R. Mordant Mahon’s love of travel and connection came early. Born in Karachi, Pakistan to a future British flamenco dancer and a Greek merchant marine, and adopted at birth by a family in the State Department, he was a true globetrotter by the age of 8. Comfortable in many cultures, he tours internationally and around the USA, sharing his wit and wisdom with those ready to take steps towards the Positive.
In his mid-20s, Mordants co-founded the improv-comedy storytelling troupe known as the Tortuga Twins. Outrageously unpredictable, these three “twins” present a variety of audience-interactive tales including Robin Hood, Captain Morgan and the Island Queen, Swordfighting & Stupidity to name a few! With a background in street performance, the internationally renowned (yes, Canada counts) Tortuga Twins have thrilled audiences at theme parks, festivals, and private events alike.
R. Mordant Mahon is a Success Freak. With 3500+ live comedy performances via his “mild-mannered” day job, Mordant’s passion to Help Others Be Awesome has motivated him to use his powers for good. Author, podcaster, vlogger—he engages his energetic sense of humor and creative coaching style, inspiring others to level up their lives. Whether entertaining and edifying on his comedic motivational show, “Success Freaks,” or challenging people to dance outside their comfort zones via galvanizing speeches, Mordant gives both mind and spirit something to chew on while putting enough laughter in your heart to make you smile out loud.
A true Renaissance man, Mordants is an eclectic creative who has worked both sides of the camera, microphone, and stage—acting, writing, directing and producing.
