Comedy Social Presents Mark Viera
As his career flourished, Mark personalized his artistic passion and parlayed it into one of his greatest labors of love: A one-hour Showtime special aptly entitled “Tales of Nuyorican”. The show, an homage to his upbringing and hilarious life experiences, became an instant classic. With the success of Nuyorican and a sold-out tour with singer Marc Anthony firmly establishing him as a force to be reckoned with, Mark, a devoted family man with an altruistic nature seized the opportunity to give back, first by performing on a comedy special for American Family Insurance. “Stand Up For Family”, which was hosted by good friend and fellow comic Bill Bellamy, became a benchmark for family friendly entertainment. Shows for the “Make a Wish Foundation” and the “VIP Drug Rehabilitation Centers” in his native Bronx, as well as several command performances for our U.S military overseas accent his philanthropic efforts.

William Gartner
Gartner’s work ethic is mythical amongst even his most storied contemporaries: Make music all week. Play it out all weekend. His DJ sets – and this speaks to a combination of prolificness, personal taste and a proven track record – are almost entirely made up of edits of his own work. Whether or not his progressively more maximilist take on electro-house is your bag or not, you have to respect his exponentially steep rise through the electro-house ranks.
