Born in East LA at White Memorial Hospital, this Mexican-Irish-Navajo (“Mexijo”) was adopted at birth by a Mexican mother and a Jewish father. Marc was a happy baby despite an unusually large head and knock knees that resulted in a childhood of orthopedic shoes and numerous falls. Marc attended 12 years of Catholic school where he gravitated towards sports as an excuse to wear tennis shoes.

While doing sports, Marc started writing for the school newspaper, developing his love of writing that still shows in his standup today. Marc continued writing at the University of San Diego where he served as sports editor while commuting regularly to the bars of Tijuana, Mexico.

Following graduation, Marc waffled between journalism school and law school before deciding to try his hand at screenwriting.

Throw in a neurotic Jewish wife, two home-schooled teenage daughters and 13 dogs, and you have a recipe for a comedy smorgasboard, served up Marc Yaffee style.
