Comedian brings laughter to Maumelle assisted living facility

MAUMELLE, Ark. (KTHV) - Stand-up comedian Mark Klein is bringing his talents to an assisted living facility in Maumelle with a personal goal of performing for the severely underserved senior market. 

“My dad is in his 90s,” says Klein. “If he still enjoys comedy, I see no reason other folks his age won’t enjoy it as well.” 

Klein began his professional stand-up career during the comedy boom of the 80s. Since then, he’s gone on to conquer the cruise ship circuit and corporate comedy gigs. He has been profiled by CBS, GQ Magazine and Forbes. Now, Mark is setting out to perform for seniors in need of a good laugh. 

“Just because they are older, doesn't mean they have lost their need for laughter and love of comedy.”

Klein will perform at Elmcroft Senior Living located at 100 Bringler Drive in Maumelle on November 2. It will last from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m.
