Ep. 53 – Mark Shunock, Entertainer, MC and Philanthropist

Quickly after he arrived to play Lenny in “Rock of Ages,” Mark Shunock fell in love with Las Vegas. And it took him only about three months to put together a charity that is prospering to this day: Mondays Dark.

Mark and wife Sheryl Daro call upon their performing friends every other Monday to put on a show, the proceeds benefiting a different Las Vegas charity every time. Since it began, Mondays Dark has raised more than $1.5 million.

While “Rock of Ages” is gone, Mark is best known as the in-game MC for the Vegas Golden Knights. He’s the guy up at the siren keeping up the energy between periods. And he’s now branched into boxing, as a ring announcer for Top Rank Boxing cards.

And, oh yeah: he was nominated for a Tony Award for his work in “The Lion King” on Broadway! Quite a bit, he says, for a kid from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario!

Hosts: Jonathan Jossel, Lisa Melmed, Gary Vickery
