Lee Marks, or Mr. Boston to those who’ve seen him in the VH1 reality show I Love New York, was born on Acton, a small town outside of Boston in Massachusetts, and, he points out, also the town where one of his comic idols Steve Carell grew up in. He has a twin brother and an older sister and they now live in Los Angeles, California. He finished high school in Acton-Boxborough High in 2000 and in 2004 a business degree in Bentley College, a small business school in the state. He has always been a comedian. Growing up, he realized that the best way to meet people is to make them laugh. Prior to his joining the reality show, Mr. Boston was an accountant. He also used to play a lot of tennis and danced to disco music. He said he had cheated on every girl he has ever dated.
Mr. Boston appeared as one of 20 contestants in I Love New York. This Bachelor-style dating show features Tiffany Pollard, better known as New York, in her quest to find true love. Friends encouraged him to try out for I Love New York in order to express his sometimes raunchy yet hilarious style of comedy. Apparently, he can tell the worst jokes, thus was eliminated on the show's sixth episode. He is remembered for his never-ending dorkiness, his lap-dancing and his constant nose-picking, which, he says he plans on seeing a hypnotist about. After the show, he has done several club appearances in Dallas, Phoenix, Miami, and other major cities in the US. He dreams of having his own show so he can quit his accounting job and do what he loves to do best: entertain.
Mr. Boston became known as one of the 25 contestants in the VH1 reality show I Love Money, which features returning contestants past VH1 reality shows such as Flavor of Love, I Love New York, and Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. The 25 competed in physical and mental challenges en route to a grand prize of $250,000. He was eliminated on episode 4 of the show, but he later returned to television with an appearance on New York Goes to Work.
