This list is part of an ongoing series of examples of my comic corporate impostor roles. If I show 10 at a time, there will be about 300 posts.

I have a database with more material, including client feedback, audio and video, and anecdotes. When working ‘live’, the performance often disappears into the ether.

Here are some examples of comedy hoaxes that I’ve presented, with topics, clients, venues and joke-name characters:

I’m an Australian comedian, comedy hoax speaker and corporate impostor. I present comic hoax keynotes at business events. If you like these examples of comic corporate hoaxes that I’ve perpetrated, you’ll like my live comedy. If you don’t like these blogs, you still might like my live comedy.

Add to your bookmarks, and one day: book Marks. I don’t do cheap jokes, and I’m freer than you think. I’m comical not anatomical, economical not astronomical.
