Mark Little (born October 20, 1959), is an Australian actor, television presenter and comedian, born in a remote part of Queenslandmarker.


Little appeared in a string of Australian films and TV series during the 1980s. He also performed his own comedy/performance in Melbourne's burgeoning comedy clubs throughout the eighties. His longest-running television role was as Joe Mangel in the soap opera Neighbours. He played the role for three years until 1991. The role gave his profile a big boost in the United Kingdommarker where Neighbours was being watched by ten million people every day at the time. He consequently has spent much of his career in the UK, living for much of the time near the seafront in Brighton. He has taken many self devised shows to the Edinburgh Fringe and toured them nationally throughout the UK. In 1994 he replaced Chris Evans as the presenter of The Big Breakfastmarker. He has also narrated cult TV series The Villa on Sky TV.

Recently he has worked on films such as Blackball and in the West Endmarker with a hit one man show Defending the Caveman, which also won the Laurence Olivier Award in 2000. He returned to Neighbours as Joe on a short term basis in 2005 but was not satisfied with the writers' handling of Joe and refused to return on a long term basis.
