Corporate Comedian, Inspirational Speaker, and Emcee
A former corporate lobbyist and nightclub performer, Mark Mayfield is one of America’s finest humorists. It’s seldom that you find a really funny, clean comedian and it’s seldom that you find a really good, captivating speaker. It’s nearly impossible to find one who is both. Mark Mayfield is one of the rare individuals in the world who is equally accomplished at performing comedy shows or delivering high content keynote speeches.
Clean Corporate Comedian

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 the President of the United States on a live, nationwide television broadcast.
Raised on a farm in Caney, Kansas, he received two degrees from Kansas State University and served as National President of the Future Farmers of America. He has spent time as a high school teacher, a corporate lobbyist, was partner of an innovative golf instruction facility, was a professional model and spokesperson in print and television commercials, and owned a top rated nightclub. He obviously struggled with holding down a job.
Mark is author of several business books and two joke books including his latest Morph, a guide to accepting and managing change. His also the author of the popular book, Mom’s Rules, a comedic yet poignant look at those things Mom said to us as kids, and he makes nearly 100 presentations annually to a wide variety of corporations, conventions, and trade associations.

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.
