“laugh at serious issues”

You never know what will happen these days with a comedian in a diverse group, especially a group made up mostly of engineers.  Robert Mac was able to get the audience to loosen up and laugh at several serious issues facing the United States, e.g., global warming and border security.

His ability to make fun of himself during the course of his routine helped everyone become more comfortable and leave the event with a smile.

“the journey of the joke”

You have to listen to Robert Mache sets up a scene and takes you with him on the journey of the joke.  Part of the fun is going along on this journey.

Robert Mac takes you along with him, delights you with imagery and kindly self-deprecation, and then pause.  Great comic timing, within the jokes and between them, never rushed, always time to appreciate the cleverness of the routine.

Robert Mac gives you time to laugh and time to reflect about how he took you to this funny place.

graduation speech

Robert delivered an extraordinary speech (delivered with a tailored humble, self-deprecating mannerism) at my daughter’s graduation party. His 20-minute speech combined powerful messages with a great deal of clean humor. It appealed to all 150 guests in attendance, from high schoolers to baby-boomers. We were also impressed with his professionalism and overall personality. Thanks, Robert!
