About

Mack Dryden is simply one of the most powerful, inspiring, and hilarious motivational speakers in the US, as hundreds of thrilled clients like this one will gladly attest: “While we don't have an official ranking for the number of exclamation points included with customer comments, if we did, Mack would be the hands-down winner in the 14-year history of our event.”
--Sandra Williams, S.P. Richards Co.
Mack has survived everything from the sharks of showbiz, to bouts with two different types of cancer, to a terrifying stay in an African prison—and lived to tell inspiring, motivating and hilarious stories about it all in his most popular keynote: "Laugh to the Top: A Hilarious Guide to Achieving Your Goals."
As the funniest two-time cancer survivor in the country, he inspires and motivates at dozens of survival celebrations each year with his hilarious presentation, “Celebrating Cancer Survival: Live Happy, Laugh Loud.” Cancer survivors and care-givers howl with laughter and leave refreshed, thoroughly entertained, and re-energized to pursue new goals and lend support to victims of this cruel disease.
An engaging performer with a relaxed style, the writer/comedian/actor has appeared in several movies and dozens of TV shows including The Tonight Show with both Johnny and Jay, guest roles on "The Guardian" and "JAG," and--even though he disagreed with most of the host's political views!--was a staff writer for ABC's Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. Mack brings his vast experience to every performance, and writes custom comedy for every client, making his presentations even more special, personal, and memorable.
Mack prides himself on being able to "rock the house" regardless of how big or small that house happens to be. At a cancer survival celebration in Louisville recently, he chatted personally with all 25 participants, making each of them feel special. Only weeks before that, he performed at a slightly larger venue, and the planner who booked him had this to say: "Mack Dryden is a consummate professional, a very funny guy but - most important of all - one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. His tailored presentation for the Million Dollar Round Table Annual Meeting in Toronto had 9,000 attendees, from over 70 countries, literally crying with laughter. Only genius makes that happen! I would recommend Mack to any event organizer in a heartbeat. He's brilliant." --Sandro Forte, Main Platform Chair, MDRT
Whether your event is for 99 or 9,000, Mack is guaranteed to leave with sore ribs and full hearts.

I warned Mr. Dryden that our group of serious bankers would be a tough crowd to entertain. He assured me he'd have them laughing...and that he did! It took a little while for the crowd to warm up but I think the entire group enjoyed the evening. Thanks Mack!

Mack is an excellent communicator and put a program together that had a purpose with much audience laughter. The staff really enjoyed Mack's talents and were very complimentary.

Mack Dryden’s Response:

Thanks for the rave review, Terry! They were SO sweet and responsive, and I meant it when I said I think public school employees and faculty are unsung, under-appreciated heroes. I'm so glad I could lighten their hearts and inspire them to serve those kids with even more purpose and energy. All the best, Mack

Mack was absolutely incredible! He is an absolute delight to work with and brought so much laughter to our group. He is incredibly professional & a total trooper! In spite of bad weather delays that caused him to spend hours in airports and eventually arrive at our destination at 3 am, he was up after just a few hours of sleep & ready to perform for us. His positive, upbeat attitude was inspiring (especially since he had to turn around and head back to the airport where he again would be faced with more bad weather delays & eventually rent a car to head off in the wee morning hours to make it to his next gig with again only a few hours of rest!). He's amazing!

From the first email until the last Mack was delightful to work with. He was organized, talented, and willing to go above and beyond for our organization to make this event a success. As our keynote Mack had our entire audience doubled over in laughter, cheering for his success, and inspired to chase their own goals. We enjoyed every minute of his keynote address and we are so thankful we chose Mack for our event. We received so many compliments from our membership regarding Mack Dryden. He even was given a standing ovation, something that is few and far between with our membership! If you are on the fence, choose Mack! You won't be sorry!

Hey Stephen, Thanks for the positive review and high ratings. I know GigMasters limits you to very short comments. If you have time, I'd love for you to provide a short letter following the guidelines I sent you earlier. Thanks again for a terrific opportunity. All the best, Mack

We hired Mack to be our last speaker. This spot of any conference is always the most challenging. He was so great to work with in the planning stages and he delivered a FANTASTIC performance. Our members loved his story and his humor! Quite a feat! We highly recommend Mack for your event! Thanks Mack!
