(*Corporate Hoaxing is the writing of humorous keynote speeches and delivering them in character so that, at first, an audience is unaware that the speaker is in fact a comedian... of course, by the end, the audience will know. A Corporate Hoax is an excellent way to inject comedy and is always fresh and topical to the client)
