Mark DeCarlo


How about food with a side of funny? Break the Cycle is happy to welcome back Mark DeCarlo as our event MC. Leveraging a comedic career on Los Angeles radio and a string of hit television shows, Mark DeCarlo hit the road for the Travel Channel's "Taste of America with Mark DeCarlo." For the show's four seasons, Mark searched for delicious food by the unsung American zealots who champion personal recipes over mass-produced mush.
