Hilarious Standup Comedy
Mack is absolutely unsurpassed in his ability to rock an audience with belly-laughs until they're gasping for air and holding their ribs. And he's proud of the fact that he doesn't have to go "below the belt" to get howls of laughter: if he can't do it on The Tonight Show, he won't do it live onstage.

S.P. Richards Co.

“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.”

LIFE INSURANCE COUNCIL

"Mack did an outstanding job. He was funny, motivating, charming, NOT a prima donna and even socialized with us at the dinner the night before - a delightful surprise. He’s the genuine article, and there aren’t many of those around any more."

Northwest Public Power Assn

"When we (selected you, we hoped you'd) be entertaining, make our members laugh out loud, keep the subject matter appropriate and funny but not go "blue," and leave a message that resonates with our members. Your terrific presentation delivered on all of the above! What more can I say other than to highly recommend you?"

ESCROW INSTITUTE OF CALIFORNIA

"You did your homework and tied together our members with your unique style of comedy which left us rolling in the aisles. What impressed us most was the comfort we felt from the moment you came on stage, and you left us with a very meaningful message. It was a pleasure!"

Pfizer Meeting Coordinator

“I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the meeting. Your style and facilitation skills were just excellent, and your use of humor was quite appropriate. You helped us address a very serious subject in a fun and enjoyable manner and you related well to the audience. What more can I say? I hope we have the opportunity to work with you again."
