Your unique skill as the consummate corporate impostor adds a wonderful dimension to any conference. All the preparatory work you put in certainly pays
off. I can’t think of a better-equipped MC. Looking forward to working with you again, Doctor whoever-you-are-today.
What does Rodney do, and what is a comic hoax? He arrives at an event in character, and mingles with attendees. If it is a conference,
he will attend a seminar, and ask a question; if it is a dinner, he will attend pre-dinner drinks and work the room.
This mixing establishes the credibility of Rodney’s comic character. At some agreed point, often advertised in the program, he will be called to a lectern
to deliver a “keynote address”.
At the conclusion of the “speech”, the performance continues with a Q&A session. These questions are not set up. Those in-the-know about the hoax are
observers. This time gives funny people in the group a chance to have some revenge … not really on Rodney, but on those who booked him.
Rodney has extensive experience as a comedy MC, at events ranging from awards nights and cocktail parties to multi-day conferences.
Usually he is a comic hoax character, but sometimes clients want him to be a straightforward comedian and to be identified as himself.
