Bonnaroo Comedian | Mark Normand
Stage & Time | TBA
Bonnaroo has always been about more than just music, and nothing exemplifies that better than the impressive array of comedians the fest recruits for its Comedy Theatre each summer. The 2015 lineup is no exception, and, for the first time, we’ve decided to spotlight each performer individually as we’ve done for musical acts for the last several years. Catching comedy is tough, since it sometimes requires missing out on musical acts, but, trust us, it’s an incredible experience. Keep reading for your Bonnaroo Comedian of the Day…
Born and raised in New Orleans, LA, and now residing in New York City, standup comedian Mark Normand has, just in the past few years, been named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch,” Village Voice’s “Best Comedian of 2013,” Esquire’s “Best New Comedians 2012,” Splitsider’s “Top 10 Up and Coming Comedians on Each Coast,” and Time Out New York’s “21 New York Comedy Scene Linchpins.” He’s released a half hour special for Comedy Central, and appeared on the network’s Inside Amy Schumer, John Oliver’s New York Standup Show, and, like many of this year’s Bonnaroo comedians, @midnight. Harboring a pretty straightforward, personal, observational, and story-based style, Mark has also been featured on VH1’s Best Week Ever, truTV, Showtime’s “Live at SXSW,” and Last Comic Standing. He released his debut comedy album, Still Got It, in 2014, through Comedy Central records, and has performed standup on Conan twice. Check out one of those appearances below!
