Audible Editor Reviews

Los Angeles-raised comedian Marquez the Greatest connects with the crowd through inclusive humor about class and racial differences in Under the Influence.

Marquez’s humor is often provocative. He describes the conspiracy to kill low-income people through malt liquor. "Think about it," he asks, "what other brand of beer where you can get a six-pack for a dollar?" Once homeless, Marquz also offers a hilarious redefinition of people who are "in denial" about their living situations: "If you living with you parents, you homeless…fellas, if you living with a woman and your name appears in none of the bills, guess what? You homeless!"

Fans of comedy along the lines of Chris Rock and Eddie Murphy will appreciate Marquez’s high energy, moral authority, and emphatic delivery.

Publisher's Summary

Marquez the Greatest (known on Planet Comedy as King of the Underground) began as a seed planted in the fertile streets of Los Angeles. He began smoking stand-up comedy with one goal in mind - to make people laugh. But it has evolved into hilarious, philosophical blunts through which the pain of life generally, and his life specifically, is turned into the chronic high of laughter.

With Marquez's potency now recognized, he remains firmly planted in the L.A. sun under the Hollywood stars and continues to crystallize. The influences of Muhammad Ali and Richard Pryor are detectable, but the Greatest's brand of humor is all his own.
