As a comedian who’s done thousands of shows in over 15 countries, Bob Marley is one of American comedy’s most seasoned performers. In 2010, he made history when he entered the Guinness Book of World Records by setting a new record for longest continuous stand-up routine at 40 hours. Yet in spite of all that time on the road and all that time talking, this native of Bangor, Maine, still has the unmistakable New England accent that’s long been a signature of his unique and reliably sharp comedic sensibility.
Marley has been entertaining audiences since his professional debut at a health fair in Maine in 1991. He went on to hone his skills in the comedy clubs in Los Angeles and Boston before touring widely in the U.S. and internationally.
In 1999, Marley was cast as a detective in The Boondock Saints, the Boston-set crime thriller starring The Walking Dead ‘s Norman Reedus, which became one of the era’s biggest cult hits. Marley reprised the role in the 2009 sequel The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. He also appeared as a stand-up on such shows as Late Night With Conan O’Brien, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Comics Unleashed and Comedy Central Presents.
Marley’s many comedy albums include 3000 Shows Later (1997), I’m Tellin’ You (2002) and Maine-iac on the Loose! (2008).
