Marshall Chiles

Marshall Chiles is an A.C.E. – Author, Comedian, Entrepreneur. He is also a dad, so he is really A.C.E.D. But first and foremost he is a husband, so I guess he is really a H.A.C.E.D. And with all that, he still fits in time to mentor other kids. So at the end of the day, Marshall Chiles is H.A.C.K.E.D.


He started stand-up comedy in 1999 and quickly became a road comic. He also quickly realized that for most one-nighter road gigs in the south, the worst thing that could happen is that they ask you back. He then made the goal of doing stand-up comedy while sleeping in his own bed at night. In 2002 he bought The Funny Farm Comedy Club in Roswell, GA that was inside an entertainment complex called StarTime Entertainment… which was like Dave and Busters if Dave was a crystal meth head. StartTime was closed in April of 2009 which meant no more Funny Farm Comedy Club (thank goodness). Since Marshall had seen the writing on the wall, in February 2009 Marshall opened the world famous comedy club called The Laughing Skull Lounge. Yes it is world famous because it is in this world and now even you know about it.

In 2010, Marshall started The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival which is considered by the industry to be the number one discovery comedy festival in North America. He is the producer and head writer for ‘Laugh Your Ads Off’ which is an annual comedy contest for ad agencies. He has also written for other professionals to make them funny in order to come across as less uptight.

His first book is called Your Presentation is a Joke: Using Humor to Maximize Impact.’ YPIJ is now a textbook at the University of Alabama, which just means it has lots of pretty pictures in it.

His second book is a children’s board book called Cool Kids Share.’ He came up with the concept when his son was four years old paying on a playground. This one kid did not want to share and his wife said, “It’s ok that the kid does not want to share.” Marshall said, “No, not really. That kids is being a dick. Only cool kids share.” And then BAM, 10 years later he wrote the book. He is currently writing a whole series of cool kid books.

His third book is children’s book for adults called ‘My Colonoscopy & Me: A Love Story.’ He wrote the first version of this book as a poem while sitting in the waiting room of his first colonoscopy. Sign up here to be on the list for when he publishes it.

As you can see, Marshall is building a comedy empire to pass down to his children so they can run it into the ground.
