Whether you’re looking to inspire the troops or just make them laugh ’til they hurt, Mack is a guaranteed hit, as hundreds of thrilled clients are happy to attest. He’s been delighting audiences for years with his relaxed stage presence, hilarious material, and uniquely engaging delivery. As a comedian he’s performed on dozens of TV shows, including The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno. As an actor he’s appeared in several movies and on many other TV shows, including JAG and a recurring role as a judge on ABC’s The Guardian.
Creating hilarious custom humor for each client comes naturally to the former staff writer for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, and his stories of surviving two battles with cancer, a stay in an African prison, “sharks in showbiz who stab you in the front,” and one “near-fatal marriage” are as inspiring as they are laugh-out-loud funny.
Several years ago, after hearing of Mack’s harrowing survival stories, a friend asked him to speak to a group of graduating students. Mack’s presentation was so moving and funny that he was asked to speak to other groups, and since then has shared his inspiring story and unique, clean humor with thousands at corporate and association meetings nationwide. His ability to create custom comedy constantly amazes. As one client put it,
“You took a dry subject like manufacturing software and made it funny, like you’d been in the industry yourself!”
From humble beginnings as “the funniest paper mill employee in Mississippi,” Mack earned a black belt in karate even as he was earning his Masters in Creative Writing. He won two Associated Press writing awards as a reporter in his home state, and finally became a professional comedian whose talent and perseverance landed him numerous TV appearances and got him hand-picked by Bill Maher to write on the acclaimed show.
Now based in Louisville, KY, he spends his time writing and traveling the country bringing his special brand of Motivation, Inspiration and Jubilation to thousands each year. It hasn’t been an easy road; but, as he says, “Falling on your face is still moving forward!”
While we don’t have an official ranking for the number of exclamation points included with customer comments, if we did, Mack would be the hands-down winner in the 14-year history of our event.
From start to finish, the audience loved him. Everyone enjoyed his sense of humor, and we all had many good (and much-needed) laughs. Thanks again for the recommendation.
His wit, humor, and message was well-received and certainly was a high point for our group. He tailored his humor to our audience and was rewarded with the well-deserved laughs.
“Mack’s was one of the most professional, funny, sincere and down-to-earth presentations that I’ve ever booked…In terms of my satisfaction, Mack is right there at the top of the list…I strongly urge you to recommend Mack to your clients who want to laugh and feel good about their lives. I’m seriously thinking about using Mack again for another client’s annual meeting next summer.”
