Mark Mitchell


Mark Mitchell (born 29 September 1954) is an Australian actor, comedian and contemporary artist, best known for his character Con the Fruiterer. Mitchell trained as a teacher of English - B.A. (Melb) Dip.Ed (S C V Rusden) - Mark taught middle and senior English for 5 years before deciding to follow his heart into performance. His entry into the entertain-ment world, dressed as the Devil, required him to deliver singing telegrams! Oddly enough this venture lasted only two weeks. Deciding that he was ready for stand-up comedy, Mark soon realized that perhaps stand-up comedy was not ready for him, but he persevered with it for almost six years before concluding that the corporate sector offered more intriguing opportunities for comedic addresses around focused themes. The huge success of The Comedy Company (1988-1990) during the late 1980s brought Mark Mitchell, larger than life, into the homes of all Australians. His character portrayal of a Greek fruiterer named CON endeared him not only to many Australians, but also to the Greek community. Mark soon found himself in demand from both local and international film and tele-movie including The Munsters' Scary Little Christmas (1996), Like Mother Like Son: The Strange Story of Sante and Kenny Kimes (2001), Blonde (2001), On the Beach (2000), Child Star: The Shirley Temple Story (2001) and Inspector Gadget 2 (2003).
