Purveyor of Tall Tales, Short Stories and Pithy Poetry
(Have Words, Will Travel)
Old Jack, the Aussie Gleeman, is Australia’s preeminent story teller, drawing on a full life as sportsman, scholar and actor.
He’s been everywhere, seen a lot, heard a lot, done a lot.
Near and far, wide and narrow...
His stories, drawn from near and far, cover a wide territory but always with a smile on his face. He presents them in both poetry and prose, most are his own compositions but others sometimes begged, borrowed or stolen from elsewhere. With or without appropriate modification in light of OLD JACK’s take on modern life. All will amuse, delight and entertain in equal portions.
Always a yarn to share...
For each show OLD JACK gathers together the most entertaining stories pertinent for the particular event and audience. All good for pubs, clubs, conferences, corporate events, charity functions, variety shows, senior schools, wherever a good yarn, or three, or more are needed. Anywhere from 5 minutes to 50.
