MC, Speaker, Comedian
Malcolm Dix is a ‘recovering’ Social Worker and Stand Up Comedian with 20 years’ experience in presenting to diverse, wonderful and challenging audiences. For much of his life Malcolm worked with homeless people in Australia and London and during this time he also commenced a career in stand up comedy, partly in an attempt to stay sane and healthy amidst the frequent chaos and challenging nature of his daily work.
Malcolm has performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as toured with its Comedy Festival Road Show and appeared on Rove Live, Triple J and the ABC. He can still be heard from time to time on talkback radio.
This unique combination of life experiences is what sets Malcolm apart from others. His natural high energy, insight, empathy and humour give Malcolm the flexibility to present as either a Speaker, Corporate Comic and/or Master of Ceremonies, and he is often engaged to perform all three roles at the one event.
Malcolm’s relaxed, approachable style is always focused on connecting with the audience and establishing an engaged and positive environment. Malcolm’s many years as a stand-up comic and club MC have honed his skills at setting the scene for following speakers to weave their magic at Conferences and various events. His versatility, experience and commitment to quality will ensure the success of your next event.
Today Malcolm is a father of four and as well as his roles as MC, Speaker and Corporate Comedian, he also runs Parenting workshops and writes for ‘Parenting Ideas’ magazine and has published two books encouraging parents to use humour in order to stay healthy (and sane!). Malcolm himself achieves this by indulging in his love of the Fremantle Dockers, backyard cricket with his kids and shows like Game of Thrones and the Walking Dead.
Malcolm's skills as an MC and presenter were outstanding. He absolutely made the difference between having a good conference and an exceptional conference! It was fantastic to have someone who understands our business, acknowledges our work, and at the same time enables us to laugh at ourselves. He brought energy, vitality and humour, and effortlessly made the conference flow. The feedback from staff was exceptionally positive, and left all participants wanting Malcolm to return again next year!

Malcolm was fantastic, he did a superb job and we were amazed at how well he knew what was going on and what the issues were, very clever using the information we provided to create what he did. Once again many many thanks to Malcolm for an excellent job!

Thank you for the laughter you created for the Hyundai Team. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed your sense of humour and many have phoned to say how wonderful the night was and commented on some of your quotes. You really helped make the night a huge success.
This was the second time Woodside has utilised Malcolm's services and he certainly did not disappoint. It was very, very clever and extremely funny: a most polished performance.
The best speaker was the loud, brash 'American' whom we fell for hook, line and sinker. Thank you so much Malcolm for tailoring your presentation to the specific requirements of our group. The National Conference delegates found extremely funny and entertaining - even more so once they realised it was a Hoax!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! People have been raving about the event non-stop. You were a smashing hit and just the perfect 'ingrediant' we needed!
