Mack Dryden


Led by his dreams, Mack climbed from working in a Mississippi paper mill to performing stand-up comedy on The Tonight Show with both Johnny and Jay and numerous other TV shows, to acting in movies with such stars as Karl Malden and Keith Carradine, to being hand-picked by Bill Maher for the writing staff of ABC's Politically Incorrect. He has polished his uniquely engaging style over two decades as a comedian, actor and writer, and his philosophy is "when they're laughing, they're listening."

As funny as it is motivating, Mack's presentation Laugh and Leap to Your Goals will inspire your group to set realistic goals and leap toward them with confidence and never give up: "Falling on your face," he says, "is still moving forward!"

Useful tools and belly laughs are plentiful in Accepting Change with a Chuckle, a dynamic speech on a dynamic topic! Mack will remind your group of the dramatic changes they've already seen: "Remember when a 'passenger-side air bag' was your brother-in-law?" Once he's got them laughing, he'll share the proven methods and practical tools your group needs to accept and even embrace change in the workplace and the world.

Get your meeting moving! A sparkling host, Mack is a seasoned pro who knows how to keep an audience energized and engaged. Awards Shows are his favorite because "you never know what's going to happen with people coming onstage — it's spontaneous and a lot of fun."

Humor customized for your group! Imagine being treated to an "opening monologue" written specfically for you and your business, and drawing from shared experiences at the meeting itself: "How about those bargains in the mini-bar in your hotel room! Where else can you get a drink and a bag of chips for only 23 bucks!" Writing for Politically Incorrect sharpened Mack's amazing ability to quickly create TV-clean humor out of any situation.
