Hi, I’m Mark Turcotte
I began performing stand-up comedy in blah, blah, blah – who cares. That’s not why you’re here. If you want to learn more about me, feel free to make markturcotte.com your homepage and share the link in your ‘reply all’ emails at work.
I created Maine Event Comedy (MEC for the acronym savvy) as a vehicle to showcase some of the best comedians from the Pine Tree State and beyond. I say ‘beyond’ because it turns out a lot of comics from not-Maine enjoy performing here. They regularly request opportunities to make you discharge pricey beverages from your nostrils and I’m happy to oblige.
In just a couple short years – seriously, they were like 237 days – MEC has grown from a one venue operation to something I can barely control. It’s like trying to handle a moray eel after eating a big pile of curly fries. You know the feeling.
Along with private gatherings, corporate events, community fundraisers, Flag Day celebrations, and gender-reveal parties, MEC produces recurring shows at several venues throughout the state – from South Portland to Bangor – in venues ranging from craft breweries and historic theaters – and we’re growing by the week. Heck, I recently ordered business cards and joined the Chamber of Commerce!
If you, your friend, or anyone in your ‘reply all’ list would like to hire MEC, please give me a holler.
