Marcus G. Curry, better known by his stage name Mark Curry, is best remembered for his role on the ABC sitcom Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper as Mark Cooper, an ex-basketball player turned teacher. From 1992 through 1997, the actor starred in the series.
He began working at a drugstore after dropping out of college, where he honed a comic act that he often practiced on clients, according to IMDB. Curry was finally persuaded to try his stand-up performance at local comedy clubs by these clients, as well as his family and friends.
Curry began his stand-up career in Oakland and quickly rose to become the city’s most in-demand comic. As a comic, he was a huge success and established himself in the business. His performances cleared the path for comedy clubs all over the world to book him.
Curry rose to stardom as a stand-up comedian and then as one of the hosts of the syndicated series It’s Showtime at the Apollo in the early 1990s.
From 2012 to 2015, the comedian co-starred in all three seasons of Nick At Nite’s first original live-action family comedy series, See Dad Run.
On “The Wendy Williams Show,” talk show presenter Wendy Williams and the actor were frank as they took a trip down memory lane and opened up about their personal lives.
When questioned if he has a wife, he stated that he has never married but has been in a relationship for more than 30 years.
“I’m not married, but I’ve been with this lovely lady for more than 30 years.”
He has two children, ages 16 and 19, as well. His oldest daughter is in her first year of college, while his younger daughter is still in high school. Curry’s Instagram photos usually feature both of them.
Curry recently shared a photo from his oldest daughter’s graduation, in which she received honors and all A’s in her studies. He also announced that she is currently a full-ride scholarship recipient at CBU for academic performance.
Is Mark a lesbian?
Curry isn’t gay, as he claimed that he has been in a 30-year relationship with a woman he adores. The 60-year-old comic, though, is frequently confused with Mark Curry, an English television personality who came out as gay 15 years ago.
When he organized his “coming out party” and married his long-term partner in a civil ceremony, the television host came out publicly as gay. Curry debuted on the children’s television show Blue Peter on June 23, 1986.
Jeremy Sandle, the former Blue Peter host and chartered surveyor, had been together for ten years and shared a home, but he was not openly gay throughout his tenure on children’s television because he was afraid it would jeopardize his career.
