Marlon Davis

Marlon Davis appearing at this event

Marlon Davis is a bright young comedian, improviser and actor who embraces his work with energy and charm, embodying his characters and delivering his acute observational material with aplomb. His act is inspired from his upbringing, exploring Britain and tackling its social issues with skilful characterisations. Winner of the FHM Search For A Stand-Up Hero Competition in 2009. In 2006, he was a finalist in both the So You Think You're Funny and Laughing Horse new act competitions. Still a relative newcomer, Marlon Davis is like a breath of fresh air on stage, with an impish grin, boyish enthusiasm and an effortlessly open, confident style that instantly wins him friends in the audience. 'A compelling storyteller whose anecdotes carry the elusive stamp of urban authenticity' (The Scotsman).
