Laugh to the Top: A Hilarious Guide to Achieving Your Goals
Mack’s no nonsense formula for achieving goals is simple but entertaining, so his listeners walk away enthused, saying: “I can do that!” Mack’s philosophy is "when they're laughing, they're listening." And one sure way to get a group to laugh is to create custom comedy specifically for them, which he weaves into every presentation. Give your group what you know they want: the motivation and inspiration to achieve their cherished goals—and a welcome break from “serious” business.

    Biography Read more

    As a killer clean comedian or hilarious motivator, Mack Dryden is a guaranteed hit, as hundreds of thrilled clients will attest. This veteran of The Tonight Show and former staff writer for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher creates custom humor for every client and inspires with his tales of surviving two battles with cancer, a stay in an African prison, "sharks in showbiz who stab you in the front," and one "near-fatal marriage."

    Several years ago, after hearing of Mack's harrowing survival stories, a friend asked him to speak to a group of graduating students. Mack's presentation was so moving and funny that he was asked to speak to other groups, and since then has shared his inspiring story and unique, clean humor with thousands at corporate and association meetings nationwide. His ability to create custom comedy constantly amazes. As one client put it, "You took a dry subject like manufacturing software and made it funny, like you'd been in the industry yourself!"

    From humble beginnings as "the funniest paper mill employee in Mississippi," Mack earned a black belt in karate even as he was earning his Masters in Creative Writing. He won two Associated Press writing awards as a reporter in his home state, and finally became a professional comedian whose talent and perseverance landed him numerous TV appearances and got him hand-picked by Bill Maher to write on the acclaimed show. Now he spends his time writing and traveling the country bringing his special brand of Motivation, Inspiration and Jubilation to thousands each year. It hasn't been an easy road; but, as he says, "Falling on your face is still moving forward!"
