Rockland — Comedian Bob Marley will perform a show to benefit the Class of 2013’s Project Graduation Wednesday, March 13, at 7 p.m. at Oceanside High School (East), 400 Broadway. Tickets are $15, available at Oceanside East and West (Thomaston); Harborside Market & Gardens in Tenants Harbor; Planet Toys in Rockland; and Thomaston Grocery.

Celebrating more than 17 years as a stand-up comic, Marley has been featured in his own special on Comedy Central and is one of the few comics to do the complete late-night TV circuit. A Maine native and University of Maine at Farmington graduate, Marley uses biographical and observational material for his high-energy routines.

Marley began his career in his hometown of Portland, then moved to Boston to gain experience in a city known for spawning comedy all-stars. A regular at the Aspen and Montreal comedy festivals, he has appeared in several films including the cult favorite "Boondock Saints."

Marley’s latest recordings are a CD/DVD, "Wicked Funny": and the CD “Guinness World Champ.” In autumn 2010, he set a new Guinness World Record for Longest Stand-up Comedy Show by an Individual by performing for 40 hours to raise more than $12,000 for the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center in Portland.
