The International Headliner mixes great Stand-up with outstanding Ventriloquism. A Class Act...
Marc combines his unique monologue with onstage audience participation, and expert ventriloquism with the help of his colorful cast of characters. A drawing that magically comes to life, A Jamaican Rasta-mon, a fortune telling Swami, a long-haired Hippy, a tattoo clad Redneck, and two masks that transform audience members into unforgettably hilarious characters. 
Marc appeared on the television show, "Accidentally Famous" which was filmed before a live audience at the HBO/Aspen Comedy Festival. He has also appeared on Comedy Central and Showtime.
Marc performed regularly as a fly-on entertainer for Carnival Cruise Lines for 11 years and during that time he was ranked in the top 5% by the entertainment department. He has headlined some of the top clubs in Las Vegas and many prestigious Comedy Clubs such as the The Catch A Rising Star and The Improv as well as at casinos and resorts all over the world. Marc now focuses on corporate and fundraising events all of the country.
