When groups want a message with their merriment, Mack is the comedic motivational speaker they call. Creating hilarious customized humor for each client comes naturally to the former staff writer for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, who performed on The Tonight Show with both the late Johnny Carson as well as with Jay Leno. His stories of surviving two battles with cancer, a stay in an African prison, one "near-fatal marriage," and "the sharks in showbiz who stab you in the front" are as inspiring as they are laugh-out-loud funny. He's also a pro Emcee who can turn a dull awards show or general session into a memorable event.

Just listen to a few of his clients:

"The (award show) was a tremendous success, and Mack was the reason. He was professional, funny, and his mix of humor and sincerity was perfect. His presentation the following day was a wonderful mix of inspiration, motivation, personal insight, and rib-cracking humor." - Douglas Dougherty, President, Illinois Telecommunications Association

"From start to finish, the audience loved him...I heard nothing but compliments, PLUS he was very easy and pleasant to work with, a rare treat." - Pug Scoville, Tennessee Association of Realtors

"Mack has my recommendation for any group that wants a great, personalized message delivered in an entertaining, thought-provoking manner. He set the stage for our convention's success!" - Richard Dean, Exec. Dir., Air Force Sergeant’s Association
