We are honored to have the comedy legend Dom Irrera join the podcast this week. An old friend of Mark's, he and Dom go way back to their start in the 1970's NYC comedy scene.
Dom is an award winning comedian who has had memorable and hilarious performances in shows like "Seinfeld," as prop comic Ronnie Kaye, "Everybody Loves Raymond," "King of Queens," and "I'm Dying Up Here" among many others. Dom also voiced the widely loved character Ernie on Nickelodeon's "Hey Arnold." He won a daytime Emmy award for his character Duke the Dog on Nickelodeon's "Back at the Barnyard." And everyone should watch him again in classic movies like "The Big Lebowski," and "Hollywood Shuffle."
Dom has won CableACE awards for his comedy special "One Night Stand" and for his writing on Comedy Central's animated series, "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist." An internationally loved comedian, Dom has been a fixture at comedy festivals in Montreal and Kilkenny, Ireland for many years.
And a podcaster himself, be sure to listen to Dom's incredible podcast "Dom Irrera Live from the Laugh Factory" where he interviews an unbelievable list of nearly every great comedian you could hope to hear from!
