About this title


Actor, producer, and director Mark Sieve is the co-creator of the Renaissance vaudeville team Puke & Snot, the longest-running two-man comedy duo in the country and a headline show at festivals and comedy clubs throughout North America since 1974.

A comedy club owner in Los Angeles once said after an appearance by Puke & Snot: ''This act heralds the merging of the visual discipline of performance art with the verbal precision of classical drama, resulting in nothing less than a completely new art form. They'll never work here again.'' But work they did, and still do.

With wit and energy, Mark Sieve weaves choice tidbits about his remarkable partnership with Joe Kudla against the backdrop of his early life in a small Minnesota town and his emerging career as an actor. A supremely affectionate book, Call Me Puke finally puts to rest his mother's oft-stated and greatest fear: ''I hope I die before I find out all my kids are stupid.''

''Mark devotes as much energy to his golf game as his acting. Both, unfortunately, are above par.'' -Tom Watson, golf professional

''The most successful act on the Renaissance festival circuit, the nonpareils, Puke & Snot.'' -Calvin Trillin, The New Yorker
