Mark Riccadonna grew up an artsy jock outside of Youngstown, Ohio. At age 17 (like a bad independent movie), Mark moved to New York City in search of himself and happiness. He pursued Theatre at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, joining "The Company" after graduation.
Soon after, Mark stumbled upon Stand-Up Comedy and found success as a storyteller, performing throughout New York City, and 'on the road'.
Mark Riccadonna continues to climb the ranks in the world of stand-up. He is a gifted storyteller, with a charisma that makes you feel like you've known him forever, unique delivery, signature voice (that has landed him several commercials) and likability.
In his debut at the Funny Stop, audiences saw why he is a favorite at clubs and theatres everywhere. Now everyone gets another chance to see Mark Riccadonna at the Funny Stop.
Mark currently also performs for Armed Forces Entertainment, and has entertained U.S. and U.N. Troops worldwide, performing in six continents while working with his childhood heroes.
Jake Soloman Crowned
As "Ohio's Best
On Tuesday night, September 16 a huge crowd had the opportunity to see the ten amateur comedians who survived
the preliminary qualifiers, quarter-finals, and semi-finals to reach "THE FINALS" of the latest edition of
the "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian" Contest at the Funny Stop.
Scores of performers had taken the stage over the Spring and Summer of 2014 to open the Funny Stop's Tuesday night shows in an attempt just to qualify for the elimination rounds of the contest.
During "The Finals", each contestant performed 5 minutes of clean material and the panel of judges used their professional experience to score the performances as to rate the audience support and response for each amateur.
When the numbers were tallied, Jake Soloman had achieved the goal of all of the competitors, being crowned as "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".
Congratulations go out to Jake for earning the championship title.
Special recognition also goes out to the other 9 performers who advanced to the championship round.
In alphabetical order, they are:
Dan Fallone, Kali Fencil, Chris Harvey, Tony Madurai, Jerry Miller, Nancy Remlee, Spike Salazar, Drew Seachrist and Rob Telecky.
Keep an eye on the Funny Stop schedule for the club's next competition to see who is "Ohio's Best Amateur Comedian".

Full Week of Shows
There was a time, not so long ago, when only friends and by passers walking down a New York street saw bright promise combined with energetic talent when entertainer Gemini strutted his stuff.
Several Las Vegas, Palladium, Atlantic City, and hundreds of comedy clubs later, Gemini's magic and ambience are changing things.
Everything about Gemini and his show is a cut above fantasy. His magic, his jokes, the way he reads the audience easier than a front page headline. Because of his unique style of showmanship he not only keeps the show in motion with his jokes, he has several magic sets as well.
The "Maestro of Magic & Laughter" is also an accomplished ventriloquist, with several "friends" that keep the audience in the palm of his hand.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, his streetwise sense of humor and wit came in handy throughout his life "in the neighborhood." As he says, "I do a little bit of comedy and a little bit of magic. What you laugh at, that's the comedy. What you don't, well, that's the magic."
A Special Family Magic Show will be offered Saturday, November 5th at 2:00PM - Call 330-923-4700 for reservations.

NEW YEAR'S EVE
Over 20 Performers & Officials Took The Stage
During "A Toast To Mike Veneman" Fund Raiser
On Monday, January 18, 2010 the Funny Stop Comedy Club hosted "A Toast To Mike Veneman", a fund raising
event to honor the longtime legend in Northeastern Ohio comedy.
The event was one of his last public appearances as Mike Veneman lost his battle with ALS, Lou Gehrig's Disease, on Saturday, October 30, 2010.
A huge audience was entertained and moved by the rapid fire comedy, sincere remembrances, previously untold stories, and governmental recognition during the bittersweet event which was highlighted by the more than 20 individuals who took the stage to honor Mike.
To see a full list of those who gave their time to appear at "A Toast To Mike Veneman" and to view several photos from the event, click HERE.
