Mark Russell (born August 23, 1932) is an American comedian, pianist and singer, based in Buffalo, New York. For more than 25 years he has appeared on the American public broadcasting network PBS at least twice a year. He is known for playing the piano and singing in between periods of talking, and for making new words for popular melodies, which are meant to express the political situation that he is talking about. Russell criticizes the United States Democratic Party and the United States Republican Party fairly equally, and also criticizes third party and independent politicians, e.g. Ralph Nader. He has often been compared to Tom Lehrer..
