Mark Rennie

Mark Rennie is a California native, and currently lives in Los Angeles. A writer since childhood, when in the 4th Grade he wrote an award winning short story that featured a Intergalactic Warlord being frozen with an ice ray and then being melted with a heat ray. He then took those creative energies and attended Art Center College of Design to study Film. Writing credits include Funny or Die’s “Gay of Thrones,” The Onion, and even some Minnie Mouse cartoons that are a real palate cleanser. At UCB he’s been lucky enough to study under Nick Wiger, Chris Kula, Julie Brister, Brett Christensen, and Drew DiFonzo Marks. He’s written for Not Too Shabby, Sketch Cram, Quick & Funny Musicals, Uncle Irish’s St. Patty’s Day Shillelagh and more. Mark writes a recurring variety show called “Those Magnificent Moms” on the UCB stages a few times a year. He also does improv now and then.
