2015 was a breakout year for actor/comedian Mark DeMayo. He appeared on Comedy Central’s The Nighty Show with Larry Wilmore. His solo show 20 & Out, about his career as a NYC Police Officer won rave reviews at the International Fringe Festival and he was
hired by Emmy Award winning writer (Monk) Andy Breckman as a Police Consultant for his new murder mystery show for ABC.
Mark is a native New Yorker and has the accent to prove it. As Mark tells it, “I wanted to do Shakespeare, but I have this heavy New York accent, so I went to a speech therapist, a good one, she was a big shot, she worked with Meryl Streep, after two lessons she gave me my money back, she said couldn’t help me because I wasn’t practicing enough. I said I am practicing at home,
but I can’t practice at work because I’m a NYC COP. I can’t yell, Thou art under arrest, at the bad guys, they’d laugh at me and walk away.
When not performing his stand-up comedy act or touring with his solo show 20 & Out, Mark writes an article entitled “Back in the Day” and produces a web- series “Off the Cuff” for the online publication
Mark has also been featured on Gotham Comedy Live for AX’s.TV, Showtime’s WhiteBoyz in Da Hood, and on MTV and VH1.
