Acting

One of Britain's finest comedians and broadcasters, Marcus appeared in the role of Mr. Perks in THE RAILWAY CHILDREN at Waterloo. He starred as King Arthur in the West End and on a fantastically successful nationwide tour of SPAMALOT.

Marcus is currently rehearsing for the revival of BARNUM at the Menier Chocolate Factory.

He has recently written his first radio drama for BBC Radio 4 starring Rufus Jones and David Calder called THE RED. He also recently starred as Ali Hakim in the BBC Proms performance of OKLAHOMA with John Wilson conducting. He can also be seen opposite Alexis Conran hosting THE JOY OF TECHS, airing on Dave for UKTV.

Marcus's talent was noted early on in his career in 1996 when he won the BBC New Comedian Award at the Edinburgh Festival. He is now regarded as a major comedy, writing and acting talent, performing stand up nationally to sell out audiences both on tour and on the well trodden comedy circuit. BBC Radio 4 has become somewhat of a second home to Marcus with regular appearances on The Now Show and Just A Minute; He has also written and recorded three series and four specials of his hit show Giles Wemmbley-Hogg Goes Off. Marcus has notched up an impressive list of TV credits including his role as team captain on Argumental (DAVE), and host of The Late Edition and I've Never Seen Star Wars (BBC FOUR). Other appearances include; Have I Got News For You (BBC ONE), QI (BBC TWO), Sorry I've Got No Head (BBC ONE), The Late Edition (BBC FOUR), and the 11 O'Clock Show (Channel 4).

Marcus is the master of satirical comedy and has proved to be blisteringly funny over a wide range of topics including; Climate Change, Religious Extremism, Immigration, Loans Companies, The Special Relationship, Compensation Culture, Women's Magazines, The EU and David Blaine, not to mention his own personal battle against his middle class roots.
