Mark Ellis

Stand-Up Comedian

Mark Ellis is a comedian, actor, and host you’ve probably seen on tv, heard on the radio, or at least clicked on the internet.

A headlining stand-up that has played to sold-out shows all over the world and on television, Mark also has a monstrous online following as the co-host of the Movie Trivia Schmoedown, his cinematic combat trivia show that has over 300K subscribers and over 350 million views on YouTube. 

Mark recently released his new stand-up hour special Dog Stepfather (produced by Bill Burr & All Things Comedy) as well as another tv set for an upcoming Comedy Central project…his acting has been showcased in film, television, and numerous national commercials; he regularly appears as a commentator on NBC, MTV, VH1, E!, Reelz and network programs as well.  Since leaving a successful run as the host of Collider Movie Talk, Mark has now become the lead host at Rotten Tomatoes, including the top-rated weekly podcast Rotten Tomatoes is Wrong, and makes regular appearances on the Heidi & Frank LA morning show, The Adam Carolla Podcast, and Doug Loves Movies to name a few.

Since co-creating, the Movie Trivia Schmoedown, Mark and his Schmoes Know buddy Kristian Harloff have created the perfect marriage of movie trivia competition with WWE sports-entertainment flair…the show pits celebrities and internet personalities against each other in an exciting winner-take-all format that has become an online sensation.  A rabid fanbase has made the Movie Trivia Schmoedown the most popular program of its kind and has spawned a live show that sells out theaters all over the country.

A staple at conventions like Comic-Con, festivals such as South By Southwest, and comedy clubs across the nation, Mark currently lives in Los Angeles, does not play second base for the Dodgers, and recently continued his winning streak of being invited to every Star Wars movie premiere with The Rise of Skywalker (yes he loved it, come at him).
