Mark Kendall
The past year has been one of the more tense and emotional in recent American history. In the midst of it all, comedy has become a lifeline for a lot of people. Mark Kendall gets the necessity of comic relief in a way that only the best comedians do. Instead of shying away from the country’s unrest, Kendall taps into it, creating starkly funny material that’s rooted in the reality of America’s struggle with race. In late 2014, Kendall’s acclaimed one-man show, Morgan Freeman Presents: The Magical Negro and Other Blackness, took a close look at the perception of black men in the media through a comedic lens. This summer it was announced that Kendall’s taking the show on the road. As a comic, Kendall is both quirky and relatable. For four years, he’s honed his theatrical and comedic talents at Dad’s Garage. He’s also spent time interning on “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report,” no doubt helping to hone his ability to bring a comedic perspective to everyday life and current events. - Creativel Loafing
