Mark Malkoff is an American comedian, writer and filmmaker who formerly worked for Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report. In July 2011, Malkoff tried to do everything in his power to be thrown out of a Manhattan Apple Store, including having a pizza delivered, bringing in a band to play live music, bring in a pet goat, and trying to have a quiet candle-lit dinner with his wife.
