The Joshua Show has the look and feel of an episode of a classic children's television show featuring grumpy Mr. Nicholas, who has to learn how to trick himself into being happy on days when he can’t seem to find a smile in his head. Joshua, through puppetry, music, dancing, and the power of positivity and with genuinely warm humor, encourages him, and the audience, to celebrate their own authenticity and be themselves.
A delightful show that is truthful and sincere, The Joshua Show is genuinely accessible to adults as well as kids. It has played at the Nasty, Brutish, & Short Puppet Cabaret in Chicago, and was short-listed for the National Puppet Slam in Atlanta, GA.
“I create joyful entertainment that entices the imagination and makes people feel happy. It has become my mission in life to spread joy & happiness to kids young and old throughout the world. In my puppetry I have found a beautiful vehicle to do this. I find that by committing myself to being REALLY honest and specific with my storytelling, I engage a wide audience. I believe in speaking to kids as I would to adults and, conversely, I believe adults never lose the sense of being a kid... it just gets buried deep inside… I like to unearth it for them.”
