Ok we can officially pinch ourselves for getting the opportunity to host a comedian who is billed by some as "The second funniest person in the Twin Cities"... I say move over Garrison... Mary is funnier. Who is Mary? Well I've seen and heard her on the Big River Radio Wave show from Alma WI, but her website lists some of the following:
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.” Here’s a few accomplishments: Sing-alongs of the Bob & Tom Show, XM’s National Lampoon's Comedy Network, and Minnesota's Polka Spotlight. 2005 California's Funniest Female Contest, HBO's Andy Kaufman Awards (2007), Big River Wave regular (Alma WI) and NBC's Last Comic Standing. Mack’s endearing stage presence and off-kilter, musical surprises, stemming from her background as former music teacher and polka bandleader make her popular with a wide array of people, including the deep fry cook at the Minnesota State Fair Mini Donut Booth who purchased a total of twelve Mary Mack CD's.
