Marques Ray

Marques Ray first started performing as a singer with the R&B group "MFC." He later joined the Hip-Hop group "Hot-Squad," based out of Bakersfield, California. People thought it was a joke, even though he was dead serious, and continued to follow Marques, expecting a comedy show. You may have seen him on MTV's Wild N'Out, Nick Swardson's Pretend Time, Comedy Central's Krod Mandoon, Mind of Mencia, or at the grocery store as the guy who keeps getting asked where the avocados are, even though he doesn't work there.  He is one-half of the sketch team Marq N' Park, with Randall Park. He's also on the Maude team Tut. He is a Dodger season ticket holder and he loves his Grandma.
