If you are looking for someone who knows the meaning of the word "no" then keep looking because if you ask anyone who knows him, Maronzio Vance refuses to acknowledge the word even exists. Making people laugh for as long as he can remember, this witty, sarcastic, storytelling North Carolina-born comedian/actor (who also refuses to accept the fact that he comes from the South because his state starts with "North") once waited in a men's bathroom for two and a half hours for a chance to meet the Kings of Comedy.
If you haven't seen him in any local bathrooms, you may have seen him on The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Jamie Foxx’s Laffaplooza on Comedy Central, Wanda Sykes: Wanda Does It, Last Call with Carson Daly, writing for The Boondocks or Last Comic Standing. People can mistake his comedy and conversation as being sarcastic, but let him tell it: "When I started out I asked Steve Harvey the key to becoming a good comedian. He paused and told me how much his suit cost. I can only give what I'm given. See you in the restroom people."
I don't ask people without arms to point me in the right direction -Maronzio Vance
