It's seldom that you find a really funny, clean comedian and it's seldom that you find a really good captivating speaker. It is nearly impossible to find one who is both. Mark Mayfield is one of the rare individuals in the world who is equally adept at performing stand up comedy or presenting high content speeches. He excites, educates, and always entertains. Known as "The Corporate Comedian", he has shared the stage with celebrities like Paul Newman, Peter Frampton, Colin Powell, and Bob Newhart and has introduced the President of the United States on a live, nationwide television broadcast. He delivers over 100 presentations annually to conventions, trade associations, and Fortune 500 companies and is the author of the popular book, "Mom's Rules", a comedic yet poignant look at all those things that mom said to us as kids.
Raised on a farm, he received two degrees Magna Cum Laude from Kansas State University , served as National President of the Future Farmers of America, and spent time as a teacher, lobbyist, and nightclub owner. He is also a professional model and spokesman seen in print and television commercials. These experiences coupled with being the father of two daughters enable him to relate to all types of people. A national convention planner recently called Mark "one of the very few, really funny, inspiring men in America today".
