"Monique and unique go hand in hand. This radio and television personality, writer and comedian is on a mission to make people laugh. Her comedy is the perfect balance of "a- ha!" and "ha-ha!"
Monique Marvez delights audiences in English, but could just as easily do so in Spanish. This chameleon-like entertainer's particular charm comes from her ability to read each audience and draw from her background, experiences, and vast body of material to deliver custom-made comedic performances.
Monique first exploded on the Miami comedy scene, and soon starting touring the country and eventually the world. She has appeared on HBO, Comedy Central, ABC, Montel Williams, PBS and numerous other television shows.
After a highly acclaimed nationwide tour, and a decade of performing throughout Europe, Marvez took her act to television appearing on PBS, Comedy Central and the Syfy Channel. Marvez developed a sitcom for NBC Universal, which provided the material for her Alma Award nominated Showtime Special, "The Latin Divas of Comedy".
Marvez has hosted numerous television and radio programs, and has graced the cover of San Diego Magazines "50 People To Watch." She has also been the keynote speaker three years in a row for "Women Who Move San Diego."
Monique was commissioned to develop a sitcom and write the pilot script about her rollercoaster love life by Dick Wolf Productions/ NBC Universal. She was nominated for an Alma Award for her Showtime Special, "Latin Divas of Comedy", of which You Tube clips have garnered nearly a million hits!
Barry Diller hand picked her to be the face and late night host of his Miami television venture WAMI, this resulted in two TV specials: Monique Over Miami and Lady Zings the Blues. Eva Longoria chose her to be one of the original members of the on going comedy troupe "The Hot Tamales Live!" and she hosted segments of Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve from South Beach.
Marvez soon found her way into the world of morning radio in Indianapolis at WENS. This lead to her winning the "Million Dollar Morning Show" contest conducted by San Diego's JackFM. Monique stands alone as the only person in the country to host a Jack FM show.
Monique is currently working on several original television projects and continuing to WOW audiences with her sharp stand-up comedy and amazing improv skills. She continues to headline at comedy clubs around the country and was selected as the spokesperson for Fox Sports for their VIP promotional tour. Her new book, "Not Skinny, Not Blonde" will be released later this year.
