About the Film

Who doesn't love Marc Summers? Maybe the former cleaning crew at Nickelodeon Studios Florida.

For those who somehow missed him as the host of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare and What Would You Do?, there he was again hosting Unwrapped on Food Network for more than a decade.  With the rushing wave of 80s/90s nostalgia continuing to crest, it’s no wonder that Summers is still broadcasted into the living rooms, dorms, and computer/mobile screens of Americans everywhere by special guest starring on shows such as WorkaholicsRobot Chicken, or Guy's Grocery Games.


Simply put, Marc Summers is the television icon of our time.​ Summers’ seemingly chaotic, rapid-fire lifestyle – crowded by countless celebrity friends and colleagues – drives On Your Marc, a rousing, celebrity-packed, feature-length documentary about the messiest man in show business.

Follow Marc Summers as he stars in his latest and most challenging project: an intimate, one-man theater show called Everything In Its Place: The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers.

Starting with his childhood days on early TV … to forever changing television history with some of the very first programming specifically for kids … to his challenges with his (much overhyped) OCD and overcoming five years of cancer … all while hop-skip-and-jumping across the nation to juggle his work and growing family ... we double dare you to keep up with Summers in On Your Marc.


"Reboots and Nostalgia In Full Force"

... Marc Summers has been busy for the past 30 years. He helped discover Guy Fieri, the Mayor of Flavortown, on The Next Food Network Star. He opened up about his journey with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in a documentary called On Your Marc. But for most kids of the late '80s and early '90s, he is the handsome host of Double Dare who made picking your nose entirely acceptable. Now, at a time when reboots and nostalgia dominate culture as a whole, Summers is back with a reminder: it's still ok to pick away ...

... “I came out of the womb knowing exactly what I wanted to do. I’m one of the few people who had a passion from a very young age,” says Summers, who soaked in every minute of classics like The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson and The Ed Sullivan Show. “I would watch these things and live vicariously through them and say, how do I do that? How do I get on stage?” he says ...

... At 67, Summers is plunging ahead in a career that’s been perhaps one-third slime, one-third Food Network, and one-third sheer toughness. The veteran game-show host left the stand-up circuit in the mid-’80s and rose to fame as the face of Nickelodeon’s Double Dare, and then What Would You Do?, before switching networks and adding producing to his résumé ...

"Marc Summers Talks On Your Marc"

... “Double Dare did not start the network, but it definitely helped to launch it into the stratosphere and allowed it to become this billion-dollar entity,” Klickstein says. “The energy that Marc brought to that really helped Nickelodeon become what it is today.” One thing his fans connect with is Summers’ lack of ego. He realizes that, to many people, he remains at most a vaguely familiar “that guy” (if not from Double Dare then perhaps from hosting Unwrapped, the longest-running show on the Food Network) ...
