ST. PETERSBURG - Standup comedian and star of Hangin' with Mr. Cooper Mark Curry will kick off the Morris Day & The Time concert at The Mahaffey Theater on Friday, July 11 at 8 p.m.
Mark Curry's first role was in the film Talkin' Dirty After Dark, alongside Martin Lawrence in 1991. In 1992, Curry got his big break as the star of hit television series Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, where he played the lead role of Mark Cooper, an NBA player-turned-substitute teacher/gym coach. The show spanned five seasons on ABC.
In 2000, Curry also had a recurring role on The Drew Carey Show as Drew's boss at Winfred-Louder. He appeared in six episodes. In an April Fools' episode of The Drew Carey Show, Drew refers to Mr. Soulard as Mr. Cooper, the joke being that Curry played both roles.
In 2012, Curry joined Sommore, Earthquake, Bruce Bruce and Tony Rock on the "Royal Comedy Tour." Later in 2012, Curry joined Nick At Nite's first-ever original live-action family comedy series, See Dad Run, as Scott Baio's friend Marcus. The series ran for three seasons.
Curry currently stars in the Bounce TV sitcom One Love.
