As a child he loved to sneak and watch Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, and Eddie Murphy, which later ignited his dream. He felt that becoming a comedian was inevitability due to him sharing April 3rd as the birthday of him and Murphy. Being that MS didn’t have a large market for comedy, he never saw himself pursuing it seriously.
After graduating from college, he relocated to the Washington, D.C. metro area where he took the stage for the first time in 2001. For two years, Marion performed a few times, but didn't take comedy as serious as he should have. After learning that his cousin, an aspiring rapper, was diagnosed with stomach cancer; he was inspired to work harder at comedy and to become one of the best comedians ever.
After years of honing his craft in D.C., he decided to relocate to Hollywood to take his career to another level and expand his screenwriting and acting career. He’s performing at clubs and showcases all over the country and has created a buzz for the Marion Kendrick brand of comedy. Marion has been invited to showcase his talent at Comedy Central’s Open-Mic Fight, The Bay Area Black Comedy Competition & Festival, Jamie Foxx's LAFFAPALOOZA Comedy Festival, and The American Black Film Festival. He's also performed standup on Bill Bellamy's Who's Got Jokes, HBO's "The Sumner Report", The Tom Joyner Morning Show, and Master P's Hoodstars of Comedy DVD. In 2006 he was selected as one of EBONY magazine's TOP BACHELORS which gave him even more delighted exposure.
