Early life and education

Boone was born Mark Heidrich in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Ginny, a retired teacher, and Bob Heidrich, a former construction consultant. He grew up on Chicago’s North Shore and attended the University of Vermont and played on the school’s men’s soccer team.

He moved to New York after college in 1983, where he started his career performing stand-up comedy with long-time friend Steve Buscemi.  Hre is a look at one of his early comedy shows, live from the East Village performance space Gusto House: Steve Buscemi (“Fargo”, “Boardwalk Empire”) and Mark Boone Junior (“Sons of Anarchy”) perform one of their classic routines in 1988. Recorded at the height of their popularity, and before widespread fame and Hollywood took all their attention, this rare video demonstrates their superb talent and acting chops.

His stage name surname, Boone, is also his nickname; he chose it from a New York City war memorial.
