APCA College Entertainer of the Year 2024

The Travelin' Max Show has become a tradition on campuses across America... and for some long-time loyal host schools, it's been deemed an undergraduate rite of passage!!

It's also ideal when you need an emcee for multiple act events, like a campus music festival or a student talent show. I will fill the otherwise dead space between acts seamlessly, while keeping the audience engaged during equipment and set changes!

Four Time Winner of the APCA Entertainer of the Year Award.

As a student programmer, you need a program that will be successful and easy to put on. I will do whatever it takes to insure the success of your event. I'll provide posters, table tents, photographs, biographies, and press releases prior to the performance date. On the day of the performance, I'll do ``teasers`` and publicity events whenever possible.

The show has appeared thousands of times at all types of institutions: Large Traditional Universities, Community Colleges, Technical Schools, Satellite Campuses, and Religious Universities (always 100% clean).

For your convenience, the show can be completely self-contained. Excellent sound systems are available to rent for a nominal fee – call for information.

Any Venue

My versatile act has been staged in every imaginable setting: Concert Venues, Theaters, Cafeterias, Quads, Athletic Fields, Pool Side, one time even on ice in the school rink. This is the perfect choice for all your COMMUNITY BUILDING, STUDENT RETENTION and ICE BREAKER activities!

“A couple from (the Freshmen/Parent Orientation Event was) overwhelmed with gratitude when they saw their son on stage actually participating in your show. He has social anxiety disorder, so new social settings are intimidating and cause him to become anxious. The dad was especially touched and rushed right over to point out his son to me; it was really incredible. I’m a social worker so I know how amazing it is that he was on stage and even participating. I don't know if you often learn of the impact your show has on the audience.”

Most importantly he was very nice and extremely cooperative with me and my staff (that made my job much easier!!). Thanks for allowing us to enjoy such a wonderful show!

He was absolutely amazing as I would only expect him to be. I think this was the best show here in a long time... the crowd just would not leave because he was keeping them going the entire night.

Max really shined. He worked hard to get their attention, formed a conga line, had a group of singers on stage, had contests and helped an awful lot of students have a very good time. I think that there is no one who works any harder at having fun than Travelin Max! He really did great!"
