Yuk Yuk’s founder and CEO Mark Breslin is currently available for speaking engagements! For booking, please contact Jeff Silverman: Jeff@YukYuks.com.
Comedy As A Way of Life
“You don’t just perform comedy; you live it. It’s something you do onstage and off; whether you’re in the business or not; and anyone with the nerve can do it.”
Adventures in Entrepreneurship
“Entrepreneurship isn’t just about money or success, it’s an extreme sport.”
Motivation For The Highly Unmotivated
Breslin offers a bracing, funny, but useful alternative to the usual motivational lecture. Utilizing his own experiences and case histories, he shows how you can sleep until noon, party like it’s going out of style, delegate the dirty work, and still be successful in your chosen field – if you choose the right field! Includes a debunking of The Secret and other so-called “positive thinking” seminars.
Mark has spoken at:
Association for Entrepreneurs
Toronto Borochov Centre
Canadian Mensa Society
Alberta Entrepreneurs Association
…and many more!
– Lecture with or without a PowerPoint presentation
– Best for charities, political organizations, associations, not-for-profits, students (colleges & universities)
About Mark Breslin
Mark Breslin has built a career and world class reputation in Canadian Comedy. In 1976 he opened the first Yuk Yuk’s comedy club and it has since grown into the largest chain of stand-up comedy clubs in North America. Some of the most successful comedians today such as Jim Carrey, Howie Mandel and Norm MacDonald got their start at Yuk Yuk’s.
No topic is off-limits for Breslin, and audiences will be impressed with his quick wit and irrefutable magnetism. Breslin is cheeky in his approach, but listeners can’t help but absorb lessons about success in a tough business, and how to find the humour in any situation. Breslin has expanded his interests to include being a TV and radio writer, producer, talk show host and best-selling author and performer. Amongst his successful endeavours was his move to Hollywood where he was the producer of The Joan Rivers Show. In addition to that he authored Son of a Meech in 1991 and later in 2000 he made the best-sellers list with his second book, Control Freaked.
In 1998 he co-founded the Humber School of Comedy where he serves as the producer in residence, and the artistic director of the Humber College Comedy Workshop.
If this wasn’t enough, Breslin then took on the role of programming director for the Laugh Canada channel on Canadian Satellite Radio where he gave both new and established Canadian talent national and international exposure.
Breslin is still very active in finding the next new “big thing”; he has, and always has had a keen eye on what the world needs to see next.
Mark Breslin brings a unique style to the usual Speaker Topics with his Comedy As A Way of Life, Adventures in Entrepreneurship, and Motivation Debunked: Motivation For The Highly Unmotivated.
