I am a professional performance poet who has been on many slam teams over the past decade and a half, been a TEDxBoston speaker and an avid actor for a prominent theatre in Rhode Island. I am skilled in communicating ideas and can function as a featured poetry act, or as a host. I have been hired as an emcee/performer for weddings, funerals and birthday parties, and I would be glad to provide my services to you and your event. I specialize in providing a unique and memorable experience. We will meet and discuss your exact needs, and I will always work to fulfill them. I also have several other individuals who I work closely with, who can assist with a variety of talents ...Peace.
Moving, powerful, and always current, Marlon’s writing and performance are second to none. A wonderful soul with a wonderful gift, he does not squander it, and honors all who hear his words. Not just a performance artist, he also works with school age children to brig them Shakespeare in a way only he can. We all need his artistry in our lives. Thank you Marlon!!
I have attended live and Zoom performances of Marlon's over the years. Every time, I am awed by his passion, skill, power, and wisdom. Marlon's ability to translate the issues of the world into engaging, beautifully-crafted, witty, poetic, and relevant pieces is, quite frankly, an example of perfection! Without fail, my soul is nourished from every one of Marlon Carey's performances.
Inspired, honest and impassioned!
I've enjoyed his poetry for years and while I have no talent of my own I'm a bit of a poetry snob. Marlon is truly an expert level wordsmith who entertains and teaches at the same time
Marlon performed at my wedding! He did a beautiful spoken word piece and an original song. He keeps audiences engaged and even invites them to participate. I would hire Marlon for any event that I want to make really special and memorable.
The teamwork between the filmmaker understanding the talent of the Rubix Cube, and of course, the unbelievable ability of Marlon Carey to personably deliver his intelligent poetry while simultaneously solving the Rubix Cube inspires students that electronic gadgets are not the only answer to free time. Further more, his gentle and informative references to social issues embedded in the poem make me wish every student (and teacher and medical profession) could see the work. There is much opportunity to make cognitive and critical thinking connections in a talk back.
Every April we invite a poet to Brookline High to help us celebrate National Poetry Month and Marlon was one of our all time favorites. He has presented during the day at student assemblies and small creative writing workshops and in the evening for the whole community. He is an inspiration and a Rubik’s Cube wizard. Highest recommendation!
Marlon is a chef with words. He gathers the ingredients, seasons them, cooks with fire or baked slow in the oven. At the end, you have consumed something fun, creative, and nourishing to your body. He is passionate, approachable, and gracious.
Marlon puts together a great show solo or as Shakespeare to Hip Hop, captivating kids as they identify characters, plot points, and irony while clapping hands and getting into call and response. For adults, he's highly entertaining too!
Marlon Carey is a true original. In addition to being incredibly talented he is kind, responsible and reliable—a powerful, inspiring, positive force for good! In over 40 years in the arts as a performer, teacher and administrator I have encountered few who rise to his level. You will not regret hiring Marlon!
I enjoy this performer so much! His work, both content and style, is palatable for all — all ages, genders, ethnicities — he is a poet for humans!
He is versatile in delivery, with the ability to flow effortlessly between Shakespeare cadence, to hard core rap. He works wonderfully with a band and improvisation.
I love this cat.
Marlon is captivating. You’ve got to check him out!
Fun, educated, talented, witty, and a gentle giant!
