Markus Bailey- a guy who knows that the way to the viewer’s heart is through their laughter.
Markus Bailey realised at a young age that he loved to entertain. He wanted to be in every production there was, whether it was on stage or in music videos. With his mix of cultural heritage, he has only one goal: to help the world smile.
Markus started studying acting at NISS and landed a job at a TV show for kids a short time after. At 19 he was the youngest ever to host a primetime tv show on Norwegian TV-channel NRK Super, and for two and a half years, Markus entertained all Norwegian families through national TV with kooky humor and dancing. This eventually led to him being named Blime-ambassador of 2014 – NRK’s anti-bullying campaign, which received a record high participation with over 750,000 children.
Markus has also been a participant in TV2’s «My Dance Crew» before moving on to being back stage presenter in «The Voice».
In 2016 he hosted «Idol» on TV2, and the same autumn he competed in the Norwegian version of «Dancing With the Stars», where he came in second.
But working with all of these shows does not change the fact that Markus Bailey is basically just a guy who knows that the way to the viewer’s heart is through their laughter.
In 2017 he landed a role in the musical «Book of Mormon» at Det Norske Teatret, where he'll be playing the role as General Butt-Fucking Naked. The show premieres in September.
