festival.
