Mark Normand's The Joke Building Expert In New Documentary, "Page To Stage"

New York comic Mark Normand, one of the most prolific names in stand-up comedy, is ready to pull back the curtain on how he writes his signature jokes & open up on his creative process in a brand new documentary series, Page to Stage, available exclusively on PunchUp Live.

The new documentary follows Normand as he takes an inkling of a premise that came to him in the bathroom of a fast-food chain to 5 different stages in NYC that very night. Over the course of six months Normand relentlessly sculpts his joke failure after failure, throughout Europe and the midwest, until it is finally ready for the big time: a sold out show at Carnegie Hall.

"These jokes don't write themselves" says Normand through out the documentary's sizzle reel.

This behind-the-scenes documentary provides audiences with a rare insider's perspective on how a joke evolves from its inception to its final form, shedding light on the often unseen journey that lies behind every punchline.

When choosing to partner with the innovative comedy platform, PunchUp Live, Normand wants to be fully real and hold nothing back saying "The suits had too many notes & we wanted to keep it raw & kooky." Danny Frenkel, CEO and co-founder of PunchUp Live, added “With traditional platforms, you don’t own your audience, you rent them from social media companies and streamers who hold all the data. We're thrilled to be the exclusive home for ‘Page to Stage’ and let Mark own his art and his audience."

The release of Page to Stage follows the critical success of his latest Netflix special, Soup to Nuts, as well as his breakthrough special Out to Lunch, which now has over 19 million views on YouTube. Normand is currently out on the road on his Ya Don't Say tour going all across North America throughout the rest of 2024.
