It's humor at a gut level. A level that isn't boisterous, but rather deep, spontaneous, knowing, deeply engaging, and a never forgotten experience.

That's what Carl Martens, performing Mark Twain Today (in the style of Hal Holbrook), has to offer your organization.

Carl has decades of experience, not only as an actor, director, and professional musician, but also as a published author and public speaker workshop facilitator.

He has performed for the National Speakers Association, University of California San Diego, various corporations, non-profit organizations, and occasional religious/spiritual organizations.

When Mark Twain Today performs for your group or organization, Mr. Martens brings Mr. Twain's wit, wisdom, and humor to the delight of every audience. At the same time, he reveals little known tidbits of some of the people within your organization. He also, “from where he is now,” goes beyond the legend of Hal Holbrook, in expanding the reach of Mr. Twain, by including original stories of other personalities from the past, like Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, William Shakespeare, Yogi Berra, and many others.

What do others say about his performances?


"First there was Mark Twain. Then there was Hal Holbrook. And now there's Carl Martens.
The tradition, the talent, and the wisdom live on. Thank God!"
Gregory Godek, author "How to be Mildly Brilliant"

“You got the man down well. It belies the expression, 'Never the Twain shall meet!'”
Clark Eide, author “A Monk's Way”

“I loved it! I liked Carl's Mark Twain better than Holbrook's!
A unique blend of Mississippi, mid-western, and New England twang!”
Scott Davis, author “Blurbs” & book editor

Carl has the ability, at your corporate function, fundraiser, or any type of special event, to keep an audience in a state of anticipation, resulting in a state of constant amusement throughout the performance. Very few speakers have the notoriety, believability, or unique delivery of Mark Twain.

Contact this legendary American writer/humorist/speaker today – and invite him to provide memorable entertainment for your function. A presentation that stands on its own, imparting ageless humor on age-old truths.

Mr. Twain said it best, "Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand."
