Howard Read -    Big Howard’s LOL-tastic Yukfest for Kids and Well Trained Adults

Howard is a massive kid. A massive kid with a moustache. He makes words, pictures, animation and noises, nearly all of which will make you laugh.

This hour of fun features stand-up, interactive digital animation, sound effects, jokes and lots and lots of clever nonsense (WARNING! some of the clever nonsense will be extremely stupid).

Howard has had his own show on CBBC with Little Howard, appeared on The Slammer and in front of the Queen at the Royal Variety Performance. He is also a regular performer for the renowned Comedy Club 4 Kids.

He’s written for Horrible Histories, Danger Mouse, Dennis The Menace, The Furchester Hotel, Counterfeit Cat and Gigglebiz. He’s won awards for his cartoons, kids and adult shows, on stage and on TV.

CAUTION: May contain the word “Elk”.
