WHAT he OFFERS YOU
A hugely likeable talent who has won countless awards, Marcus entertains audiences with his authoritative cynicism, educated tones and hilarious anecdotes. His razor sharp wit is edgy and unique and often finished with a serious point. He always remembers that funny comes first; and never fails to leave a room satisfied for those that want their comedy to pack a punch and those that enjoy middle-class ways.
