Whilst studying at the University of Bristol, Marcus started to venture into the world of comedy, exploring the central themes he frequently touches upon today. Over the course of his degree, he performed in the comedic trio, Club Seals, which was later developed into a series of short programmes named We Are History, running from 2000 to 2001. After he graduated, Marcus played Bertie Wooster in BBC Radio 4’s adaption of Code of the Woosters, with Andrew Sachs as Jeeves.
In 2007, Marcus released his first stand-up comedy DVD, Planet Corduroy, which provides an insight into Marcus’ mind through distinctive topics from David Blaine to corduroy. In the following year, Marcus and a fellow comedian, Andrew Maxwell, created a festival centred around music and comedy, which took place in a ski resort in the French Alps. Showing no signs of slowing down, Marcus later starred in a live improvisation show that toured America called Totally Looped, which was then followed by his second stand up show, God Collar, in 2009.
With his comedic career taking off, Marcus signed a publishing deal with Transworld, turning God Collar Tour into a successful book in 2011. In the same year, Marcus’ successful radio show, The Now Show, came to a natural end, after running for 9 years. The show offered Marcus an opportunity to share his witty criticism, specifically directed towards magician David Blaine, who he described as “not magic”.
