After the legendary Bernie Mac saw him open up on a comedy tour, he pulled Marvin Dixon aside and said, “Man, you’re funny.” After sitting down and talking to him more, Bernie excitedly predicted the stand-up comics future. “You’re going to be just like me,” he said. As Bernie noticed, when funnyman Marvin Dixon hits the stage, let the crowd beware. This jokester’s wisecracks and punchlines will literally have you crying in laughter. Hailing from Miami, FL, his longstanding comedy career is a testament of hard work, dedication and sheer talent.
Ironically, Dixon got his stand-up start by literally being thrown onto the stage at age 19. Unbeknownst to him, a family friend signed him up for an Amateur Night at a popular Miami venue. After succeeding with his first joke and ultimately avoiding the inevitable boo off the stage, he realized he had something – he was funny. So in almost an instant, he went from slinging luggage at the airport and entertaining his coworkers to pursuing comedy full time to entertain the world.
Since then, Dixon has gone on to win every comedy competition he’s ever entered, including the Bay Area Comedy Competition which is the largest and one of the most prestigious battles in the country. His knack for finding humor in real life situations coupled with his bold style has also taken Dixon to comedy clubs and main stages across the country. Like appearing on the world famous Apollo stage, changing his routine on the fly after several other comedians were booed, and sending the crowd into a roar leaving the producers and hosts alike asking how did you do that? Describing his style as “fearless,” Dixon warns that you never know what he’s going to say. “I’mma say it if it’s funny. I’ll worry about the consequences later,” he says. Fearless is right. His no holds barred comedic jabs have become an infectious part of his routine that fans crave.
