Young Herbert's Horrors
Half Moon Productions
Age suitability 3 plus
Young Herbert is a little horror. Living on a boat should be the ideal life for a wannabe pirate, but the boat’s grounded until Herbert can learn to tidy his cabin, eat his greens and be more polite. A big storm brews when Herbert is sent home from school and Mum calls on Great Uncle Albatross – navy captain and scourge of all pirates – to warn him of the dangers of rebellion.
But who is Great Uncle Albatross and do his cautionary tales really have the power to make Young Herbert behave? Or will they just give Young Herbert the horrors?
Featuring swashbuckling verse, jaunty music, gallows humour and the obligatory parrot, Young Herbert’s Horrors is Justin Coe’s brand new spoken word show for children, following the highly popular Big Wow, Small Wonder.
“If your kids love the high seas and pirate-adventures this is the show for you… A one-man show packed with poetry, jokes and a real feast for the imagination – we had a great family outing courtesy of Herbert!” (Kidadl, 2018)
“Bravo! Fabulous, funny and the children were mesmerised” (Audience Member)
Are We Being Silly?
a stand-up style interactive poetry show suitable for small venues, libraries, festivals, school halls, bookshops and community centres
A stand-up poetry show packed full of punchy jokes and playful mischief with plenty of opportunities for audience participation.
Are you being silly? For goodness sake, sit up straight and pay attention! Performance Poet Justin Coe is now 37 YEARS LATE for his homework! He desperately needs your help, before his angry teacher finally catches up with him and sends him back to school for DETENTION. There’s much work to be done but no doubt Justin will still find plenty of time to show –off his ridiculous rhymes, rib-tickling tales and zany songs. Beautifully suitable for gigglers, wrigglers and scribblers, wander-abouters, shouter-outers, dads, mums and fidget-bums, Justin’s poems will prove that there’s no experience too sobering or too silly for words.
