Comedian Marc Trinidad



Born and raised on the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, it soon became evident that 4,800 square kilometers of Caribbean island paradise could not contain the talent and aspirations of Marc Trinidad for long.

As explosive as Marc can be on stage, so too are his artistic exploits offstage. He began as a T-Shirt artist during his school days on the island, but within two years this hobby blossomed into a full time job. Having seen his designs become increasingly more popular, he expanded into fabric painting and textile art, with his work being displayed throughout the islands and exported to as far away as Sweden.

A chance meeting, and a reputation for detail, professionalism and razor sharp wit, led to his introduction into the world of performance art as the contracted promotional characters for Kentucky Fried Chicken and PEPSI. Seeking to validate this newfound calling, the fiery Leo attacked the local theatre community, performing in productions such as “Black Comedy” “Whose wife is it anyway?” and “To hell wit dat” which went on to perform at the 9th Annual World AIDS Conference held in Berlin. It was this International exposure that fueled his comedic appetite.

In ’95 he teamed with fellow thespian Clifford Learmond to create a sketch comedy duo called “Two drinks minimum,” which proceeded to take over their country in a comedy coup d’etat. Writing, producing and starring in such shows as “Life in a brown paper bag” “Cracking up on D Rocks” “Comedy Lane” and “Two cobeaux and a sponge cake,” their meteoric rise culminated in MC duties at the International Exposition held in Trinidad in 1996.

Having exhausted his growth potential in the islands and armed with a desire to further his education, Marc packed his bags and migrated to Toronto, Canada. Within months of his arrival he was invited to perform on the routinely sold out “Nubian Disciples All Black Comedy Review”, held at Yuk Yuks Super club in downtown Toronto (the world’s largest chain of comedy clubs). A standing ovation the first time on stage, proved to him that uprooting his family had not been in vain. He became a regular feature thereafter, which gave him the opportunity to open for such international acts as Doug E. Fresh, Tommy Davidson, and Dave Chappelle. His popularity on this show was a catalyst for invitations from across Canada, the U.S.A and the UK.

Television was inevitable, and in Aug ’01 he landed a spot as a featured comedian on Canada’s Comedy Network on “After Hours with Kenny Robinson”. Soon after, he made history by becoming the first Canadian comedian to appear on BET’s Comic View (03 season), and was voted Best Comic ’04 at the Soul’d Out Comedy Festival held in Toronto, Canada.

He is a consummate professional whose versatility has made him a favorite in a variety of venues across the globe. With material ranging from the subtle to the most shocking, he lives by his mantra, “Honesty in comedy.”
