- High on sensibility: The Golf Comic
T.P. Mulrooney has made his mark on American comedy as a the Golf Comic by mixing an animated persona with high sensibility humor.
Showtime, HBO, the major networks and Comedy Central have all showcased T.P.’s talent for personalizing and humanizing his observations.
Mulrooney’s years of experience performing for the meetings market told him to delve for the common thread running through every corporate group.
Now as “The Golf Comic,” T.P. uses his characters and impressions in a fresh approach to golf comedy that connects him to his audience immediately. (They’re always fresh off a four-hour round of golf.) From there he slides effortlessly into the clean, clever comedy that earned him his spot on the Wall of Fame. The ability to be funny about the game without making fun of the game has made him a favorite of clients such as Sun Microsystems, McDonald’s, Fannie Mae and Bayer, as well as the golf industry’s biggest names – The Golf Channel, the PGA and Senior PGA Tours.
The connection “The Golf Comic” makes with his corporate audience members can’t be matched by a general topic entertainer or speaker. T.P. says from experience, “I learned that the most masterfully designed sales incentive program is no match for the typical amateur golfer’s incentive to play a better round of golf. The sales incentive may go as deep as his pocketbook, but golf is in his soul.”
