Biography

When groups want a message with their merriment, Mack Dryden is the comedic motivational speaker they call. Creating hilarious custom humor for each client 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, "the sharks in showbiz who stab you in the front," and one "near-fatal marriage" are as inspiring as they are laugh-out-loud funny. If anyone knows about overcoming adversity to achieve his goals, it is Mr. Dryden, and his proven 7-Step Formula is simple, practical, and inspiring.

After hearing of Mr. Dryden's harrowing survival stories, a TV producer asked him to speak to a group of graduating students. His presentation, "Laugh to the Top: A Hilarious Guide to Achieving Your Goals," was so moving and funny (he has made his living onstage for more than two decades) that he got immediate spin-offs and has since shared his inspiring story and unique, clean humor with thousands at corporate and association meetings nationwide.

From humble beginnings as "the funniest paper mill employee in Mississippi," Mack Dryden became an award-winning journalist, a black belt karate champion, and finally a professional comedian whose talent and perseverance eventually got him handpicked by Bill Maher to write on the acclaimed show. As a performer, he has appeared on The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, many other TV shows and movies, including JAG and a recurring role as a judge on ABC's The Guardian. His credentials as a Renaissance man were boosted in 2008 when a Canadian firm began the manufacture and worldwide distribution of his invention, the Canvas Keeper.
