He landed himself in the gloomy smoky bars of Washington DC. Later, he took an offer in the Capitol Hill bar, where he worked through his days catching glimpses of the politicians that came by to down a couple of drinks. He kept their moods light with his funny songs.

Right when the New Frontier was invading Washington Mark Russell showed up in the Shoreham Hotel for a two-week gig. What started as a two-week affair, lasted for twenty years. The politicians used to hang out in The Marquee Lounge where they listened to Mark's comedy on their own performance in that day.

That reputation also complements Marks neutral poise. It is his special trait to criticize both Democrats and the Republicans fairly equally. Hopefully he continues to tickle more funny bones and keeps the world of politics light and lively!
