Mark Normand on Performing in Central Park

“This is comedy now. It’s in a park. There’s no microphone. You’re basically just a hobo screaming to strangers…in the park.”

Behold Mark Normand, in “Park Normand,” a video posted yesterday following him on three gigs in New York City’s Central Park, trying to find live audiences for stand-up comedy wherever and however you can in the summer of 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These shows were via Stand-Up NY‘s “Stand Up NY in the Park.”
