Mark Poolos was born and raised in Edina, Minnesota. To start his career, he co-starred in two independent films: Attack of the Killer Snow Cone Zombies and Joanie Loves Furbies. He did more films, commercials and some theater but it wasn’t enough…so he began his stand-up comedy career! Mark stands 6’7″ and weighs in at 350 (technically a giant), however he is very weak and a wimp. In his routines he weaves story of his life as a bumbling jolly giant in his fast engaging story telling style.
He has been compared to the likes of Adam Sandler and Louie Anderson. Mark is a true road dog, performing in 40 states and all across Canada. Mark’s ultimate dream is to do a film in the future people have actually seen. You may have heard or seen Mark on WGN TV, The Bob and Tom Show, Sirus/XM Satellite Radio as well as being the winner of the 2011 Comcast Trial by Laughter. Opening for Mark (and also making his first Wiley’s appearance) is the very funny Nate Armbruster.
