What started at local Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Nights evolved into a decade-long passion for Vincent, who will record his first album, Am I A Millennial? at the Seaway Valley Theatre Company later this month.
“This year I’ve been 10 years in comedy,” Vincent told Seaway News, “I was just going to headline a show then it ended up turning into: we’re going to record the audio for an album. One thing led to another, now we’re doing video.”
Over the last ten years, Vincent has played at nearly every venue in Cornwall, as well as venues in Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, and Montreal. With a recorded album available on YouTube and posted as TikToks/Reels, Mark Vincent will expose his work to an even wider audience.
Am I A Millennial? is material that Vincent has been working on and refining for the last ten years. Once recorded, he plans to start working on new material.
“I’m kind of a storyteller. I talk about my life, my kids, my struggles as a dad. The album is called Am I A Millennial? So, there’s a lot of talking about the different generations,” Vincent shared, “Growing up without the internet and getting it later in my life compared to raising kids in a fully technological world.”
Mark Vincent and his crew at Off Your Rocker have raised thousands of dollars for local charities since they started hosting shows. Some charities they have donated to include Diversity Cornwall, Cornwall District Minor Baseball, Cornwall Hospice, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Champs Eastside Boxing.
Am I A Millennial? is being recorded over on Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th, with several local comedians opening. Tickets are available at Nativity Bowling, Clement Barber Shop, and online.
