Stand-up chameleon and jargon master.


Rodney Marks is Australia's (mis)leading corporate comedian.

Current work
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:

• seminars
• meetings
• conferences
• 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.

Previous experience
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.

"Jim Kirk" futureshocks staff. A mildmannered, big-titled, public servant with change-of-season coloured braces et al., shocked our interstate staff into believing that their states were at the brink of collapse. Big relief set in when "Jim Kirk" turned into Rodney Marks!! However, one staffer has since crossed the border and is now working in Sydney (just in case?). Australian Business Monthly
