Catch a Great Night of Comedy LIVE at The Paramount!

Featuring Mark Viera, Leighann Lord and John Iavarone

Mark Viera: Mark made his network television debut on NBC’s Emmy award winning show “30 Rock” an opportunity that piqued the interest of the industry’s most prominent executives. Mark is regularly featured as a part of The New York Kings of Comedy Tour. The comic and businessman recently sold a sitcom based on his compelling life to Warner Bros. and FOX. The much-anticipated project which is produced by comedy legend George Lopez is currently in development.

Viera is unfazed by his growing popularity and remains loyal to his New York roots. Known to his fans as the Latin Prince he performs regularly at top comedy clubs including Caroline’s on Broadway and Gotham Comedy Club. He is also a regular at Improv’s and FunnyBone Comedy Clubs nationwide. Mark was hand picked to perform on the “Leatherneck” tour for the U.S. Marine Corps which is now in its second year. His numerous television credits include performances on the critically acclaimed “Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment Stand-Up” and Comedy Central’s “Russell Simmons Presents Stand-Up at the El Rey.” Mark’s most recent television appearance was on AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live”. A completely live stand up performance.

Whether he’s talking about crazy marriage his growing kids his beloved grandparents doing one of his dead-on impressions or joking about his life growing up in the Bronx Mark Viera takes his audience on a hilarious heartfelt journey finding enjoyment in the absurdities of life.

Leighann Lord: Smart, sexy, savvy, and funny, Leighann Lord’s “heads up humor” is stand-up comedy at its finest. Inspired by the brilliance of George Carlin, the smooth jazz style of Franklyn Ajaye, and the elegance of Rita Rudner, Leighann has crafted her own unique brand of Thinking Cap Comedy. It’s no wonder she received the NYC Black Comedy Award for “The Most Thought Provoking Black Female Comic.” And for two consecutive years, Leighann was Harlem Week’s official comedian.

Leighann’s stand-up is frequently heard on XM-Sirius Satellite Radio and appeared on many stand-up comedy shows including Girls Night Out (Lifetime), The Original Def Comedy All Star Jam (HBO), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, VH1’s 40 Most Shocking Celebrity Hair Moments, The View (ABC), Comic Quickies (SiTV), HA! Comedy (Gospel Music Channel) and We Got Next! (ASPIRE TV). Named one of New York’s 10 Hot Comics by Improper Magazine her web site, VeryFunnyLady.com, says it all!

John Iavarone: John was born in the Bronx and lived there until his mom decided to migrate miles away (2 to be exact) on to the mean streets of…….. Westchester County. Now, John has his headquarters in “The Heights.” John has been doing stand-up comedy for 2,920 days (not in a row). Whether it’s an 8 minute or 38 minute set at a Club, Corporate Function, Private Party or Fundraiser John’s audience describes his hysterically funny set in one word, Honest, Original, Animated! OK, that was 1 word, but from 3 different audiences.

So if you want to hear his take on Current Events, Marriage, or Children. Ask his wife, or even better, come see him live!
