It’s pretty simple what Mark Mayfield does: he talks about very serious stuff in a very funny way.
Mark has one of the most diversified backgrounds in the speaking industry having owned and operated several businesses ranging from livestock production to nightclubs to golf instruction, and also spent ten years as a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. and in thirteen state legislatures for a Fortune 500 company. That business experience combined with his work as a nightclub performer allowed him to create truly unique presentations. His tagline is simple: Solid Business Wisdom in a Brilliant Comedic Style. He is one of the rare individuals in the world who is equally adept at performing comedy shows or high content speeches.
He has received rave reviews sharing the stage with a wide variety of celebrities like Paul Newman, Peter Frampton, Colin Powell, and Bob Newhart and has introduced a President of the United States on a live, nationwide television broadcast.
Mark is author of several business books and two joke books including his latest “Morph”, a guide to accepting and managing change, and has spoken to a “Who’s Who” list of corporations, conventions, and trade associations over the past four decades. He was raised on a farm, received two degrees magna cum laude from Kansas State University, and taught school before he began his lobbying, business, and speaking career. He has received the CSP designation from the National Speakers Association and been inducted into their Hall of Fame.
He is happily married (although his wife is not) and is the proud father of two daughters. He is also the most annoying Grandpa on the planet.
From comedy shows to seminars, Mark’s philosophy is simple…say it with humor and people will take the message home. A national convention planner recently called Mark “one of the very few, really funny, inspiring men in America today.” Mark’s mom also said that once after a small bribe.

CAN I HAVE A SIDE ORDER OF SERVICE WITH THAT?
This light and lively program will help you see the customer’s perspective and examines issues like credibility, reliability, and responsiveness. You’ll understand the myths of customer service and see how to move your customers beyond satisfaction to advocacy.
This is clean stand-up comedy that’s perfect for after-dinner entertainment or as a change of pace. Sit back and hold your sides as we take a zany, offbeat look at everyday life. A non-stop, rollicking ride of humor you’ll be quoting for a very long time.
MASTER OF CEREMONIES…IMPOSTER
Mark can provide comedic professionalism as the emcee for your program OR he can pose as an official in some capacity. He has impersonated a Professor, IRS Examiner, Jeweler, Legislator, Salesperson, and Runway Model as he fumbled and bumbled through company doublespeak. After the spoof is revealed, he transitions into one of the above programs.
