Marvin hits the stage with authority and a unique wit as he shares his opinions about the world around him including women, relationships, travel, holidays, kids, and more. He was a member of The Ohio State University basketball team (really) – and left behind a successful advertising career to give comedy a try. His first comedy memory was being allowed to listen to Richard Pryor albums and then repeating his act in the school cafeteria. On a dare Marvin made his first stab at comedy when he auditioned for a talent show being held on the OSU campus. Marvin bombed at the audition but was not discouraged and he vowed to redeem himself.
Upon returning home to Dayton for the summer Marvin began to spend his free time studying the art of comedy and writing new jokes. Later that summer – in only his third time performing – he placed first in a amature comedy contest. The rest as they say – is history. Now a seasoned veteran whose style fits any venue, Marvin makes appearances at colleges and clubs across the country as well as regular appearances on Carnival Cruise Lines. He works with such acts as Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Bob Saget and Jeff Dunham. He has made appearances on B.E.T.’s Comic View, the nationally syndicated radio show Bob & Tom, and was the winner of the Carnival Cruise Lines Comedy Challenge.
