Tell Us a Joke, Piano Man 

Despite owning a pair of college degrees, Michael Mack chose stand-up comedy over advertising. “I’ve wanted to do this since I was a kid,” he says. Growing up in Florida, Mack continuously worked the creative side of his brain. “I always wanted to be a musician or a magician or a ventriloquist,” he says. “Anybody onstage fascinated me.” At first, he picked up a guitar, but when that didn’t pan out, he wrapped all his failed efforts into a stand-up show. These days, he talks about his old girlfriends, gets the audience involved in his act, and riffs on Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” by using audience members as the song’s characters. “I basically point people out and make fun of them,” he says. “That’s a lot of fun.”
