Mac Duffy Biography
Mac Duffy is an Interactive Storyteller, Motivational Speaker and Comedian with an extensive background in comedy & Improv. His passion for helping families connect to the best information and resources led to his four years serving as Editor-in-Chief of the Los Angeles Family Magazine. Now he is back to his main passion: encouraging both children and adults to reach their greatest potential through his own unique and entertaining live performances.
Motivational Presentation Details
During his over 15 years of experience entertaining and inspiring people of all ages as Storyteller, MC, comedian, puppeteer, teacher, writer, and motivational coach, Mac has developed a technique that immediately brings shy children (and adults) out of their shells, inspires energetic ones to focus, and gets every member of the audience involved in learning and sharing their common story as they journey toward a better understanding of themselves, each other, and the world we live in.
Mac's philosophy is that we are all brilliant creators, but sometimes we need help to become fearless creators, able to share our gifts openly, filled with joy and without hesitation. With his warm ability to connect with all children of all ages on their level, Mac is able to bring out their greatest hopes and helps them call out their fears and face them, all in a fun and team-oriented way.
Interactive Storytelling Details
Mac loves adventure. He's a bit of a clown, a teller of tall tales, and, basically, a big kid at heart who always gets an enormous kick out of doing everything possible to create the best experience for his audience. His specialty is improvising stories based on audience suggestions. Put him in any space, and he is unfazed. Hand him any prop, and he can incorporate it as an important element of the story, magical or otherwise. Audience members are not simply a source of ideas. They also become integral parts of each story as additional characters and/or the wind, rain, ocean, etc.
Whether at work or play, one-on-one or in front of a large audience, Mac is quick on his feet and readily adaptable to any situation, all the while maintaining the charmingly goofy boy-next-door quality that he is known for.

What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 30 - 90 minutes
Wireless Mic System
Although I can perform anywhere, I prefer to be in a situation that allows me to mingle with the audience during the performance or presentation, as my audience is an integral part of what I do and it's more engaging and fun this way. An example would be: rather than a bulk of chairs all together, I'd like to see one or two aisles that would allow me to reach more audience members in all areas.
