Marc Trinidad may have been born and raised on the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, but the Caribbean island paradise could not contain his talent and aspirations for long. After being exposed to theatre and sketch comedy on his native island, a craving for international exposure began. Marc packed his bags and headed to the great white north to sharpen his stand up comedy sabre.
In the twenty years since making that jump, he's worked the stage with some of the best in the business, the legendary Kenny Robinson, Gina Yashere, Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock are names that will ring a bell. He's created history as the first Canadian to have appeared on BET ComicView, was featured on the Comedy Network, Now Magazine rated him as 'One to watch', voted Best Comic 'Soul'd Out Comedy Festival and is in rotation at Sirius XM. Not satisfied with wowing crowds across Canada, he's toured to Amsterdam, the UK, the US and the Caribbean. Armed with a versatile and wide ranging repertoire, new fans are routinely shocked by his unique island man swagger with Canadian wit and timing.
Whether it's a corporate event that requires a host with polished professional subtle material, or a bar/club environment that needs to be more high energy and shocking, he lives his mantra, 'Honesty in comedy.'
