Many of his clients would say that Mack Dryden is the funniest motivational speaker in the country. The author of “Making the Most of Foreign Prison–Or Anything Else” (Texas Review Press), he triggers gales of laughter with his tales of surviving a stay in an African prison, two types of cancer, and one near fatal marriage. His primary keynote, “Laugh to the Top: A Hilarious Guide to Achieving Your Goals,” is as inspiring and motivational as it is laugh-out-loud funny.
Mack delivers huge helpings of
merriment with his message. 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 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, and “the sharks in showbiz who stab you in the front" are as inspiring as they are laugh-out-loud funny. "The Funniest Two-Time Cancer Survivor in the Country," also rocks the house at dozens of Cancer Survival Celebrations every year.
His ability to create custom comedy constantly amazes. As one client put it, “You took a dry subject like manufacturing software and made it hilarious—like you’d been in the industry yourself!”
He's shared his inspiring story and clean humor with thousands at corporate and association meetings, and a typical response is, "You're the best we've ever had." Watch him in action on his web site and you'll see why the raves aren't exaggerated.
Mack is available to speak worldwide.
