Mark Eddie is a guitarist & comedian with a musician’s view on everything from pop music to parenting. With his signature voice & happy-go-lucky spirit, Eddie thoroughly entertains audiences the world over. His one-of-a-kind RockComedy show features songs, jokes, rock & roll history & spot-on singing impressions. Eddie is known for nailing the very essence of artists such as Al Green, Neil Diamond, Shaggy, Dave Mathews, Bruce Springsteen, Van Morrison & many more.
Having toured professionally for 14 years as a musician/singer/songwriter, Eddie has a knack for putting a satirical spin on pop anthems, music headlines & rock legends. With guitar in hand & tongue firmly in cheek, he tackles burning questions like: How does music of the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s stack up to today’s hits? How are heavy metal & polka similar? “They’re either brief moments of genius, or I have way too much time on my hands”, says Eddie with a grin.
As if performing 250+ shows a year at theaters & major corporate events for names like Verizon®, Medtronic MiniMed®, Bayer®, Disney® & Vans® isn’t enough, Eddie has also spoken &/or sung some of the most recognizable spots for Nickelodeon®, Showtime®, Nintendo® & Sears® among others.
Before comedy, Eddie *the musician* toured & opened for national acts like Jackson Browne, Melissa Etheridge & Toad the Wet Sprocket. While being singled out twice in Billboard Magazine®, nominated 5 times for the NACA® “Campus Entertainment Awards” and topping the CMJ® charts again & again, Eddie had a burning desire to explore comedy. Today Eddie *the comedian* tours internationally & headlines LA’s legendary comedy venues. “One day, I went from rock musician to rock comedian”, says Eddie. He even occasionally sits in as part of various All-Star Band line ups together with members of The Doors, Fleetwood Mac, Boston, No Doubt, The Doobie Brothers or Steely Dan. No matter what, Mark Eddie will simply make you smile with his beaming, positive energy.
Dozens of charities & fundraisers are at the top of Eddie’s priority list too. A Type-1 diabetic since age 4, Eddie is committed to The American Diabetes Association (ADA), The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) & St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
