Marty Simpson doesn’t look like an All-American Football Player, a sports radio talk show host, or the only white guy selected to appear on a BET comedy special. Let’s be honest, he looks like Dr. Phil's heavier brother. Yet, he’s all of these things. Plus, Marty is a stand up comedian who has quickly garnered national recognition after becoming the winner of the 2012 Clean Comedy Challenge. Since that time, you may have seen Marty opening for Saturday Night Live's Dennis Miller (if you were at that one show, that one night), Tim Hawkins, Pauly Shore, and Last Comic Standing Winners, Jon Reep and John Heffron.
Today, you can see Marty’s comedic work on a series of successful online videos including the “Domination” series about his beloved South Carolina Gamecocks or the very cool "Pregnidgerator" infauxmercial.
Marty stays busy at live standup shows throughout North America and has performed in venues from the 3 thousand seat Durham Performing Arts Center, to Atlanta's Uptown Comedy Corner, all the way to Los Angeles' Flappers Comedy Club. Marty's performance venues include clubs, churches, fund-raisers, festivals, corporate functions, and the occasional rock'n roll tour. Marty’s updates on Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube keep his fans and two or three of his friends laughing everyday. Follow him on twitter @MartySimpson or find his other social media sites at the top of this web page.
Marty's act is filled with antics and adventures from his real life. Nothing is off limits. His wife, his kids, his dogs, his style of worship, his former college football playing days with the Gamecocks, and his awkward relationships with his African-American friends, all get discussed on stage.
