Marcus’ abrupt departure was not revealed by GQ.
Marcus Combs was a legendary comedian who had a huge impact both internationally and in his own America.
He became popular for Mommy Lounge Network Presents Ashima Franklin’s Comedy Show (2021), BET’s Comicview (1992) and Def Comedy Jam (1992).
Marc began his comedic career while playing football for the University of Langston, but was involved in a vehicle accident that hurt his foot.
He claimed that while resting in a hospital bed, he developed a passion for stand-up comedy.
“I’d won class clown for the second year in a row, and I was sick of everyone telling me I needed to be a comic. So, once I recovered, I went looking for an open mic “.
Def Comedy Jam concerts influenced Marcus throughout his peak years in the profession, he added.
Marcus mentioned in one of the exclusive interviews that he used to sneak into his father’s studio and listen to Richard Pryor’s recordings on wax.
“Then came Eddie Murphy’s film ‘Delirious.’ On Betamax, we saw that nonsense. ‘Get out of here,’ my folks would say. This is something you can’t watch, youngster.’ ‘OK, cool,’ I say.
I’ll watch it while you’re at work tomorrow.’ I’d then go to school and make Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor jokes. As a result, humor has always been a part of my life “.
