  • A convict, a war veteran, and a white guy walk into an art gallery: A conversation with Dark Mark, Ivan Martin, and Chris Colletti

    A convict, a war veteran, and a white guy walk into an art gallery: A conversation with Dark Mark, Ivan Martin, and Chris Colletti
    It all came together when Chris Colletti’s silver-sleeve jacket got stolen. “I think it was a moment of growth, because as soon as you lost that jacket we accomplished more,” Ivan Martin posits. “First time I went to Sidebar I remember lookin’ at myself in that jacket,” Mark Joyner adds, laughing. Colletti and Martin, who work together on a web series under the name “Me ‘n’ You Productions,” are good foils for each other; where Martin is more theatrical and extreme with analogies, Colletti is a little more straightforward and self-deprecating. When their pal Joyner, who goes by Dark Mark on stage, joins them, the conversation ambles, they interrupt each other, and they make each other laugh. Though their paths here have been divergent, the three of them now work together in various ways; in addition to the web series, Martin and Colletti also organize monthly stand-up showcases, which Joyner occasionally emcees. Joyner runs a weekly open mic at the Sidebar, one of the venues where they often meet up and which they all agree is a sacred space for trying out jokes. City Paper hung out with the three of them at Platform Arts Center (which, full disclosure, is run by a friend from whom I rent a studio space). We talked about how to break down divisions in the scene, the importance of critique and friendship, and how comedy is maybe a little bit like crack.
