Mark Crocker has become internationally recognized as one of best ventriloquists audiences have ever seen!
With his feet planted firmly in the Corporate Market, Mark has found his niche! Mark has been called to do TV shows on the Comedy Network, Network Commercials, and Consulting work on Episodic Television and Feature Films.
Mark Crocker was introduced to the ancient and complex art of Ventriloquism in 1977! From the simple beginnings of performing on the front porch, to local performances with the cub scouts and churches. Mark steadily progressed to doing every style of venue one can imagine. Sometimes multiple shows were the same day, and polar opposites on the age and humour range. In 2001, Mark easily made the leap from “real job”, to full time entertaining!
Performances are non-offensive, interactive, personalized and Extremely Funny!
Three decades of entertaining audiences across Ontario and Canada, has made Mark a favourite part of 1000`s of conferences, conventions and meetings for the corporate market. Mark Crocker’s special blend of Stand up Comedy delivered through Ventriloquism, creates a wonderful mixture of Old versus New.
What makes Mark perfect for business meetings and the like, is his ability to adlib, customize, and adjust his material for any given circumstance. All this without offending audience members. It is this gift that allows both independent, as well as corporate meeting planners to feel safe in recommending Mark to represent them or their conference centre. Providing a show that is not only hilarious, but extremely professional as well. A performance of sight and sound that will be remembered long after the meeting is over.
Mark opened for David Broadfoot at the Centre in the Square/Kitchener this past June. Mark has also had the pleasure of working with such acts as Jim Carrey, Long John Baldry, Good Brothers, Patrick McKenna, King Biscuit Boy and touring with Crowbar to name a few….
Mark has taken part in several radio programs, and been invited back to perform at the CNIB, 3 times! Proving that Marks skill goes beyond that of the VISUAL, to include true Comedy!
