ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MARQUEZ THE GREATEST was selected as a stage name because it states who he is and what he desires to achieve-GREATNESS. Like all those who have made their life work synonymous with their names, Marquez has a mission. A mission coupled with a deep understanding of the Comedian's purpose. That mission? (which he chose to accept) Was assigned to him, one night after a show, when a man came up to The Greatest and said "I planned on committing suicide, but you made me LAUGH so hard. I realized that everybody's going through something." That's when it became clear that the REAL REASON peoople come out for entertainment is for a mental break from their "problems" i.e. "LIFE". As a result the once simple goal of "making people laugh" became his mission. To shed the light of Laughter upon those in the darkness of depression and disappointment, is Marquez's commitment. THE COMMITMENT is to EVER BEING THE CLOWN. The "FOOL" to the Royal Court of his rapidly growing fan base.

The influences of Muhammad Ali, Richard Pryor, and George Carlin are detectable but his brand of humor is all his own. Now residing in Los Angeles, Marquez can be seen at well-known Comedy Clubs as well as Comedy Showcases across the Country.

Funny with a capital FU
This muthafucker is funny. Period.

Marquez will tell you right from the opening of his act to “enjoy your life!”; that the secret to dealing with the state of the world (he uses various expletives to describe it in detail) is to try and appreciate the good things in life and not be too hung up on the seriousness of it all. It’s impossible to argue with him, especially when he has you rolling in the aisles over topics that, at face value, are either quite serious or just normally, plain uncomfortable. But with his perspective, there is no topic without a slant of humor and deserving exploration. From racism to drunk driving to homelessness to intimate relationships and what men really want, Marquez demonstrates that laughter and humor can be one of the most insightful ways to revisit a topic and see it in a new- if not oh-so-bluntly-human- way. One of the funniest stand-up comedy CDs we’ve received in years, this live adult show leaves no man, woman or race untouched by his saucy humor. Even after repeated listens, his style and delivery act like formaldehyde on his jokes.
