A versatile and energetic performer with an appealing smile, Mario Joyner sends an audience rolling the aisles with his uncanny ability to create verbal chaos out of everyday situations.
Joyner is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from a family of seven brothers and sisters, and is the son of a preacher who is the only man who could make a Jehovah’s Witness say, “I think we have to go.” Joyner now makes his home in Santa Monica, California, which is a quaint little enclave where homeless people and interracial couples go to live in peace.
Joyner was formerly the host of MTV’s 1/2 Hour Comedy Hour. He has appeared many times on the Late Show with David Letterman, Showtime’s Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, as well as his own One Night Stand special on HBO.
Joyner has been the opening act for numerous tours and concerts, Chris Rock: Kill the Messenger – London, New York, Johannesburg and Jerry Seinfeld’s nationwide tour.
