Marvin Phipps is a dedicated and experienced entertainment professional with more than 13 years of experience in show business. Known for his unique perspective on life in which he strives to see the positive in all of life’s unforeseen moments, Marvin has become a popular stand up comedian and an actor.
Born and raised in Chicago’s South Side, Marvin was the youngest of 9 children. He was raised by his single mother, and he credits his upbringing to his success as a comedian. Always known as the “funny kid” in school, it was clear from a young age that Marvin had a knack for jokes, laughs, and putting a smile on people’s faces.
In 2007, he realized that his story could serve as inspiration for his first go in the comedy world. He wanted to work on his delivery, his punch, and his persona, so he attended Second City, where he focused on sketch comedy and improvisation. From there, he took a few classes at Acting Studio Chicago and attended a number of workshops, such as Kim Hardin’s.
Throughout his career, Marvin has made appearances on the Kelsey Grammar television drama series Boss, along with the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. He’s toured the country to perform in comedy clubs throughout the states, and he’s also opened for Tracy Morgan at the Chicago Theater.
Today, Marvin remains as passionate as ever before about his comedy career. He loves working with aspiring comedians and actors who want to be heard and want to share their story – just like Marvin did when he was an up and coming entertainer. Marvin is always available for comedy appearances and TV appearances.
