Markus's career began almost 15 years ago as a bartender in a small dinner theatre in Vernon, B.C. One night, one of the male leads failed to show up for the performance, and the owner of the dinner theatre said to Markus, "Here are the costumes, here's the script, you're on in ten minutes!" He hasn't left the stage since. Markus became an icon, and perhaps the most integral member to ever grace the stage of that dinner theatre, elevating its success to a level unimagined by its founder, and now former owner, Marilyn "Maz" Gering. During his career, he has portrayed literally hundreds of hilarious characters ranging from a lonely poinsettia plant named Percy to The King of Rock and Roll himself. As well as being an unmatched performer, Markus' understanding and execution of comedic timing is unbelievable. Markus's talents have been appreciated all across Canada, as he toured with "The Legends of Rock and Roll" as Elvis Presley to sold-out crowds everywhere. He frequently crosses the border into Alberta to perform at several different venues throughout the province, and has developed an enormously dedicated following there as well. Markus has also appeared on numerous television shows and commercials, but his first and foremost love is the stage. His most proud accomplishment, on an already long list, is the opening of The Giggle Dam Dinner Theatre - a long time dream that has finally come true!
