Marcus, the Funny Man Who Does Tricks

Marcus Wilson was born on April Fools day 1973, so it seems only fitting that he has a passion for jokes. This passion kept him in trouble all through elementary and Jr. high School. In ninth grade, he enrolled in a drama class and discovered a place where acting out was encouraged and accepted. He found that as long as he was on stage people seemed to enjoy his obnoxious antics. In high school, while working at a restaurant, he learned to juggle with rolls and oranges and fell in love with useless tricks and odd skills. At the age of 22, armed with a handful of these tricks and a desire to entertain, he began doing shows. About five years later, he began performing in comedy clubs. Since then, he has been making his living performing.
