Jack goes Hunting and other Tales

CD-Audio: 'Jack goes Hunting and other Tales' Stories to make you laugh, stories to move you with beauty and truth. You will listen again and again.

Richard's style reminds me very much of a cross between Taffy Thomas and Richard Walker ... the stories are well told, the audience enjoys them and so did I. ...
Thanks Richard

Pete Castle's review in Facts & Fiction (Feb. 2004).

    Here are two clips from the ever-popular title tale. The first is the beginning of the story told in Göckelschen in Groß-Zimmern.
    (As you can hear, there were several English people in the audience, including one woman from Ascot).

    Here a clip from later in the tale, told years ago at Café Extra.


The video clips here are all amateur quality, shot in various theatres.
Their intention is just to show the range of my storytelling and give a flavour of a live performance.
