Staying true to his 100% mentality, Mystro recently took time away from the entertainment spotlight to deploy to Iraq with his Army Reserve unit for a year. Mystro is also a 15 year Army veteran. While he was in the combat zone he decided to do an impromptu comedy show for his fellow soldiers. That show turned into two shows, which have now turned into the new comedy CD, "Mystro Clark: Live in Iraq".
Always the artist and businessman, when asked why he took time off from his career to answer the call of duty and go to war, Mystro replied,
"It was time to take a break. After 20 years doing comedy, you need to refill your cup with real life, and getting shot at in the desert is a real life or death experience. I'm the real 100%. I don't just talk about life, I live it, that's how I write real jokes".
