Marc Summers Biography

Walk down any street in America and you will discover people of all ages will stop Marc Summers to say hello. Whether it’s daytime or nighttime television viewers, many recognize this multi-faceted talent for his wide-ranging contributions to television in a career that has been successful both in front of and behind the camera.

Summers is a television personality, comedian, game show host, producer, and talk show host. He is best known for hosting Double Dare for Nickelodeon, Unwrapped for Food Network, and recently he was Executive Producer for both Dinner: Impossible and Restaurant: Impossible also for Food Network.

His early careers were as a radio disc jockey and a stand-up comedian; though he held various television production jobs before Summers' career was boosted in 1986, when Nickelodeon hired him as the host of Double Dare.

During an interview with Dr. Eric Hollander on Biggers & Summers, Summers revealed that he has obsessive compulsive disorder. Summers went public about his condition on various television shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Today Show. In 1999, Summers produced a VHS video box set with Hollander about his experience, called Everything in Its Place: My Trials and Triumphs with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Summers returned to Nickelodeon in 2000 as the executive consultant for Double Dare 2000, an updated version of his original show. Two years later, he was the executive producer for another Nickelodeon resurrection, Wild and Crazy Kids.

He returned to television as the host of more shows, including the Food Network series Unwrapped and the Game Show Network series WinTuition. In 2005, Summers became the host of Food Network's reality series The Next Food Network Star.

He is the subject and executive producer of On Your Marc, a documentary that chronicles his life and development of his one-man theater show.

Today, Summers runs Marc Summers Productions, one of the leading producers of reality television shows. Marc continues to entertain by making guest appearances on popular TV shows, doing stand-up comedy and will soon be launching his one man show in NYC.

Speaking Topics

    I discuss never accepting the word no! I talk about always wanting to be in the entertainment industry but not making it until age 34. I discuss starting my career as a professional magician and do a trick, followed by my days at The Comedy Store with Letterman, Leno and Robin Williams. I then discuss my dream to host tv shows, doing Double Dare and putting Nickelodeon on the map. Video footage is shown here. I then discuss 20 years at Food Network, discussing my OCD issues, and my classic appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay and Burt Reynolds. It is very positive and discussing how to overcome obstacles.
