Mario Cantone Brian Balthazar BuildFrom his childhood days directing backyard performances of the Poseidon Adventure, to being ‘too gay’ for Johnny Carson, Mario Cantone has never been anything but his authentic, hilariously funny self.

Learn how he went from comic, to dramatic actor to an international superstar.

I was fortunate enough to sit down with Mario for the Aol Build series, where he made the audience laugh out loud and cheer for more. I’m glad to be able to call him my friend. Now watch this masterful performer and all around great person tell his own story – and leave you wanting more!
