Mark DeMayo is a retired NYPD police officer turned writer and stand-up comic.
He performs nightly at popular comedy clubs like The Stand, Dangerfield’s, and New York Comedy Club, and has appeared on AXS TV’s Gotham Comedy Live. He can also be seen starring in his one-man show based on his 20-year police career, 20 & Out, at Peoples Improv Theatre.
Mark is a native New Yorker and has the pedigree to prove it. His mother is from Czechoslovakia and his father is from Dominican Republic. As Mark tells it:
“My mom and dad met in English-speaking school. They quickly fell in love and got married. Once they could understand what the other was saying, they got divorced.”
Over the years, Mark also made a name for himself as a bodybuilder, a breakdancer, and a model. He’s now married with two teenage children.
