Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist, Marty Putz, began his career in his hometown of Toronto, Canada. His popularity on the University & college circuit in both Canada and the US led to winning “Campus Comedian of the year”. An appearance at the Just for Laughs International Comedy festival landed Marty the hosting position on Fox’s Emmy award winning kids show “Not Just News”.
Prompted by the lure of agents and a better climate, Marty made the move to Los Angeles, where he has happily called it home for the last 20 years. However, he frequently visits the UK and Europe for performances and is always seeking his next excuse to fly over.
Appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, Fox’s “Comic Strip Live” and Comedy Centrals “Make Me Laugh”, continued to establish Marty in the world of comedy. His youthful style and infectious enthusiasm made an easy transition to encompass an audience of all ages making him a true family performer playing in sold out shows as far away as London, Cyprus, Australia and New Zealand.
Ever expanding, Marty Putz created, wrote and produced two seasons of the Canadian Gemini award winning television show ‘TheTournament’ for CBC Canada, a mockumentary comedy series loosely based on his beloved peewee hockey days. “The Tournament” garnered rave reviews from both The New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle. With the Cartoon Network, Marty created, wrote and starred in the television pilot “Marty’s Party”. In addition, he scripted a live action version of Marty’s Party for Cedar Fair Entertainment, which ran in multiple theme parks across North America. It was here that Marty’s whimsical imagination caught the eye of Can You Imagine…a premier manufacturer of novelty products. Together they created “Putz Gear” and have begun to make Marty’s inventive silliness available to the general public.
In 2014 Marty was enticed back into live performing when he was approached to headline “The RAZZAMATAZZ Comedy Show. This sold out 15 city tour was founded to raise money and awareness for the KIDS FOUNDATION OF AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND.
In 2018, Marty appeared on British television in the hugely successful talent competition, Britain’s Got Talent, where he wowed all four judges with his zany physical comedy and reached the live semi finals, where he memorably covered Simon Cowell in toilet roll and soaked Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden!
