Mark Eddie is an American comedian with a musician’s point-of-view on everything from pop culture to parenting.  With his guitar, signature voice and happy-go-lucky spirit, Eddie points out quirky things in the hits we love while delivering dead-on musical impressions of Al Green, Neil Diamond, Shaggy, Dave Mathews and more. Having toured professionally for 14 years as a musician/singer/songwriter, Eddie has a knack for putting a satirical spin on pop anthems, music headlines and rock legends. Eddie has been featured on Comedy Central, Sirius XM satellite radio, and has performed in clubs across the country, from Hollywood to Las Vegas to Pittsburgh – and now in Altoona!
