Mark Giordano is 40! And single. And he wishes he lived during the era of the three martini lunch when it was good to be bad. But, he didn't. Former flames, Reality TV, Che' Gueverra, suburban dads, soccer games, an astute nephew and Christmas aren't safe from the musings of this mad man. The 50-minute solo comedy show, MAD MAN, is served chilled with a retro twist of lemon and, an acerbic shot of funny.
MAD MAN previously enjoyed a four month sold-out run at The People's Improv Theatre in New York City. This September marks its one year anniversary.
All performances take place at The People's Improv Theater, 123 East 24th Street (Between Park Ave. & Lexington Ave.)
