THE COME-UP: Comedian Mark Caesar Makes the World Laugh

I remember the first time Mark Caesar made me laugh. It was seven years ago when Team Piss Yo Pants Comedy released the forever viral video, “S**t New Orleans Girls Say” and I’ve been a fan of him ever since. As a stand-up comedian and the writer of the stage play When You’re Broke You’re Drove, Mark continues to make his fans laugh through stand-ups, funny skits, and his new comedy special. This is definitely a man that shows no signs of stopping! I caught up with Mark as we discussed his accomplishments and what success truly means to him.
