Rodney Marks is Australia's (mis)leading corporate comedian.
As a corporate impostor, Rodney Marks has performed his Hoaxes and Jokeses® for many business, government and non-profit groups over the past two decades. He is based in Sydney and is happy to travel - even to Melbourne - to fool people into having a good time
His corporate comedy satirises management language, and is usually in the form of fraudulent keynote speeches at business events:
• awards nights
• cocktail parties
• product launches
• other special events, and
• roasts - for the retiring Managing Director, for example.
Rodney is an impersonator, a humorist and a political satirist. He combines these styles as a
corporate entertainer within the genre of the comic hoax.
In 2007, Rodney was honoured by the University of NSW with the title visiting professor-at-large. He has since been performing his own style of comedy for students on a part-time basis. Also, in March of this same year Rodney became the president of the National Speakers Association of Australia which he still holds today.
Rodney has presented his tailored corporate entertainment all over Australia, and has had more than 30 international tours.

Talking to the advisors afterwards, I was enthralled by the number who said they went through various stages of shock, horror, disbelief, amazement and relief. Not only did they go through the various stages, but they found themselves going in and out of each stage during your presentation. This was no doubt due to the effectiveness of your research and your ability to walk that fine line between fact and fiction. AMPView more
