Mark Felgate is a man with unique talents. His startling abilities as a ventriloquist combined with a wicked sense of humour have helped Mark move quickly up the ladder of stand up comedy.
Although he first honed his skills as a ventriloquist performing at children's parties from the age of 12, he began his stand up comedy career in 1996. In that short time, Mark has garnered awards and much praise for his unique and hilarious performances.
'... right on the funny bone and his voice throwing talents are very original' (The Stage).
