Bio/ Resume

 – Comedian
– Musician
– Thinker
– Doer of things

With a dry wit, a penchant for one-liners and a delivery that relishes awkward silence, Mark Miller has been described as the Mad Scientist of Baltimore Comedy. His writing style is simplistically high-brow with a lean towards the absurd as obscure facts merge with kitschy knowledge. Mark has a way of relating to any crowd as he guides them through the predictably unpredictable recesses of this mind delivering unique ideas and sometimes even educating them in the process (He’s got an arsenal of jokes about every former US President).

The past year has seen Mark expand his performance territory beyond his home base of Baltimore with performances in NYC, Connecticut and DC as well as festival credits at Gilda‘s Laugh Fest, Artscape and the WV Comedy Festival. If you have a Rainman like photographic memory, you may also recognize him from his brief yet captivating  appearances in “Legends and Lies” on Fox News.

In addition to standup, Mark is an improviser, actor, writer and live show producer involved with the Charm City Comedy Project (CCCP) and the Baltimore Rock Opera Society (BROS). As a member of CCCP Mark performs short form improv with “Waiting For Steinberg” and writes and produces a monthly live podcast entitled “A Very Special Episode” wherein old sitcoms of a “Very Special Nature” are given a 2nd life as a new cast of performers does a live reading, while Mark offers live editorial in the form of commentary and a new sound effect track.

As a member of BROS, Mark recently debuted an original interactive Rock Opera he wrote, entitled “Revival,” to sold out crowds in the spring of 2015. Other past involvement with BROS has seen him digital shorts and on stage for numerous original productions including the face melting heavy metal epic entitiled “Grundlehammer.”

Mark is available as a host or featured act at Clubs, Colleges and Special Events of all types. Follow his social media accounts for updates on where to see him next, or if you can’t wait that long, check out the content that is just a few clicks and scrolls away on this very page right now….

You can also call his Dial A Joke Line:

  1. Hey, thought I’d come and check you out after you were so helpful with the gardening advice ‘n all! I’ve done a bit of stand-up myself too! I’ll come back at some point and look over your stuff here a bit more, watch some vids and so on, no time now, not today, very busy over at my place…

    • Thanks Vanessa, I’ll look forward to your future support. I believe you’ll discover that my offerings on my blog are indicative of my ADD’ness and cover a wide swathe of creativity…. or at least, that’s what I believe I’m doing… I might be totally fooling myself.

      I’ll try to give some of your other posts a good look as well. I do wonder what to do with fudge that won’t set.

      • hrmm, not sure if i should reveal my secret…..

        Ah, what the heck…
        When you followed/favortied my blog WordPress sent me an email notifying me of the occassion and as part of the notification it was like “Hey, why don’t you check her/him out too… here’s some links to her/his top stories.” And the fudge headline caught my attention…

        Similar to your gardening problems, I don’t understand much baking or dessert related creation. I love to eat the results and I cook dinners with the best of them (meaing the other men I know) but I leave the sweets to my better half (except for elaborate pie lattice, I’m a wiz with pie lattice… I’m dreaming of one right now)

      • Ah yes, I wondered if it was that after I asked the question! It’s funny because that post has had thousands of views, way more than any other of my posts, and it continues to get lots of views every day even though I wrote it ages ago. It scores well with Google, if people put things like “Why doesn’t my fudge harden” or similar search terms into Google, my post comes high up. I always find this quite fascinating, so when you mentioned the post I was quite surprised because obviously you don’t see my stats!

  2. Hi there. Random question for you. I was watching an old episode of a show called Comedy Shop, and I was wondering if you are the Mark Miller who was on (1980). Just curious, thought you were funny.
    Best
    Scott Soden

    • Sadly I am not that Mark Miller. I hope that one day I will be on a tv show that you might see and also think I am funny…

      I will have to find this other Mark Miller and put him into my file of “Mark Millers that aren’t me” which could end up being a new bit for me or something….

      Sorry to disappoint you, but please do keep an eye on me, you might find me funny too.
