Who is Vincent Marcus?
Born on 23 September 1987, in El Paso, Texas, under the harmonic and balanced sign of Libra, Vincent Marcus is a 31-year-old American YouTuber, comedian, impersonator, former Vine star and social media personality. He rose to fame due to his array of funny videos on Vine in 2013 and ’14, and in fact during his peak, he was one of the top 50 Viners in the entire world. Once the website was discontinued, Vincent successfully focused on other social media platforms, and became a true viral superstar and a respected comedian.
Early Life: Growing Up in El Paso and First Contact with Comedy
There is not much information about Vincent’s early life or family; as a social media personality, he’s opted to keep his private life away from the public eye. This is an obvious sign of professionalism, and an indication that Vincent is completely focused on his career, as well as expanding his brand. We know that he was born into an American family, but some fans suspect he has Latin American roots, too. He has one sister, Amanda Ierardi. His infatuation with comedy was evident even in his middle school days – young Vincent was always impersonating his teachers and making funny noises during class, which would often result in him being summoned to the principal’s office. Instead of grounding him, his mom supported him and urged him to work on his comedic skills. At this time, Vincent also developed a love for one of the key elements of hip-hop culture – beatboxing.
Education and Early Career: UTEP and Working on His Skills
After matriculating from high school, Vincent enrolled at the University of Texas at El Paso. We know that he graduated in 2009, but he still hasn’t revealed his major or area of study. According to his Vincent himself, he got a job immediately after graduating, and didn’t even think about showcasing his aforementioned talent. In 2013, he regularly beatboxed and impersonated celebrities, so his friends convinced him to open a Vine account. Skeptical at first, Vincent didn’t upload many videos, but those he did share became viral. Impersonating rappers like Dr. Dre, Eminem and Snoop Dogg caught the attention of Viners across the globe, and he soon began getting millions of ‘likes’ on every post. One of his most popular Vines from this time was of him beatboxing the beginning of the popular Macklemore song “Thrift Shop”. Once he saw how “easy” it is to become a Vine star, Vincent felt encouraged to diversify his performance portfolio, and upload even more short videos.
Becoming a Star: Family Guy Impersonations
Ever since he was a kid, Marcus loved the tongue-in-cheek humor of “Family Guy”, a popular animated series created by Seth MacFarlane. ‘Seth always had an uncanny way of changing his voice and assuming multiple roles during one episode’, Vincent said in one interview. ‘His work definitely influenced me.’ Thus, he decided to pay homage to his favorite show and do some Peter Griffin impersonations, along with sporadic videos in which he tried to copy Brian’s voice. Fans were astonished by his performance, which caused Vincent to become even more popular, in 2014 reaching the 3.5 million-follower milestone, which led to him earning a spot on the “Top 50 Vine Stars” list.
Continued Success: Beatboxing, Pranks and More
Even though he loved hip-hop when he was a teenager, Vincent quickly realized that his beatboxing skills were good enough to move onto other genres. In 2015 and ‘16, Vincent focused on beatboxing and re-enacting legendary instrumentals using only his mouth and vocal chords, and his most viewed Vines included beatboxing sessions of popular songs by Skrillex, Diplo and other stars of the electronic music genre. Around 2016, Vincent also began featuring friends in his Vines, until the website was shut down. Subsequently, he moved to Instagram and began recording more prank videos, most of them centered around unpleasant and scary instances of waking his friends up. Fans noticed his knack for acting went much further than mere impersonations and funny videos, which gave Vincent another idea that benefited his career greatly.

Getting a Taste of Acting: Sanders Shorts and Holiday Breakup
Using his Vine and social media fame, Vincent managed to secure himself a number of acting gigs. Perhaps his most notable role has been appearing in 12 episodes of the popular TV comedy series entitled “Sanders Shorts”, which aired from 2013 to 2015, in which he played the roles of both himself and Peter Griffin, the protagonist of his favorite show, “Family Guy”. Subsequently, he appeared in the 2016 romantic comedy “Holiday Breakup”, which was actually a commercial disaster, slammed by critics; perhaps fortunately Vincent’s role was minor, a cameo appearance as a party attendee. Afterwards, in 2017, we saw him take a role in the comedic series “Rolf and Willie’s Machine of Awesomeness“, appearing in three of the show’s six episodes. His latest role is in the sci-fi animated series “Blame the Hero” about a criminal named Blame, who has to go back in time to save the world from a nuclear disaster; Vincent plays Blame’s friend.
Personal Life: Is Vincent Marcus Married? Does He Have Any Children?
Since 2014, Vincent Marcus has been in a relationship with Ana Morales Dulce, a Canadian-Colombian interior designer and social media star. It’s unclear whether they’re married, but they’re clearly living their best life. On their social media profiles, they constantly share photos from trips to places like Cancun, San Diego and Las Vegas. Vincent also has one daughter, born in 2013, who has appeared in his Vines and videos a few times. A private person, Vincent hasn’t revealed the identity of the mother, nor anything specific about his little princess. He and Ana are currently based in Los Angeles, California, where they’re working on their social media careers. They have a pet – a dog named Malibu, who is two and-a-half years old now.
Body Measurements: How Tall is Vincent Marcus?
There is no reliable information concerning Vincent’s height, weight or other measurements. By looking at his Vines and comparing his height to other people and objects, it’s safe to assume that Vincent Marcus is approximately 5ft 10in (177cm) tall. He has dark brown hair with eyes to match. As of mid-2019, he has no tattoos or piercings.
What is Vincent Marcus’s Net Worth?
According to several reputable sources, Vincent Marcus has a net worth of over $3 million as of mid-2019, accumulated through product sponsorships, popularity on Vine and Instagram, as well as radio appearances and his acting career. If he continues building his brand making clever business decisions, this amount will certainly rise in the foreseeable future.
Even though he saw the most publicity on Vine, after it ceased to exist, Vincent has managed to use other websites and social media platforms to engage with his audience. He has a seldom-used official YouTube channel, on which he mainly comments on occurrences in pop culture, but it still has 72,000 subscribers and has attracted two million unique views. On Facebook, he is much more active and 100,000 people follow his comedic work. Twitter is another platform on which he’s active, and he uses it to repost old Vines and interact with his fans – over 110,000 users follow him. However, he focuses most of his creative energy onto Instagram, on which he has 600,000 fans; he posts a new IGTV video every week. We know that he had a TikTok account, be he seems to have deleted it, despite comparing the popular website to Vine on one occasion. Even though most of his Vines are unavailable, you can watch them on YouTube, as a part of many fan-created compilations.
