Native New Yorker, Marquis Hadley is an actor and comedian.

In 2016, finally tired of hearing from everyone that "you missed your calling... you should be a comedian... you're such a natural," Marquis hit the NY stand-up comedy circuit by storm. It was no surprise that his family and friends were correct in that he won the first contest he entered, "NY Best Upcoming Comedian," that was held at the Gotham Comedy Club. Within a short time frame, Marquis' quick wit, life reflections and dynamic-high energy performances has made him a crowd favorite with multiple appearances on "The Steve Aaron Show," at the Broadway Comedy Club, "The Clayton Fletcher Show," at the Greenwhich Village Comedy Club and "The V Spot." His natural gift to make you laugh your a** off has led to his hosting/headlining B.B. King Lucille's "Laugh Your A** Off" Comedy Brunch to be held on September 23rd, 2017 in Times Square.

Marquis has not limited his talent to stand-up comedy, his film credits include; Viral Beauty, Pecan Pie, Annie and Monster. He was recently cast in two upcoming films; Bad Blond Doctors and The Last Shot.

TV credits includes; Shades of Blue, Blue Bloods, Scorned Lovers and an international commercial for PICT Cake.

Marquis lives by the credo, "don't be afraid to share your gifts with the world," as he continues brings smiles and side-splitting laughter to all.
