“I always use this line,” comedian Mark Viera says when asked about how he came to be a stand-up comic: “Comedy chose me, I didn’t really pick comedy. It seems like I was born to this. I was the funny kid doing impressions of Eddie Murphy, Martin Short and Billy Crystal, when they were on Saturday Night Live.”
His first audience was his family, and now it’s folks in clubs across the country.
Mark Viera performs Thursday-Sunday. $10-$15. Funny Bone on the Levee, 1 Levee Way, Newport, 859-957-2000, funnyboneonthelevee.com.
