About Mark Russell
Long before Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, there was Mark Russell, daring to joke and sing of the often absurd political process. He started in a little piano bar on Capitol Hill – right across from the lawmakers themselves. As he puts it, "I started at the bottom and managed to work my way down." He began knowing little about politics, but was an immediate hit because he could find humor in anything.
Mark Russell spent 30 years on public television as host of the "Mark Russell Comedy Specials," where it was consistently among the top-rated shows on that network. Recently, a retrospective of his work (Mark Russell’s America) was broadcast across the PBS network. During those same years he wrote a syndicated column, and recorded CDs, tapes and videos.
