Marc was born in Queens, NY and grew up in the northern suburb of Mahopac, NY. Marc went to Monmouth College, and then he went to work on the Clearwater Sloop, the environmental sloop started by folk singer Peter Seeger. Marc was the cook for two years and then became the first mate. It was on the Clearwater that Marc got his Captain's license and learned to juggle and entertain kids. He moved to Boston, where he studied clowning and mime and became a street performer known as Marco the Clown; it was here that he met his clown partner Sunshine Sean (a.k.a. Sean Morey). Marc and Sean performed on the Bicentennial Barge, touring the waterways of New York State. From 1977 through 1979, Marc lent a smile to the streets of New York City, where he performed outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, twice working with Robin Williams. To get out of the cold, Marc auditioned at the Improvisation comedy club and immediately became a regular there, as well as at clubs like The Comic Strip, Catch A Rising Star, and The Comedy Cellar. In 1980, he made his national network television debut as a regular on Saturday Night Live. In the following years Marc appeared on many top-rated television shows. (See TV credits for complete list). Marc created and hosted the popular daily children's show Nickelodeon Weinerville, which ran on Nickelodeon from 1993-1996. Marc created and starred in a series of educational interstitials for Nick Jr. called Wordville with Marc Weiner and Friends. In the UK, Marc starred in Trebor Mighty Mints commercials.
