Mike Marino with Jaclyn Marfuggi at Catch The voice of Tony Soprano
Saturday, July 06 2019
Mike Marino – affectionately known to millions of his fans worldwide as New Jersey’s Bad Boy – is one of the most loved comedians of our time. He has performed in every major comedy club, theatre, casino and event center from New York to Los Angeles and around the world. Mike has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the business.

Mike Marino was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. He entered the entertainment industry at an early age and has studied at some of the most prestigious acting schools in New York, the Herbert Berghof Studio and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Mike has appeared in over 200 national television commercials, including many endorsements and has received a Best Actor Clio Award Nomination. He has acted in many Prime Time soaps and television shows including: As the World Turns, One Life to Live, Becker, Nikki, Frasier and Party of Five. His film credits include Crooks, Pizza with Bullets, Hangin’ in Hedo and Steven King’s Lucky Quarter and Criticsized.

Adding to his great success in film, theatre, commercials and soaps, Mike Marino began touring the world performing and selling out at countless clubs, theatres and casinos. His stand-up material ranges from cutting edge observations of everyday life to his Italian family roots; which recently spun into a T.V. pilot called “Re-Constructing Jersey”. His comedic style has landed him guest appearances on The Tonight Show as a regular sketch player, The Martin Short Show, Canada’s Comedy TV, The Boomer Show, Wild Pitch, and Hand Held Comedy Radio. A clip of Mike’s appearance on Byran Allen’s Comics Unleashed earned him over 7 million views (and counting), which has led to his current web series “Marino 2016” – an original comedy based on Mike’s road to the White House and wise guy attempt to become the first Italian American President of the United States.

"Best Storyteller Award" 2nd Grade, "Most Likely to be Famous" Senior Year High School, "Miss Greek Week 1st Runner Up" Sophomore Univ. of RI (damn sorority politics) Jaclyn Marfuggi has been entertaining since day one.  Starting out on dance competition teams in NJ then quickly finding her comedy voice through theatre and television gigs in NYC.  This triple threat began her professional career under the guidance of her teachers at STUDIO DANTE (Michael Imperioli and many of "The Sopranos" cast members).  Jaclyn is now rising to the top of a new generation of comics in Los Angeles. The Italian Irish Jersey girl has an east coast sass and quick witted humor that perfectly compliment her LA dry “get it together already people” point of view.  Great Actress-Terrible liar, hope you can handle brutal honesty.  She has her finger on the pulse of pop culture (Kim Kardashian impression included).  Oh and hand this musical theater nerd a mic you better get ready for some Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Beyonce impressions (dance moves included, I mean you probably recognize her from Lead dancer #1 role in the critically acclaimed Tito Jackson music video "Oh my Sarah").  

Not only have you seen her in many episodes of the YahooComedy! Hit series "The Flipside", and on the homepage of Funnyordie sketches, you also can catch her in films Frathouse Massacre, The Happy Couple, Violence of the Mind and the upcoming release "Alterred Reality" co starring w/ Jeremy Jackson!  

 She is also one of the founding creators and members of the white girl rapping sketch comedy duo “Weho Clique”. Their parody videos have gone viral on YouTube/FunnyOrDie/, and they’re currently in production on their upcoming sitcom "WeHos".  You can catch her jokes live all over the country but her home base is in Los Angeles at The Comedy Store, Hollywood Improv, and The Haha just to name a few.
