Corporate Hoaxes

'A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth'

Over the years Malcolm has posed as an assortment of experts from international CEOs, scientists, mining and gas advisors, lawyers, academics and economists, to professional golfers, ex-Olympians and a retired Astronaut.

Comedian Malcolm Dix constructs a perfect hoax to leave the audience inspired and entertained, while also working with clients to weave in the key messages and themes of the event.

Malcolm will not only have the audience laughing but he will get audiences talking, thinking and reflecting on the way they work and engage with the wider world.

What sets Malcolm apart from the others:

  • Writing customised material for each event
  • Seamlessly weaving in relevant key messages and themes
  • Generating big laughs

What are Malcolm’s needs for the Hoax?


Essential requirements are:

  • A lectern
  • A microphone in a stand
  • A raised stage to be seen
  • A seated audience (we make some exceptions for cocktail parties)
  • We also ask that food is not served or cleared during the presentation

How does Malcolm create the Hoax?


  1. To prepare, we send you a list of ten questions for some context and background
  2. Then Malcolm does his own research and may also draw on what he has learned working with similar or connected fields or industries
  3. Malcolm will call you to discuss the responses to your questions
  4. If the Hoax is to be delivered at a Conference, Malcolm likes to attend where possible to observe and gather material
  5. You’ll be given an introduction to read for “The Special Guest”
