Samuel Langhorne Clemens – better known as Mark Twain – is the ultimate American storyteller. His words have made us think and laugh for more than a century. Alan Kitty captures Twain’s enormous spirit and wit with live shows and presentations that are suitable for Theatrical, Educational and Platform Events.


Kitty has been impersonating Twain for nearly four decades. He has developed enough material to speak from Twain's point of view on an expanding number of issues, which enables him to create the perfect program for your audience.

The Mark Twain Education Society evolved from Kitty's one-man theatrical performances. Twain’s inspiration and impact proved to be larger than the stage, so Kitty focused his resources into the creation of programs and presentations designed to appeal to all audiences. During Twain’s lifetime, America made great strides as a nation of innovators and builders. It might be said a parade of American Dreamers grew up in Twain's century, and he was at the head of the procession — inspired by the self-educated and the self-made. Imagine having Mark Twain inspire your next event or meeting; or kicking off a conference with a lively keynote address.

Arouse motivation, enthusiasm and determination through this dynamic Twain experience, or present to your audience an entertainment beyond the norm. In the words of Twain himself, “The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” Contact the society today and get started on planning a Twain appearance for your next event!
