Marshall loves to perform stand-up comedy for recovering addicts. Of all the shows he has performed all over the world, his recovery comedy shows are his favorites.
Being in active addiction is such a ridiculous, illogical way of life, that the simple truths of addiction are comical in their own right. Marshall hopes to show other recovering addicts, especially the new comer, that there IS life after drugs and alcohol… a much better way of life.
Marshall is very humbled to be able to carry the message of recovery while performing stand-up comedy at conventions, rehab centers, conferences, half-way homes, and anywhere else addicts need a laugh. Most of his comedy show is not about being in a 12 step program, but they are from an addict’s perspective. He closes all his shows at comedy clubs with his 12 step jokes because a) it is some of his best material, and b) it helps carry the message of recovery.
Marshall’s comedy is considered edgy and smart while not being offensive. He pushes the envelope while not being divisive and he can walk this line because his comedy comes from a place of love. Sure, he knows that sounds corny, but it is how he can say some of the things he says and make people laugh instead of walking out of the show.
