Stand up and cheer for Michael Mack
At Stanford & Sons
Unless you are a fan of stand-up comedy, the name 'Michael Mack’ may have escaped your notice before today. He appears regularly on the ‘Bob and Tom Show’ and his music can be heard on XM Satellite Radio. He is a former winner of ‘America’s Funniest People’ and ABC’s ‘The Next Big Thing’. However, if that’s all you know of this amazing performer, you simply don’t know enough.
Some would compare him with a more modern day version of ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic. Mack’s best known for his song parodies where he visits hit singles from the 70’s through today turning the table with his clever lyrics and surprisingly strong sense of humor. Example, his newest parody involves Oscar Pistorius and his ‘accidental’ shooting of his wife through the bathroom door. Mike travels back and does a showcase on former pop celebrities like the Bee Gee’s explaining why their voices are so high, all tucked into lyrics set to the tunes of their hit songs.
What brings the house down every show is the final fifteen minutes of his act where he does ‘Faces of Rock’, a comedic tribute to the legends of rock and roll over the past fifty years. He becomes a human puppet doing parodies on everyone from Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Twisted Sister, Whitney Houston, A-Ha, Lady Gaga and Queen. I don’t mind spoiling the ending, because it’s a sight that is impossible to describe. Mack is in shape at 6’3” and places a black wig on his head and turns into a nearly nude Howard Stern. After that, he reveals a final surprise that brings the audience to their feet every single show.
Michael Mack is one of the most entertaining shows of the year, though he doesn’t have the name recognition of Jim Jeffries, TJ Miller, Lewis Black and other ‘hot’ talents that have graced the stage of Stanford’s at the Legends. He still matches up when it comes to talent and simply delivering the funny.
See Michael this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Stanford & Sons. Call (913)400-7500 for tickets.
