Host of executive producer of Double Dare
Marc Summers came out of the womb knowing exactly he wanted to do ... be on TV! Born and raised in Indianapolis, at age 12 he was a regular performer on a children's show. His next stop was as a weekend disc jockey at WBMP-FM in Elwood, Indiana. After attending college in Boston where he studied broadcast management, he moved to Los Angeles and instantaneously became a regular performer at the world-famous Magic Castle. Soon after he became a regular performer at The Comedy Store, then a warm-up announcer for numerous programs such as Star Search, Webster, Alice, SOAP and What's Happening Now. In 1986, after auditioning against 2,000 people, he landed the job as host of the program that put Nickelodeon on the map, Double Dare. He hosted Unwrapped on Food Network and was executive producer for both Dinner Impossible and Restaurant Impossible.
