Mark Klein

Comedian, After Dinner Speaker

Mark Klein knew early in his career that he had to apply business philosophies and a strong work ethic to his craft, which is why he has been a successful humorist and entertainer since 1979.

Mark Klein started doing comedy so that he could make extra money while he was pursuing an English degree at Colgate University. Soon after he graduated, he began touring the country, playing venues ranging from comedy clubs to large concert halls.

After more than 20 years of live appearances and network TV appearances, Mark Klein decided that it was time to bring his pro business message to those who would appreciate it most - business people. He now specializes in corporate humor speaking, performing for Fortune 500 companies such as Lucent Technologies and Brown-Forman, as well as smaller companies and business associations.

Corporate entities across the board, from mortgage bankers to auto parts manufacturers, are embracing the benefits of humor in the work place by hiring comedians and humorists to entertain and instruct their employees.

In addition to doing corporate entertainment, Mark Klein also serves as a banquet speaker, master of ceremonies and media spokesman.

Mark Klein opens his corporate performance with a rundown of the 10 commandments of humor, principles that will increase the likelihood of having fun and, therefore, reduce stress. Moreover, in a nod to humor, the 10 commandments contain 12 thoughts:

      1. Have fun, no matter what.
      2. Always go the extra smile.
      3. Be true to yourself.
      4. Be willing to laugh at yourself.
      5. Welcome your mistakes.
      6. Listen very carefully.
      7. Challenge all your assumptions.
      8. Expect the unexpected.
      9. Forgive often.
      10. Stay focused, but remain flexible.
      11. Act and interact.
      12. Celebrate everything.
