Folk humorist Mary Mack spends half her time convincing her Minnesotan mother it’s okay for her daughter to be a comedian and the other half touring the country in her sweet, 400 dollar Dodge Neon--affectionately referred to as “Street Heat.”
Mack and her mandolin sing-alongs, have been featured on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show, XM's National Lampoon's Comedy Network, and Minnesota's Polka Spotlight. After winning the 2005 California's Funniest Female Contest, she went on to appear in the Vancouver Comedy Fest (2007) and HBO's Andy Kaufman Awards (2007), Comedy Central's Live at Gotham and NBC's Last Comic Standing.
Mack started her career in Nashville, and now splits her time between Los Angeles and Minneapolis, where she recorded her live album "Either You Wake Up or you Don't" at her home club Acme Comedy Company.
Her endearing stage presence and off-kilter, musical surprises, stemming from her background as former music teacher and polka bandleader, make her popular in up to three non-adjacent counties in Wisconsin. So far, Wisconsin has purchased a total of twelve Mary Mack CD's, which bought enough coffee for Mary to create her MySpace page
