His first directorial effort, a short film called “The Filchaks Take a Gamble”, a piece which he also wrote and costarred was called “funny… infectious… memorable” by filmthreat.com, one of the leading online movie review sites and this quirky, dark comedy was featured at film festivals including the Sarasota Film Festival and Cinequest online. Marc’s latest project, the eight episode first season of “Thespian”, co created with his wife Maria Unger, is currently available on Amazon and Amazon Prime.
As an actor, his television credits include appearances on Comedy Central and a guest appearance on the hit sitcom “Friends”. Most recently, Marc has landed a recurring role as a reporter on the new HBO series “VEEP” starring Julia Louise Dreyfus and has appeared on episodes during all four seasons.
Along with film, television and standup, Marc’s an accomplished theatre actor as well and has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with acclaimed television and film actors including Academy Award nominated actor John Hawkes, Paul Dooley, Jamie Denton, Billy Gardell, Annabella Fields and Frank Whaley. Theatre credits include Cowboy Mouth (directed by former “House” star Jennifer Morrison), a staged reading of “Den of Thieves” directed by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis as well as many other productions in Chicago, Los Angeles, NYC and Baltimore.

The serio-comedic piece explores Marc’s nearly two years struggle with major depression and his nightly visits to a local dive bar. It’s directed by Rain Pryor, daughter of the legendary comedian Richard Pryor and an acclaimed actress in her own right.
