welcome... to our pandemic-induced, attic-based, family "TV" show! we think kids should rule the world! (and in our show, they do.) our punk rock, lost boy host, Mario, leads the way...

we celebrate kids and their silliness, ingenuity, absurdity, creative spirit, wisdom, hilarity, kindness, and innate intuition for what is right...

The Mario show is a segment-based show, led by a punk rock maker magician host with the following recurring elements:

what if kids ruled the world

In each episode, Mario interviews a new batch of kid correspondents. 

They answer pressing questions, react to Mario's antics, and give us a glimpse into what's important in life.

WHO IS MARIO?

Mario "the maker magician" marchese is the Mario show's co-creator (along with his wife, Katie) and fearless host!

pre-pandemic, mario's days were spent on the road with Katie and their two kids, gigi and bear, touring theaters across the country and world, with his all-ages, one-man theater experience full of magic, diy robots, and new-school slapstick. he's been featured in make: magazine for his maker mentality. he's appeared on Sesame Street, NBC's UniversalKids, and even toured as David Blaine's opening act in 2018. In their february 2019 cover story, M-U-M magazine called mario "magic's punk rock Peter Pan philosopher." we'd be hard-pressed to put it better than that.
