Early Life and Education
Mark Normand was born on September 18, 1983 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Growing up, he spent much of his time making short films and doing theater; among his early show-business inspirations were Groucho Marx and Woody Allen. As a teen, Normand went to De La Salle High School. At the age of 16, he lost his virginity in the French Quarter to a 45-year-old. For his higher education, Normand attended the University of New Orleans before dropping out and enrolling at the New York Film Academy. However, he disliked it there, and began doing open mics during the night.
In 2006, Normand began his career performing stand-up comedy at Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar in New Orleans. After moving to New York City, he performed there at various venues.
Live Stand-Up Appearances
Since getting his start in stand-up comedy, Normand performs regularly throughout the United States and internationally at comedy clubs, festivals, and colleges. Among his notable festival appearances, he has done stand-up at the Seattle International Comedy Competition; the Melbourne International Comedy Festival; the Bridgetown Comedy Festival; the Boston Comedy Festival; and the Great American Comedy Festival.

Additionally, he competed in the eighth season of the reality television competition show “Last Comic Standing,” where he advanced to the semifinals.
In 2014, Normand was a featured performer in an episode of the stand-up comedy series “The Half Hour” on Comedy Central. The same year, he released an album through Comedy Central Records entitled “Still Got It,” which he recorded in Madison, Wisconsin at Comedy on State. Normand had another gig with Comedy Central in 2017, when he debuted his hour-long special “Don’t Be Yourself” on the channel. Later, in 2020, he released a new comedy special entitled “Out to Lunch,” which covers such topics as anxiety, homosexuality, and drinking.
In addition to his stand-up performances, Normand has ventured into the world of acting. He had his first role in 2013 on the sketch comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer,” a show he appeared on again in 2015.
