Marks was best known for appearances on American television series in the 1960s, particularly Dick Van Dyke, The Dean Martin Show and Merv Griffin shows. He appeared as a regular cast member in the first 19 episodes of the 1962-63 season of The Joey Bishop Show. In the 1965-1966 television season, Marks co-starred as Ed Robbins, a former U.S. Army sergeant, with John Forsythe in the role of Major Joe Foster in the sitcom, later changed to a drama, The John Forsythe Show on NBC. He also appeared in a number of films, including Peeper, Train Ride to Hollywood and Don't Miss the Boat. He was featured as the American Indian "Pink Cloud" in the 1967 ABC comedy Western, Rango, starring Tim Conway.

He attracted international attention with the surprise novelty hit song "Loving You Has Made Me Bananas" (also remembered by its lyric "Your red scarf matches your eyes"), recorded in May 1968, but parodying the medleys and other popular music conventions of the big band era. A re-release did similarly well in 1978, reaching number 25 in the UK Singles Chart.

Marks continued to perform into the 1980s, featuring in the sitcom You Again? as Harry, his last significant role.

He died on 28 November 1987, in Brigantine, New Jersey at the age of sixty-four.
