BIO

   Veteran Character Actor and Emmy Award winning Voice Actor John Mariano was Born in Astoria New York, where at one time linoleum was a status symbol. For the last 25 years, he has been honing his craft in film, television, animation, theater and night clubs .  From  such Hollywood legends such as Burt Lancaster and  Kirk Douglas, Clint Eastwood, Blake Edwards and Steven Spielberg to George Clooney, James Gandolfini, Danny Devito, Gary Sinise and Edward Norton, John has had the good fortune of working with them and developing his skills as an actor, comedian and improvisor.

    With a BFA from the prestigious School of Visual Arts in NYC, John started as a comic illustrator where he freelanced for various magazines and most notable for the TOPP”S Bubble Gum Company where along with Art Spiegalman, Mark NewgardenDrew Friedman, Stephen Kroninger he helped create “Wacky Paks” and “Garbage Pail Kids” trading cards. The latter which became an 80’s pop culture sensation and have gone on to become collector’s items and the inspiration for some of today’s top artist and animators.
  
  A desire to embody the characters he created, stand-up and improv became the next natural step for his career. Starting in comedy clubs in Greenwich Village. During the waning days of the Cold War, John landed a role in a National Budweiser campaign celebrating the men and woman of the Armed Services, which gave him the opportunity to enter into the Screen Actor’s Guild Union and earn him enough car fare to head to the land of Fruits and Nuts; Hollywood. Finding work at LA’s Laugh Factory and Comedy Store with time spent honing his improv and sketch skills at “The Groundlings” he began sharpening his stand up skills and got and opportunity to become an opening act for Howie Mandel and perform sketch work on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
  
Furthering his craft, John entered into the world of Voice Overs. Creating original voices for hundreds of Commercial campaigns for such companies as Delta Airlines, Burger King, Geico, Orbitz. It was this time John won the role of Wally Gator for Hannah Barbera Cartoons, filling the mighty shoes of the great Daws Butler. It was during his tenure in the world of animation, John won an Emmy for his work on “Good Feathers” as “Bobby the Pigeon”, part of the Warner Bros.Peabody Award winning cartoon series “ANIMANIACS” from premier oscar winning director Steven Spielberg.It was at a wrap party on the Warner Bros. lot that Mr. Spielberg confided in John that he had screened his “Goodfeathers”cartoon for another oscar winning director, Martin Scorceses, whose own film “Goodfellas” was the source of parody, and had him rolling on the floor with laughter.
  
With a long list of credits, John has appeared on such show as “CSI: Miami”, ”The Sopranos”, “Desperate Housewives”, “The West Wing”, “The Tonight Show”, and recently “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, where his contributions were that of both writer and actor.
 
   When he’s not appearing on television, John can be found in the recording booth voicing many characters for cartoons like “Batman Beyond”, “Extreme Ghostbusters” and “Transformers”, “Hey Arnold”, “MIB”, “TMNT”,or video games such as ”Godfather 2”, “World at War”,”Final Fantasy”, “Star Trek”, “World at Warcraft” and many others too numerous to mention.
 John can be seen performing  live around town with  the acclaimed Improv group “The Spolin Players” , the last remaining pupils of Viola Spolin, the Mother of Improv and tours the world performing live radio plays for “The Golden Age Stories” Book Tour.
