Marcel turned his focus towards acting and landed the title role in the Broadway musical "Bring Back Birdie", the sequel to ‘Bye, Bye Birdie' which also starred the legendary Chita Rivera and Donald O'Connor. Although the show was short lived, Marcel walked away with rave reviews for his performance as Conrad Birdie.

Comedian/Actor Bill Kirchenbaur who was producing a new stage show called ‘Legends of Comedy' saw a video of Marcel's parody of "Jay Leno and immediately hired Marcel to do his tribute to Jay Leno. While performing at the Trump Castle in Atlantic City, the real Jay Leno heard about it, called Kirchenbaur and asked to see a tape. Within days Jay brought Marcel on the ‘Tonight Show' and featured him in a sketch about him being his Clone. The bit was such a hit that since then, they've brought him back four more times. Marcel and Jay remain friends to this day.
