Originally based in Miami, Monique Marvez is a standup comic known for her biting sarcasm and sardonic attention to gender issues. Her one-woman show, Loca Motive, played a variety of local clubs in southern Florida before it eventually caught the eye of Barry Diller of Silver King Broadcasting. Diller convinced Marvez to host her own show in the posh deco nightclub district of Miami Beach. Her fame in Miami grew and led the Ladyslipper release of her recorded debut, Built for Comfort, in 1997. The record features the best of Marvez's signature raunchy wit and sexualized sarcasm.
